[C++][XAML] this->Frame->Navigate problem C++ XAML RRS feed

  • Question

  • The above code does not work. When I debug the app. it's for page navigation.

     The errors appear:

    name followed by  :: must be a class or namespace name

    c2653 - MainPage1 is not a class or namespace name

    c2059 - syntax error

    Tried both of this:


    this->frame->navigate(MainPage::typeid , this);

  • Hello XtremeDevelopers,

    Since you are using C++/CX, where you'll need to create a TypeName helper struct, you can use the typeid as below:


    Also, do not forget to add the reference to the new page as below in page you would navigate from or it would detect the new page type and throw compile errors:

    #include "BlankPage.xaml.h"

    For other scenarios about using the Navigation, you could check the XAML Navigation sample, download the C++ sample.
