I was searching for a global way to handle the KeyDown or KeyUp event for an entire Page in a Modern UI app.
Fortunately, I found a nice thing, it's possible to handle the KeyDown/KeyUp event for the whole page by subscribing to the events:
Window.Current.CoreWindow.KeyDown += CoreWindow_KeyDown;
Window.Current.CoreWindow.KeyUp += CoreWindow_KeyUp;
This is also very useful for my new game :)
I found a very usefull metro icons pack.
