UnivApp W10 OnNavigatedTo no suitable method found to override

    Question

  • Trying to add background task to W10 UnivApp from App Studio to update Live Tile from RSS feed from the background task.  I get the 'no suitable method found to override for the OnNavigatedTo

                    protected override void OnNavigatedTo(NavigationEventArgs e)
                    {
                        RegisterBackgroundTask();
                    }

    I'm using the quickstart from MSDN to add this. Is this not supported in W10?

  • Hi Tony,

    We need more data to look into this issue further.

    Can you please let us know which class you are overwritting OnNavigatedTo?

    The OnNavigatedTo can only be overwritten in Page classes.

    Thanks.

  • I was hitting this same issue and eventually figured out my file was missing the "using Windows.UI.Xaml.Navigation;" statement.  Adding that to the top of the file fixed it for me.
