NavigationBar provides a facility for navigating through different panes of data.
This elegant concept was introduced in Outlook, and NavigationBar implements many of the features found in Office.
Much like a tab control, any number of panes can be added to the NavigationBar, but only one can be selected at a time.
The content of the selected pane is presented in the main area or popup of the NavigationBar.

If screen real estate is available, large buttons can be used for pane selection.
The end-user has the option of using a splitter to move the large buttons into the overflow button tray, which uses smaller buttons.
If not all of the buttons can fit in that tray, they flow out into the overflow menu, accessible by the chevron button.
Recognizable images of varying sizes can be easily associated with each pane, allowing end-users to quickly find the correct pane no matter where it's located.
A customization menu can optionally be displayed in the overflow button area of the NavigationBar.
Using this menu, the end-user can interactively show or hide the buttons for the various panes, which is useful in reducing possible clutter.
The customization menu is populated with default menu items, but items can be easily added or removed based on your needs.
A built-in Options window comes packaged with NavigationBar, that allows the user to reorder the navigation pane buttons.
Navigation pane buttons can also be shown or hidden by checking and unchecking the items in the list, respectively.
The visibility and sort order can be reset back to defaults by clicking the Reset button.
