AppBarCommand.section property

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Gets or sets the section of the AppBar that hosts the AppBarCommand.

Syntax


var section = appBarCommand.section;

Property value

Type: string

"selection" if the command is in the selection section; otherwise "global".

Remarks

An AppBar control with a layout property set to "commands" can contain only AppBarCommand controls.

The "commands" value is the default setting for the layout property. This layout includes two sections: "global" and "selection".

"global" maps to right and "selection" maps to left in LTR (left-to-right) layouts. The opposite is true in RTL (right-to-left) layouts.

"global" is intended for commands that should be displayed at all times.

"selection" is intended for context commands for selected objects.

  • Applies to Windows Phone

Note  

"global" is for primary commands that are always visible in the app bar.

"selection" is for non-primary (or secondary) commands. These are text-based menu items that appear when a primary command is invoked.

Note  You can put any HTML in the app bar if you set the layout to "custom". However, an app bar with a "custom" layout doesn’t have the full functionality available to an app bar using the "commands" layout.
