How to set CommandBar / AppBar to be always open

I searched for a way, to set a commandBar (in a Windows Metro App) to be always open. But I couldn't find anything. Has anyone an idea?


If you don't want it to ever close - simply use some Panel instead of the AppBar. If you use the CommandBar and utilize its infrastructure that automatically switches IsCompact property of the buttons - you could also try to handle the Closed event and set IsOpen to true. Also set IsSticky to true so you can use the rest of the UI.
