Learn about the UWP community toolkit and the HamburgerMenu control we can use for navigation.
- [Instructor] Now that our client API is implemented,…we'll start constructing the user experiences in our app.…To start with, we'll implement a navigation model.…One common pattern for UWP apps is to have what's…called a Hamburger Menu style navigation model.…A good example of this in action is…in the builtin Windows Groove app.…At the very top left, you can see this Hamburger icon…with the three horizontal bars.…Clicking on it expands the navigation pane…with all the different pages to navigate to…such as Songs or Artists.…
Minimizing it just shows the icon representation…which is still clickable.…One way to easily implement the Hamburger Menu…in our app is to use a tool…called the UWP Community Toolkit.…The UWP Community Toolkit is an open source project…that was built in collaboration with engineers at Microsoft.…It provides a lot of utilities to accelerate UWP development…including various XAML controls,…animations, helper classes and more.…We're just going to use the Hamburger Menu from the toolkit.…
The toolkit comes with pretty extensive documentation…
