Navigating to multiple pages using hyperlink button and frame element


  • Hi!

    I  am new to blend and silverlight. In my web application, I have a mainpage.xaml which has 4 hyperlink buttons pointing to 4 different pages. and I have a frame element to load these pages when the hyperlink buttons are clicked.   In the hyperlink element i have given the targetname as the frame element name. To the frame element i have loaded the default source as home.xaml page . When i run the application the frame is loading the the home.xaml page but when i click on the other hyperlink buttons on the main page, those are not getting loaded.

    Below is my code and i dont know where I am going wrong. Can you please help me ????

  • Hi,

      I tried running your code. It was working correctly. The only change i did was to remove the    Style="{StaticResource HyperlinkArthaButn}"   as i didnt have the code for that.

    Now if it still doesn't work for you, check the steps.

    1) I copied your code into the mainpage.xaml of a new project called ArthaProject1. 

    2) I added 4 new Silverlight pages (note: Not Silverlight user controls, just Silverlight pages) with the names ContactUs,Home,Networking,Services  .

    3) I put some dummy content into these pages by dragging textboxes and stuff  ( just to see whether they are updating or not )

    4) Ran the project. It is working fine and navigating between the pages

    Hope it Helps Laughing
