Creating pages with the Visual Studio templates

The Okra App Framework includes a Visual Studio extension that provides a number of item templates for creating typical Windows Store application pages. Once you have downloaded and installed the extension you can select Okra App Framework specific MVVM templates from the Visual Studio Add New Item dialog. Many of these match the default Windows Store item templates but include the "(MVVM)" suffix. Each item template includes a XAML page and view-model as well as a class for providing design-time data.

The provided item templates include,
  • Basic Page (MVVM) - A minimal page with layout awareness, a title, and a back button
  • Split Page (MVVM) - A page that displays a list of items and the details for a selected item
  • Items Page (MVVM) - A page that displays a collection of item
  • Item Detail Page (MVVM) - A page that displays one item in detail along with navigation to adjacent items in the same group
  • Grouped Items Page (MVVM) - A page that displays item previews arranged in groups
  • Group Detail Page (MVVM) - A page that displays details for a single group and previews each item in the group
  • Search Contract (MVVM) - An app contract that supports displaying search results
  • Share Target Contract (MVVM) - An app contract that supports receiving items shared by other apps
  • Settings Pane (MVVM) - A settings pane
