Navigation in an application can be done in a pre-determined linear sequence, a user driven path through hierarchy or a dynamically generated path.

Navigation can be performed using the following methods:

  • Using Navigate method
  • Navigate method in the Navigation service can be used to navigate to a page in the application.

           //Navigate using URI.
    this.NavigationService.Navigate(new Uri('mypage.xaml', UriKind.Relative));
          //Navigate to an instance of a page.
              mypage newpage = new mypage();
  • Using Hyperlinks
  • “NavigateUri” property of Hyperlink markup extension can be used to open a page using hyperlink.

          	<Hyperlink NavigateUri='mypage.xaml'>New Page</Hyperlink>
  • Using the journal
  • Both navigation containers have a journal that records navigation history like a web browser. The journal maintains two stacks for ’Back’ and ’Forward’ stacks to record navigation.


    XBAP applications are cached when you run for the first time. In order to give maximum performance, subsequent requests run the application from the cache until the version number of the application is changed. Therefore, if you make any changes to the code, re-compile and then run it and you don’t see any changes to the result or if you get the application deployment error, run the ‘mage-cc’ command from the Visual Studio Command Prompt and try running the application again.


    No. An XAML Browser application works only on Windows and requires .NET Framework 3.0 or a later version to be installed. It can be hosted in Internet Explorer or in any other browser that hosts the Microsoft WebBrowser ActiveX control.
