Introduction


In this article I describe how to create a Windows Store App for embedding a panning element into a horizontal panning element using JavaScript. In my previous article I described Panning and Scrolling in a Windows Store app; that for visit, Panning and Scrolling in Windows Store Apps using Java Script.

I assume you can create a simple Windows Store App using JavaScript. For more help visit Simple Windows Store Apps using JavaScript.

To start the creation of the app, add
one HTML page by right-clicking on the name of your project in the Solution Explorer and select Add > new item > HTML Page and then give an appropriate name. In the same way, add images to the images folder in your project.

Write the following code in default.html:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

    <meta charset="utf-8" />

    <title>apps</title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="//Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/css/ui-light.css" />

    <script src="//Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/js/base.js"></script>

    <script src="//Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/js/ui.js"></script>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/default.css" />

    <script src="/js/script1.js"></script>

    <script src="/js/default.js"></script>

</head>

<body role="application" style="background-color: lightcoral">

    <center><div id="rootGrid">

       <div id="content">

            <h1 id="featureLabel"></h1>

            <div id="contentHost"></div>

        </div>

        </div></center>

</body>

</html>

Write the following code in default.js:
 

(function () {

    "use strict";

    var AppTitle = "";

    var pages = [

        { url: "page.html" }

    ];

    function activated(eventObject) {

        if (eventObject.detail.kind === Windows.ApplicationModel.Activation.ActivationKind.launch) {

            eventObject.setPromise(WinJS.UI.processAll().then(function () {

                var url = WinJS.Application.sessionState.lastUrl || pages[0].url;

                return WinJS.Navigation.navigate(url);

            }));

        }

    }

    WinJS.Navigation.addEventListener("navigated", function (eventObject) {

        var url = eventObject.detail.location;

        var host = document.getElementById("contentHost");

        host.winControl && host.winControl.unload && host.winControl.unload();

        WinJS.Utilities.empty(host);

        eventObject.detail.setPromise(WinJS.UI.Pages.render(url, host, eventObject.detail.state).then(function () {

            WinJS.Application.sessionState.lastUrl = url;

        }));

    });

 

    WinJS.Namespace.define("app", {

        AppTitle: AppTitle,

        pages: pages

    });

 

    WinJS.Application.addEventListener("activated", activated, false);

    WinJS.Application.start();

})();
 

Write the following code in page.html:
 

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

    <title></title>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/default.css" />

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/chaining.css" />

</head>

<body>

    <div data-win-control="app.pageInput">

    </div>

    <div data-win-control="app.pageOutput">

        <div class="ManipulationContainer Horizontal MandatorySnapInterval">

            <div class="Image_Row">

                <div class="ManipulationContainer zoomElement ProximitySnapList scrollChaining row1 col1">

                    <img alt="1" src="/images/1.jpg" />

                </div>

                <div class="ManipulationContainer zoomElement ProximitySnapList scrollChaining row1 col2">

                    <img alt="2" src="/images/2.jpg" />

                </div>

            </div>

        </div>

    </div>

</body>

</html>
