Adding ListView, SemanticZoom, and other data controls (XAML)

[ This article is for Windows 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x developers writing Windows Runtime apps. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation ]

Most applications manipulate and display sets of data, such as a gallery of images or a set of email messages. The XAMLUI framework for Windows Runtime apps provides several controls that make it easy to display and manipulate data. The topics in this section describe these data and presentation controls: FlipView, ListView, GridView, and SemanticZoom.
