QuestionThe Metro Tile expands: and then ... what ? PinmemberBillWoodruff13-Jan-12 0:35 
I had a long and interesting conversation with a friend at MS about Metro, and he made the statement that there's no reason an expanded Metro tile (which I interpret to mean the launch of a Metro App that "fills the screen" ... which may, or may not, contain other Tiles):
 
Could indeed display a complex control, like a TreeView.
 
Since that conversation, I have been looking to find one example of some suggestion of a future control that could operate within a full-screened Metro App which reminds me of some of the common controls found in WinForms or WPF, like a TreeView, or some of the usual controls found in various major "suites" from Telerik, Lidor, DevXpress, etc. ...
 
My impression is that Metro is a "design language" that precludes use of controls that look like the TreeView we might be used to today: that precludes anything but one-level-at-a-time "drill-down" or "pop-back-up."
 
I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts, and possibly getting my (all too often incorrect) impressions corrected.
 
Now I do, indeed, understand that to some extent Metro qua "design language" is targeted at smaller form-factor delivery platforms, but if I am running Metro on a "big screen" ... am I not going to have access to controls with more possible representation of "levels of hierarchy" when I have full-screened a Metro Tile ?
 
thanks, Bill
