Windows 8 Using HTML5 and JS, Part 5: Page Layout

with Peter Thorsteinson

This course will start out reviewing traditional CSS3 Layout, including flexbox, regions, and multicolumn layout. Then we will discuss WinJS controls that support additional UI layout options, including the ListView, SemanticZoom, and ViewBox controls. We will see that the ListView displays items in grid or list layout, whereas the SemanticZoom supports zoom between two semantic levels, and the ViewBox allows for dynamically scaling single child element to fill available space without changing aspect ratio.
