A XAML UWP Custom Control – The Expander

wpf expander

Hi All
I’ve been putting some serious work into a productivity app that I will hopefully release onto the Windows 10 store before the end of the year.
One of the key components I needed for my app is an ‘expander’, which doesn’t come as standard with the default UWP control library from Microsoft.
Therefore, I decided to crank up my Visual Studio 2015 & Blend, and knock up a nice little responsive expander to plug into my app.

Designing the Expander

As always, I have created the control as part of a Window Runtime Component, as it may end up in a control library that I am currently creating.

If you wish to grab a copy of the full source code, then its on my GitHub repository here
