Summary: In this video, we start discussing navigation. After all the Silverlight application is in a browser and we need the ability to navigate between pages. To do so in our example, we will create a standard navigation application. This application will contain a Views folder with couple of sample pages (About.xaml and Home.xaml). In the MainPage.xaml we will have links to navigate to these pages. To create the links we need a HyperLinkButton. We set the NagivateUri property to specify the page we need to navigate to. We can navigate to pages in the same project, pages in other web sites, or pages in other assemblies. For this video, we will mostly go through the code generated for us to learn more about creating pages and being able to navigate to them. We will also see how we can put the styles in a separate file and reference that style within our code.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
