Members

Member name Description
Default The Application Bar default size. A row of icon buttons and an ellipsis appear.
Minimized The Application Bar minimized size. Only an ellipsis appears.

Remarks

ApplicationBarMode specifies the size of the Application Bar when it first appears on a page. It also specifies the size that the Application Bar returns to after the user expands it and collapses it using the ellipsis.

The ApplicationBarMode type is used to specify the Mode property of an ApplicationBar object. The default value is Default.

Use the mini size on pages where you want to maximize screen space, such as on panorama pages.

Note

On pages that support landscape orientation, when in landscape orientation, the Application Bar appears with the default size regardless of the Mode value, to improve usability.
