Search bar design in Bing Fitness app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys, 

    Anyone know how the searchbar in the bing fitness app works? It seems to float across all screens and can expand maximize depending on the view it is in.

    Is there also a place that has tips for implementing tricks like that in xaml so ALL of the windows 8 apps are beautiful, not just the ones from MS?

  • I'm not sure of the exact behavior you're looking for (we cannot reverse engineer other apps), but the basics look like they just floated a searchbox over a hub control. I don't see anything particularly tricky going on.

    The health and fitness app appears to be written in HTML/JavaScript, not in Xaml.
