XAML Values

headerString

A text string that serves as header content.

headerObject

An single object element that serves as header content. Use discretion when using objects as header content; not all objects are suitable for use within the limited presentation surface that appears for headers.

Property value

Type: System.Object [.NET] | Platform::Object [C++]

The content of the section header. The default is null.

Remarks

Add a header to let users know the context of your Hub section. It's important to remember that although you can use arbitrary content in the header, the height of the header affects the amount of vertical space available for your hub section content. The section header scrolls with the hub section.

You can use a data template for the header by setting the HeaderTemplate property.

You can make a section header interactive by setting the IsHeaderInteractive property to true. Typically, the user can tap an interactive header to navigate to the corresponding app section page.

You can respond to a tapped header by handling the Hub.SectionHeaderClick event, and you get the section that was clicked from the SectionHeaderClickEventArgs.Section property of the event data.

When its IsHeaderInteractive property is true, the default header includes a chevron glyph, and "Hover" and "Pressed" visual states. If you use a custom HeaderTemplate, you should provide similar visual cues to indicate that the header is interactive.
