Pivot sample

Shows how to use a Pivot control in your UWP application.

Note: This sample is part of a large collection of UWP feature samples. You can download this sample as a standalone ZIP file from docs.microsoft.com, or you can download the entire collection as a single ZIP file, but be sure to unzip everything to access shared dependencies. For more info on working with the ZIP file, the samples collection, and GitHub, see Get the UWP samples from GitHub. For more samples, see the Samples portal on the Windows Dev Center.

Specifically, this sample shows how to:

  • Use pivots across devices : No longer just a mobile control, pivot works great with mouse, keyboard, and touch
  • Show custom header content: Learn how to create responsive experiences with the new header content areas
  • Create custom experices: With its improved flexibility, learn how to create a 'tabs-style' experience with Pivot

Note The Windows universal samples require Visual Studio to build and Windows 10 to execute.
