    using Windows.Foundation.Collections;
    using Windows.Graphics.Display;

            public string access_token = null;
            public MainPage()
                auth.Navigate(new Uri(""));
            void auth_Navigated(object sender, System.Windows.Navigation.NavigationEventArgs e)
            public void GetAccessTokenFromUri(string uri)
                char[] excessChars = { '=', '&' };
                string[] response = uri.Split(excessChars);
                foreach (string s in response)
                    if (s.Length == 63)
                        access_token = s;
                if (access_token != null)
                    string destination = string.Format("/Menu.xaml?access_token={0}", access_token);
                    NavigationService.Navigate(new Uri(destination, UriKind.Relative));
            protected override void OnNavigatedTo(NavigationEventArgs e)

    Error on line:

    void auth_Navigated(object sender, System.Windows.Navigation.NavigationEventArgs e)

  • Well, to begin with, you didn't declare the object "auth".

    If my reply answers your question, please mark this post as answered.

    If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
