navigation recommendations for metro 8 apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello guys.

    Are there any docs available with recommendations on how to build navigation menus for metro apps? In my case, I have something like this:


    <-  ->  page1  page2  page3

    So, I have a title defined with an h1 element and then a nav section with back/forward buttons and an ul element transformed into an horizontal menu by applying some styles.

    What I'd like to know is:

    1. Are there any recommendations for replacing this type of UI? I mean, should I keep using this approach for metro apps? If the answer is no, with what should I replace it?

    2. Are there any predefined stryles which should be applied to the menu items? I've noticed there's no forward button, though getting the right style was a matter of copying all the win-backbutton styles and changing the character used for the arrow (btw, why are the back button definitions scattered all over the css file???)...but what about the menu items? Should I apply any predefined styles to it?
