Title bar sample

Shows various ways of customizing the title bar.

Note: This sample is part of a large collection of UWP feature samples. If you are unfamiliar with Git and GitHub, you can download the entire collection as a ZIP file, but be sure to unzip everything to access shared dependencies. For more info on working with the ZIP file, the samples collection, and GitHub, see Get the UWP samples from GitHub. For more samples, see the Samples portal on the Windows Dev Center.

The sample shows the following techniques:

  • Customizing the colors in the standard system title bar.
  • Extending the view into the title bar, so you can draw a custom title bar.
  • Responding to changes in title bar states.
  • Drawing controls in the title bar (XAML only).

Note The Windows universal samples require Visual Studio 2017 to build and Windows 10 to execute.

Note Not all of the title bar functionality is available in all builds. Functionality will arrive gradually as newer builds are released.

To obtain information about Windows 10 development, go to the Windows Dev Center

Build the sample

  1. If you download the samples ZIP, be sure to unzip the entire archive, not just the folder with the sample you want to build.
  2. Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and select File > Open > Project/Solution.
  3. Starting in the folder where you unzipped the samples, go to the Samples subfolder, then the subfolder for this specific sample, then the subfolder for your preferred language (C++, C#, or JavaScript). Double-click the Visual Studio Solution (.sln) file.
  4. Press Ctrl+Shift+B, or select Build > Build Solution.

Run the sample

The next steps depend on whether you just want to deploy the sample or you want to both deploy and run it.

Deploying the sample

  • Select Build > Deploy Solution.

Deploying and running the sample

  • To debug the sample and then run it, press F5 or select Debug > Start Debugging. To run the sample without debugging, press Ctrl+F5 or select Debug > Start Without Debugging.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
