Metro Nuggets

Bitesized tidbits for building Modern (Metro) apps.

Address Bar and Bing Search Bar Scrolling

One of the new things I found recently whilst trying to do something on my phone was the easy way in which someone can see all of what might be in the IE9 address bar or the Bing search bar. If you have a long link in IE9 it can be very tiresome to try and get back to the beginning (or the end) of the link from within the address bar itself; the same applies to the Bing search bar.

The Solution

It’s actually very easy, although not obvious. All you do, is tap the address bar, hold your finger down and slide it left or right. I have done a quick video to show this using the Windows Phone emulator (same principle applies, just with a mouse).
