Quickstart Example


<aurora:BannerView x:Name="bannerView" BannerIsVisible="true">
        <!-- Add Banner Content View Here -->
        <!-- Add Primary Content View Here -->


var bannerView = new BannerView 
    BannerIsVisible = true,
    BannerContent = // Add banner content here
    Content = // Add Primary content here


By default, your banner control will be docked at the top of the view or BannerDockSide.Top. You can specify which side of the view your banner will reveal from by setting the Dockside property using one of the following available options:

public enum BannerDockSide {

You can easily reassign your banner's docking side at any time by setting the Dockside propery in code.

bannerView.DockSide = Aurora.Controls.BannerView.BannerDockSide.Left;
