This compact and concise Windows Vista®-style address bar is a step ahead on the evolutionary ladder.
Mimic the Windows 7 Explorer navigation bar: the sequence of steps that make up the user's location is visible on a single line.
Associate each location with its own location image, shown at the leftmost edge of the WinNavigationBar.
Access child locations randomly, using the implicit drop down button beside each location.
At the rightmost edge of the WinNavigationBar is a drop-down history of previously-visited locations.
Like a toolbar control, you can add functional buttons to the WinNavigationBar.
Display switches into an editable navigation path, allowing the user to quickly reach a location by typing in its path.
