How to: Programmatically create a NavBarControl with groups and items

This example demonstrates how the NavBarControl can be created and customized programmatically (in a code-behind file).In this sample, two groups are created within the NavBarControl: the first group contains three items; the second group's content is represented by a StackPanel holding two TextBlock controls. The second TextBlock displays the text of the selected item within the NavBarControl.The ItemSelecting event of the NavBarControl is handled to invoke a confirmation dialog allowing the selection of the first group's third item to be canceled.
