Exploring WinUI Controls
WinUI 3 and the Windows App SDK offer many controls and APIs for developers building desktop applications for Windows. The WinUI controls include some controls not previously available to Windows developers, as well as updated controls that were already available in WinUI 2.x and UWP. Using these new and updated controls with WinUI 3 enables their use in older versions of Windows that did not previously support this full suite of components. Developers can also leverage Windows App SDK APIs to get direct access to Windows features.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Learning more about the controls that are available in WinUI 3
- Exploring the WinUI 3 Gallery app for Windows to learn about the WinUI controls and design guidance
- How other Windows App SDK APIs provide Windows developers access to features such as power management and notifications
