UWP: SplitView XAML Control

SplitView Class in XAML provides us with two views, one for Main content and the other, a Pane that can be used for navigation.

This is the inheritance chain:

UIElement | Framework Element | Control |SplitView

An Example using Visual Studio Community 2017

You can get a basic start with the SplitView Control here.

You could replace the default 'grid' in a Blank UWP project shown here:


Use the following in its place:

This is ready for build. Build and run the app in the Local Computer.
This is what you see when the app is run.

There is a Pane (the SplitView. Pane and there is a TextBlock named 'Content' in the Grid.

Now I change the OpenPanelLenth (presently 296) to, say 150 and build and run the app. What do I see?

SplitView 2

In the 'Pane' you can place controls and hook up events to them to display related 'Content' in the Content (i.e., inside the 'grid' control) on the right.
