  • hello, can i ask you a question?

    i made two silverlight project.(page1.xaml and page2.xaml)

    i want to have a connect between the two pages. when i click the page1.xaml's control then connect to the page2.xaml.

    can you tell me the method? i think there has a simply method about this. like "Link" in asp.net.

  • Hello!
    I don't precilsely understand what you mean for connect...anyway I guess you can define page1 and page2 as usercontrols , then you can create a page.xaml where you add the two usercontrols page1 and page2. Then when you click une control you can set the visibility of the second one as you like.

    You can even pass parameters. I usually define a Show(<some parameter>) method for my controls...


    in your case when you click a button inside page1 (for example) you can do:



    hope this helps you. I'm here :)

  • Ok,
     in the click event handler of button1 :


    page1.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;

    page2.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed;


    and  in the click event handler of button2 :


    page1.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed;

    page2.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;


     If it doen't helps you thell me more.

  • i'm sorry.

    i can't find the page1.Visibility, only can find the page1.VisibilityProperty.

    so sorry for troubling you so much.

  • Don't worry, no trouble...

    So, that's strange.. I put here a working UserControl example where you can find the Visibility in the code behind...

    Make sure to add that user control correctly in your page.xaml (in this case add xmlns:my="clr-namespace:Silverlight")

     Let me know...




    <UserControl x:Class="Silverlight.DialogBox"




    <Rectangle HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Opacity="0.3" Fill="Gray" />

    <Border Width="550" Height="150" CornerRadius="5" Background="White" VerticalAlignment="Top" Margin="0,250,0,0" >

    <Grid ShowGridLines="False">


    <RowDefinition Height="40"/>

    <RowDefinition Height="*"/>

    <RowDefinition Height="20"/>



    <ColumnDefinition Width="50"/>

    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />

    <ColumnDefinition Width="50" />


    <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1">

    <TextBlock x:Name="tbTitle" Margin="10,10,10,10" Foreground="Black" FontFamily="Arial" FontSize="16"/>


    <Button x:Name="btnClose" Content="x" Click="btnClose_Click" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="2" Margin="5,5,5,5" />

    <ScrollViewer Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="3">

    <TextBlock x:Name="tbMessage" Margin="10,10,10,10" TextWrapping="Wrap" Foreground="Black"/>







    using System;

    using System.Collections.Generic;

    using System.Linq;

    using System.Net;

    using System.Windows;

    using System.Windows.Controls;

    using System.Windows.Documents;

    using System.Windows.Input;

    using System.Windows.Media;

    using System.Windows.Media.Animation;

    using System.Windows.Shapes;

    namespace Silverlight


    public partial class DialogBox : UserControl


    public DialogBox()




    private void btnClose_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


    Visibility =


    public void Show(string title, string message)


    tbTitle.Text = title;

    tbMessage.Text = message;

    Visibility =

  • i can't understand also.

    i only  want to have a connection with the Page.xaml,Page1.xaml,Page2.xaml that are in the same silverlight project.

    in the Page.xaml

        <UserControl x:Class="SilverlightApplication11.Page"
      Width="400" Height="300"  >
        <Grid  Background="White">
            <StackPanel >
                <TextBlock x:Name="text1" Text="the first page" FontSize="24" MouseLeftButtonDown="text1_MouseLeftButtonDown"/>
                <TextBlock x:Name="text2" Text="the second page" FontSize="24" MouseLeftButtonDown="text2_MouseLeftButtonDown"/>

     and in the Event of text1_MouseLeftButtonDown,i want to connect to the Page1.xaml,

    and in  the Event of text2_MouseLeftButtonDown,i want to connect to the Page2.xaml.

    how i can do this?

  • if you add to the code you sent me the two user control (page1 and page2) and for example in and in the Event of text1_MouseLeftButtonDown you set the visibility for page1, page2 and, further for the stackpanel you'll simply get page1 showed (like have been clickking a link).

    I think this could be a solution.

  • i wrote that in the event but i got the error that can't find the page1 or page2 in page.xaml.

    can you write the code for me?

    and i thought another method

    i can change the start page in app.xaml.cs.

    but i also don't know the code about how i can change it in the event.
