Helpful WinRT Samples

The following is a list of samples that I've found helpful as I continue to work on my first WinRT application:

XAML AppBar control sample

Demonstrates how to use the AppBar control to present navigation, commands and tools to users.  Of interest is the information on using Page.TopBar and Page.BottomBar (versus doing it as a Grid segment) and how to configure a global AppBar so you don't have to add these to every page.


Sharing content source app sample

Demonstrates how an app can share content with another app using classes from Windows.ApplicationModel.DataTransfer namespace.  This provides the ability to share Text, URIs, Files, Images and custom content between multiple applications through a common UI experience.


I'll continue to add to this list as I find more...
