I know this might appear to be a silly question but I'm coming up against some problems developing an app using the Metro framework and I'm looking for a definitive answer as to what the difference is between Metro and desktop application development.
Aside from getting to grips with WIN RT I've hit some snags every time when trying to refresh my memory on how to use little pieces of functionality in XAML. For example, I'm trying to create a continuously fading in and out animation on a button to draw the users attention to that button. So, I can't quite remember how to set up an animation inside a Style. Ok no problem, I check the Google machine with the following search term..
storyboard xaml METRO event trigger
..and get the following result which contains a nice snippet of code for me to hack. Herein lies the problem. This article
on MSDN implies you can do this:
<Setter Property="Opacity" Value="0.25" />
But this does not compile in my project. As Triggers is not a valid property.
I'm running the same version of .NET and the article does not seem to say you can or can't use this within a Metro app.
- As I say this appears to be a silly question and I can't find a definitive answer anywhere but does Metro have a different flavor of XAML (if that is even the correct way to describe it)?
- What is the proper term to describe this framework so my searches are more effective?
