Hub control makes it easy for you to follow the popular hub design pattern used by MSN apps such as News, Sports, Finance, and Travel. Such apps have a horizontally scrolling landing page with many independent sections. The first section typically has a big image (called a hero image) as its background, and the subsequent sections are typically diverse content with links to other pages.
Hub has a
Header that can be arbitrary content, although it is typically set to a simple string matching the app’s name and a collection of
HubSection controls (each with its own
Header) that are stacked horizontally by default. Figure 14.6 shows the following
Hub in action:
