  • three types of pages, each with its own mark-up and set of features;
  • embedded wizard buttons;
  • various page templates;

The WPF Hamburger Menu is used to implement the navigation UI that emulates popular web applications. Its features include:

  • adaptive layout;
  • different types of navigation items: regular, check and radio buttons, and hyperlinks;
  • sub menus displaying items in side panels and "favorite" items directly in the main menu;
  • MVVM Support.
