XAML Slinger

The bad news is Windows 10 has no data grid built into the basic control set. The good news is you probably don't need one. In this session, you'll see various alternatives to traditional data grid designs, and learn how to design and build them using XAML on the Universal Windows Platform.

You will learn:

  • Why the Universal Windows Platform doesn't have a native data grid control.
  • A variety of potential designs that can replace data grids.
  • The advanced data templating techniques needed to create superior alternatives to data grid UX.
