The navigation view control provides a collapsible navigation pane that helps implement the hamburger menu pattern and automatically adapts the pane's display mode to different control sizes. The idea of the control is to be a top-level container and to contain all the controls and views that would be typically placed on a form. The menu pane is for navigation between different views and is not meant to contain actions.


The controls contains four DisplayModes the developer to choose from:

  • Minimal
  • Compact
  • Expanded
  • Auto

Detailed information about the views is available here: Display Modes.
