Navigation behaviors

Expression Studio 4.0

In Microsoft Expression Blend, you can use navigation behaviors to help define navigation.

Expression Blend navigation behaviors

The following navigation behaviors are available in Expression Blend:

  • HyperlinkAction   Use the HyperlinkAction action to easily browse to a website address when the behavior is triggered.

    For more information about this action, see HyperlinkAction.

  • LaunchUriOrFileAction   Use the LaunchUriOrFileAction action to browse to a website or start an application when the action is triggered.

    For more information about this action, see LaunchUriOrFileAction.

SketchFlow navigation behaviors

In SketchFlow, you can use navigation behaviors to navigate through the site by following a path other than what the prototype designer may have specified. You can also easily add Back and Forward navigation by using behaviors.

The following navigation behaviors are available in SketchFlow:

  • NavigateBackAction   Use the NavigateBackAction action to navigate back to a screen that you were previously viewing. The NavigateBackAction action functions in the same way as the Back button in the SketchFlow Player.

    For more information about this action, see NavigateBackAction.

  • NavigateForwardAction   Use the NavigateForwardAction action to navigate forward to a screen that you were viewing before navigating back to a previous screen. The NavigateForwardAction action functions in the same way as the Forward button in the SketchFlow Player.

    For more information about this action, see NavigateForwardAction.

  • NavigationMenuAction   Use the NavigationMenuAction action to associate a particular state with a particular screen. This is particularly useful if you are trying to mimic user navigation while preserving the navigation path and visual states that represent the user's interaction with a navigation menu.

    For more information about this action, see NavigationMenuAction.

  • NavigateToScreenAction   Use the NavigateToScreenAction action to specify navigation between screens.

    For more information about this action, see NavigateToScreenAction.

NoteNote

You can use all the behaviors in available in Expression Blend in SketchFlow projects. However, SketchFlow behaviors are available only in SketchFlow projects.
