Basic Building Blocks of Windows 8 Design

  • Brent Schooley


In the first three chapters of this book, you were introduced to the fundamentals of the Microsoft design language and explored some design strategies to help guide your design process. At this point, we’re ready to get down to some nuts and bolts of Windows 8 application design. The various controls available in WinRT provide the building blocks we will use to create our applications. Understanding the types of controls that should be used in specific situations and the process involved in designing them are essential to good application design. As discussed in the “show pride in craftsmanship” principle (see Chapter 2), choosing the right tool for the right job is a major key to success.
