This video shows how to modify the homepage and the App class to make a customized shell homepage.
- [Instructor] In this video, we'll look at how…to modify the app class to work with our shell…in the way we want to navigate, not the default.…So we'll start by looking at the app class itself.…There are two parts to this file.…There's app.xaml and app.xaml.cs.…In the xaml file you have your markup.…This is typically where you define your resources,…your styles, and things like that.…The only interesting thing here is line 6…where I have specified RequestedTheme="Dark".…The app class itself is in the C# file.…Line 23 is where the class is declared.…
Name of the class is App,…and it derives from a framework class called Application.…We specify this as the startup class,…or the entry point, I should say,…in the Package.appxmanifest file right here.…Next is the onlaunch method,…and inside here is a debug section…that says, if you're debugging,…and you happen to have a debugger attached,…then enable the frame rate counter.…
This is how we get the frame rate UI in the application.…I don't want that for the rest of this course,…
