How to make a button transfer to another page in Visual Basic (WPF) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I'm trying to make a button in the Mainwindow (which I called Wilton) to transfer the user to another page (which I called page1). 

    I've seen how to do it in C#, but I want to make this in Visual Basic. What code should I use?

  • Hello,

    A Response.Redirect is very much a method of old HTML web creating

    Pages are as well something about that. In old VB persons were always talking about Forms, that still is an important presentation way of VB. But with VB you can currently do more. However, nowhere really related to what you write. 

    It seams you use Windows Forms, than if you have created more forms the normal command would be. 

    Construct the form and then show it preferable with

    >>I'm trying to make a button in the Mainwindow (which I called Wilton) to transfer to another page (which I called page1).

    Based on your description, I'm not sure what is another page, is it a web page, or a winform form windows? Could you please describe it in detail.

    Best Regards,

  • I'm not great at describing things, let alone in detail lol. So, I wanna make a separate page for this Kiosk I'm making that has links that will open up PDF files (which is another beast that I have to tackle), so I went to Project>Add page at the top of the screen, and it came up. So I created a button in the MainWindow that is labeled "Documents" (Which is what I'm trying to get to direct to page1) and a big red button on page1 that says "Button" (which will be the button that opens PDFs). Again, I apologize that I'm not a very descriptive person.

  • OK, so you are working on a WPF project. There is a forum where they should be able to help. If a moderator does not move this thread you can re-post to the WPF forum:
