Windows Phone 8.1 apps - Opening another page RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have 2 pages. MainPage has a Textbox which is Collapsed by default. 

    1. MainPage

    2. LoginPage

    When i go to the  "MainPage.Xaml"  from the "Login.Xaml".  I change the value of the Textbox to Visible via a button click.

    Everything is fine. But, after going back to "LoginPage.Xaml" from the "MainPage.Xaml". 

    I tried to go back to the "MainPage.xaml" via this code


    When i land on the "Mainpage". Everything looks like the way  i left it. The visibility value of the textbox was Visible. But it should be Collapsed because that was the default value i set it to in my XAML design. My understanding was that, when you navigate to a page it creates a new instant of that page. Not bring back the old instant you were working with.

    Whats going on here? How can i fix it?

  • See Caching a  page and check your Page's NavigationCacheMode property

    You can also initialize items in OnNavigatedTo if you want to set them separately.
