Hamburger Menu with SplitView in Windows 10 Apps

Download Hamburger Sample Project

I created a sample project to demonstrate using the SplitView to create a hamburger menu for universal app (Windows 10 apps). I found two other samples online and took what I need from them.

Some features shown in this sample:

  • Displaying the back button in the title line
  • IsSelected property for navigation items changes the color
  • Showing an Options item command on bottom and displaying a OptionsControl (also SplitView)
  • Very basic and simple MVVM approach with no additional libraries.
  • Custom coloring through resources
  • Windows 10 mobile switch added by using VisualStateManager

Look at the screen shots
