Property Value

Type Description
NavigationFrame

A NavigationFrame object to which the current service is associated.

Remarks

You need to set the Frame property to the NavigationFrame object that contains Views to navigate between. Otherwise, the methods provided by the FrameNavigationService will not work.

Examples

The FrameNavigationService provides methods to navigate between Views within a NavigationFrame. This example shows how to use this service. In this example, the MainWindow contains a NavigationFrame, which shows a HomeView at startup. The HomeView contains a Tile, which invokes a command to navigate to a DetailView when clicked. The DetailView contains the Back button for backward navigation.
