Methods

  NameDescription
ActivateView
Navigates to a view (makes it current and activates it) even if it is already known to be current.
Equals
Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Finalize
Allows an Object to attempt to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
GetController
It is the navigator's job to maintain all controllers within a task. GetController method returns a controller for a specific view.
GetHashCode
Serves as a hash function for a particular type. GetHashCode()()() is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.
(Inherited from Object.)
GetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)

(Inherited from Object.)
Navigate
Navigates to a next view by a given navigation trigger name.

Navigates directly to the desired view, regardless of possible navigation routes.
ToString

(Inherited from Object.)
TryNavigateToView
Activates the desired view if the navigation is possible, otherwise activates the current view.

This method is used by views managers when an end-user manually activates some view (clicks on a form). In this case calling TryNavigateToView(...) will return him to the previous view if the navigation is impossible.
