Building a Xamarin Forms UI - Navigation course explains how to implement basic content page navigation using Xamarin Forms NavigationPage class. We take the app from the Building a Xamarin Forms UI - Layout Containers course and add navigation to button click events allowing us to move between pages.

Transcript

Xamarin forms implement stacked-based navigation through a navigation page class which has methods for pushing and popping pages of an internally maintained navigation stack. The push and pop methods are asynchronous and are available in a modal variant. There is also a pop to root method that clears the stack of all pages except the root or main page, returning the user to the home page.

 

My name is Hallam Webber, and this has been an overview of Xamarin Forms navigation functionality. Please join me in the next Xamarin Forms course, where I'll look at how Resources can simplify and streamline complex UI customization and formatting.
