In Build 2013, Microsoft announced Windows 8.1. Along with this announcement, 5000 APIs will be introduced and one notable is the FlyOut control. The FlyOut Control allows the application to display temporary information to the current user interaction. The content can be informational or it can be the one that needs user input.
