adidas samba black ComDayBe Flyout control in XAML through Callisto for Windows 8
Here we are with part 3 and this time we will be talking about using the appbar and implementing a Flyout Control. More detail on what it is and when to use it, is given hereBut why would we need to put a blog post up about it, well because if you go through all the examples on the MSDN site, you’ll notice that there is no XAML version available!!
Yep with Windows 8 RP there is still no XAML flyout control out of the box!But there is a good alternative for this, that is by using the Callisto lib created by Tim Heuer! If you want you can simply add it through the Callisto NuGet. This lib contains several neat features, but for me the FlyOut control for XAML is by far the most valueable.So once refernced,
how do you add a flyout control this is done through code behind on your view page. In our case we want to trigger the visibility of the flyout when the user presses an appbar button.
