Apply your existing skills with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript—and start building your own Windows 8 apps now. As a member of the Windows Ecosystem team, the author has trained hundreds of Microsoft engineers and has been on the front lines of bringing the first Windows 8 apps to the Windows Store. Through this book, you’ll get a thorough grounding in platform features and considerations, and delve into development essentials. “Quickstart” sections provide ready experience with the tools, API, and core features. And you’ll gain insights and best practices on design, coding, and performance from real-world developers working on real-world apps.

Topics includes:

Platform Characteristics
App Anatomy and Page Navigation
Controls, Control Styling, and Basic Data Binding
Collections and Collection Controls

Developers and enterprise users can side-load 27 apps, but for the vast majority of the people you care about, they go to the Windows Store and nowhere else. This obviously means that an app—the culmination of your development work—has to get into the Store in the first place. This happens when you take your pride and joy, package it up, and upload it to the Store by using the Store/Upload App Package command in Visual Studio. 1 The package itself is an appx file (.appx)—see Figure 1-1—that

controlled by certain capabilities, the user can always point your app to other nonsystem areas of the file system—and any type of file—from within the file picker UI. (See Figure 1-8.) This explicit user action, in other words, is taken as consent for your app to access that particular file or folder (depending on what you’re asking for). Once you’re app is given this access, you can use certain APIs to record that permission so that you can get to those files and folders the next time your app

The css folder contains a default.css file where you’ll see media query structures for the four view states that all apps should honor. We’ll see this in action in the next section, and I’ll discuss all the details in Chapter 6, “Layout.” The images folder contains four reference images, and unless you want to look like a real

but that doesn’t solve injections coming from deeper inside the library. In the jQuery example given here, the control can be created but clicking a date in that control generates another error. In short, you’re free to use third-party libraries so long as you’re aware that they were generally written with assumptions that don’t always apply within the app container. Over time, of course, fully Windows 8–compatible versions of such libraries will emerge. Here My Am! with ms-appdata OK! Having
