  • Hi,

    Navigation Framework is much more easier to manage.

    But it depends on what kind of application you are developing.

  • Hi,

    Do you want to instantiate a UserControl based on a string.
    Like you have Products So i will instantiate "Products.xaml"
    For this you can use Activator.CreateInstance("Products")

  • depending on how you are trying to do things if you just have a content presenter besides your accordion control with a name then you can just in the click event for a give button set it to a new instance of the control you would like

    OnProductClick(object sender,RoutedEventArgs e)
      _myContent = new Products();

  • Where do you want to put this UserControl? You need to creat this UserControl then add it to the VisualTree.

    Say you have a Grid called "container" as a placeholder for this control in your page:

    Products p = new Products();

  • thanks, that works but i found something else.

    What do you think about the Navigation Framework and the uri mapper. Which solution is better ??

    i mean this:

        xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008" xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-compatibility/2006" 
        mc:Ignorable="d" d:DesignWidth="640" d:DesignHeight="480">
      <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Style="{StaticResource LayoutRootGridStyle}">
        <Border x:Name="ContentBorder" Style="{StaticResource ContentBorderStyle}">
          <navigation:Frame x:Name="ContentFrame" Style="{StaticResource ContentFrameStyle}" 
                                  Source="/Home" Navigated="ContentFrame_Navigated" NavigationFailed="ContentFrame_NavigationFailed">
                <uriMapper:UriMapping Uri="" MappedUri="/Views/Home.xaml"/>
                <uriMapper:UriMapping Uri="/{pageName}" MappedUri="/Views/{pageName}.xaml"/>
        <Grid x:Name="NavigationGrid" Style="{StaticResource NavigationGridStyle}">
          <Border x:Name="BrandingBorder" Style="{StaticResource BrandingBorderStyle}">
            <StackPanel x:Name="BrandingStackPanel" Style="{StaticResource BrandingStackPanelStyle}">
              <ContentControl Style="{StaticResource LogoIcon}"/>
              <TextBlock x:Name="ApplicationNameTextBlock" Style="{StaticResource ApplicationNameStyle}" 
          <Border x:Name="LinksBorder" Style="{StaticResource LinksBorderStyle}">
            <StackPanel x:Name="LinksStackPanel" Style="{StaticResource LinksStackPanelStyle}">
              <HyperlinkButton x:Name="Link1" Style="{StaticResource LinkStyle}" 
                                         NavigateUri="/Home" TargetName="ContentFrame" Content="Startseite"/>
              <Rectangle x:Name="Divider1" Style="{StaticResource DividerStyle}"/>
              <HyperlinkButton x:Name="Link2" Style="{StaticResource LinkStyle}" 
                                         NavigateUri="/About" TargetName="ContentFrame" Content="Info"/>

  • Navigation framework sounds like it would probably work well for your needs.
