No arrow is shown inside the FlipView control on a device without mouse RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my app, I use the FlipView control as the replacement of win32 Tab control, with each child page implemented using FlipViewItem. The problem is the FlipView class offers no visual clue to the users that they should flip among multiple FlipViewItem pages using horizontal swipe gestures. On a laptop with mouse, there is an arrow shown at left/right edge of the FlipView control if users move the mouse inside the FlipView control. On a device without mouse however, such an arrow is not shown at all.

    So what's the best practice to use the FlipView control? How can I inform the users to flip between items?
