A NavigationMode enumerator value that specifies the current navigation’s direction.

Available values:

Name Description

Indicates that an end-user navigates to the newly created container.


Indicates that an end-user navigates from the current container to its parent container. The opposite of the NavigationMode.Forward value.


Indicates that an end-user navigates from a parent container to its child container (e.g., from a TileContainer to its TileContainer.ActivationTarget).


Indicates that the current navigation occurs within the single container (e.g., navigating through Documents within a PageGroup).


The WindowsUIView.NavigatedFrom and WindowsUIView.NavigatedTo events can occur when an end-user navigates through different containers, or within a single container, or to a newly created container. In each of these cases, the NavigationMode property marks navigation events with different direction values.
