Episode 43 of Visual Studio Toolbox: Designing Metro Style Line of Business Apps


In this episode, I review a Windows 8 app I built. This line of business app provides the ability for employees to create and submit expense reports, and for managers to view and approve or reject them. I am joined by Nadine Fox of Macadamian, the design firm that helped create the app’s user interface. We cover a variety of topics, including navigation patterns, the use of app bars (including what buttons go where on the app bar), modal vs non modal data entry screens, notifications, and more.

I am very close to making this app available as a sample. Stay tuned for details on how to get it.

    Hi Robert,

    You mentioned that you needed some icons to "spiff up" your app Have you checked out Metro Studio 2 from Syncfusion for some icons?

    Great video as always.
