Static List View in Windows Store App

In this article I describe how to create a Windows Store App for a Static List View using JavaScript.

Introduction

In this article I describe how to create a Windows Store App for a Static List View using JavaScript. This app shows how to use the List View control's static mode to create a virtualized list that does not respond to user input.

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 two JavaScript pages by right-clicking on the js folder in the Solution Explorer and select "Add" > "New item" > "JavaScript Page" and then provide an appropriate name. In the same way, add one HTML page to your project.

Write the following code in default.html:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

    <meta charset="utf-8" />

    <title></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/default.js"></script>

</head>

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

    <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>

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

</head>

<body>

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

    </div>

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

        <div id="commentsTemplate" data-win-control="WinJS.Binding.Template" style="display: none">

            <div class="commentTemplateClass">

                <h2 data-win-bind="innerText: title"></h2>

                <p data-win-bind="innerText: text"></p>

            </div>

        </div>

        <div id="commentsSection">

            <div id="itemDetail">

                <div id="itemDetail_Image">

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

                </div>

                <br />

                <h2 id="itemDetail_Title">B-3410</h2>

                <div id="itemDetail_Text">Samsung Corby B-3410 with QWERTY Keypad and Touch Screen</div>

            </div>

            <div id="listView3"

                class="win-selectionstylefilled"

                data-win-control="WinJS.UI.ListView"

                data-win-options="{

                    itemDataSource: myCommentData.dataSource,

                    itemTemplate: commentsTemplate,

                    selectionMode: 'none',

                    tapBehavior: 'none',

                    swipeBehavior: 'none',

                    layout: { type: WinJS.UI.ListLayout }

                }"

            ></div>

        </div>

    </div>

</body>

</html> 


Write the following code in script.js:
 

var myCommentData = new WinJS.Binding.List([

        { title: "The SAMSUNG CORBY B-3410", text: "This is Slider Phone With QWERTY Keypad and Tuch Scrin Features" },

        { title: "Camera", text: "Samsung Provide 2 MP camera in This Hand set" },

        { title: "Memory'", text: "Samsung Provide 2 GB MEMORY CARD WITH THIS HAND SET" }       

]);

 

(function () {

    "use strict";

    var page = WinJS.UI.Pages.define("page.html", {

        ready: function (element, options) {

            element.querySelector("#listView3").winControl.forceLayout();

        }

    });

})();
