Video of the week: Implementing Snap, Filled and Portrait Views in Windows 8 apps

If you are building a Windows 8 app, you must support snap view. This video shows you how to do it with XAML apps.

I came across this video in a blog post by Jerry Nixon, a developer evangelist in Colorado. It’s a nice simple example and walkthrough on how to support the different views such as snap view, filled view, portrait and landscape view in a Windows 8 XAML app. The video takes a brand new page and adds support for each view and shows you how to check the appearance of each view.


Great explanation Jerry, thanks. There are lots of other great resources and articles on Jerry’s blog as well.

Once you’ve got that snap view supported, you are one step closer to publishing and getting rewards through the developer movement!
