    Great tutorial…
    But TargetType=”ListViewItem” was break in VS2012 for Windows 8 with .NET v4.5 in case any body else is getting the same error place change it to TargetType=”GridViewItem”.

    Hi Jessie,

    Great work. Am a fan, with a question.

    Am currently using the gridview to display and select (swipedown) data; displayed as icons. Hooked it up to the SelectionChanged event and works well. However, when using a keyboard (on Windows 8 powered desktop), just the arrow keys fires the selectionChanged and I don’t want that. Is there a workaround here?

    Thanks in advance!

    I am currently developing a sample win 8 metro application. I’m looking for my main hub page to have multiple gridviews (3) each with it’s own datasource. I would like to have each of these gridviews in its own column with a header, however, my page doesn’t seem to horizontally scroll when I layout my page like this.

    Is it even possible to have multiple (non-grouped) gridviews on one page, or do I have to have one grouped gridview for my page to horizontally pan?

    Thanks for any insight you can provide.

    Great to see a focus on intuitive app development with the implementation of HTML5 in W8 apps.

    One undoubtedly important thing these RSS reader apps need, is; article titles in the live tiles.

    Great post.

    One thing that annoys me a bit when have working with ListViews and GridViews though, is that they tend to get really slow rendering when handling alot? of items (like > 150). I don’t know why this happens and I’m not sure that the controls are the ones to blame. I use a viewmodel that binds to the ItemSource of the control and for some reason when assigning a list of, lets say, 200 items the control takes about 3-4 secs to render.

    Another thing that I find disturbing is that both the ListView and GridView have build in styles that can’t be overridden. For example it seems impossible to remove the margin between the items unless you specify an ItemContainerStyle with negative margins to “force” the items together.

    Any reflections on this?
