After getting my current laptop (a few years ago now), I immediately installed Ubuntu. I have been using Ubuntu for a really long time, and had no real desire to use Windows. More recently though, there have been a few instances where I have wanted to make use of Windows, and simply running in VirtualBox […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I had a requirement to change the navigation animation moving from one view to another in a recent project – based on the newly loaded view being a kind-of external tool in the context of the app I was developing.
