XAML: ApplicationBar not defined compiling AppBar C++ sample. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to build the C++ AppBar sample using the VS11 beta, but the XAML compiler complains that ApplicationBar isn't defined.

    What do I need to do?

  • Are you trying to run a Developer Preview sample on the Consumer Preview? The ApplicationBar control was renamed to AppBar. See the //Build to Windows 8 Consumer Preview whitepaper for more information on changes you need to make when migrating an app from the Developer Preview to the Consumer Preview.

    If you're using a current sample can you please provide a link to the specific sample?

  • Yes, I was trying to build the Developer Preview version because the newer one has only an HTML/javascript version of the project, which does me little good (a problem with quite a few of the samples, by the way).

    Oh, well.
