Windows 8 Using XAML, Part 17: Shares and Searching

with expert Matt Baxter-Reynolds

Working with Windows 8 brings a new set of tools. We'll look at an important part of the Windows 8 experience - the share charms. Sharing is a key differentiator between the Windows 8 proposition and the iPad. It allows apps to share information in a very fluid, freeform way, creating a rich interaction on the device. Then we'll see how to implement searching, another key part of the Windows 8 experience. When searching, users use a common user interface to perform a basic search and then use filters - designed to your specification - to refine the results.
