My new article on Windows 8 controls is featured in Visual Studio Magazine.

Point of Views for Windows 8 Published in Visual Studio Magazine (August 2012)

I have a new cover story article published in print and online in Visual Studio Magazine today called, “New Views on Windows 8 Metro-Style Development”. This article takes a look at the FlipView, ListView and GridView controls new for Windows 8 Metro-style applications. They'll become key tools for building great-looking UIs. See below for more information and a link to the online article in case you don’t get a print copy.

Article Introduction

With Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 getting closer to general availability, Microsoft-focused developers are starting to pay closer attention. They're not only trying to understand the ins and outs of Windows 8, but are also wrapping their heads around a new runtime called Windows Runtime (WinRT).

WinRT is the new Microsoft programming model to build Metro-style apps using Windows 8. One of the challenges developers face with WinRT is learning how to use the new controls introduced with the release: FlipView, ListView and GridView.

While the controls sound similar, they're different in many ways. Read on to learn how and when to use each.
