    <Hyperlink Name="callPageFunctionHyperlink" Click="callPageFunctionHyperlink_Click">Call Page Function</Hyperlink>
</Page>
void callPageFunctionAndReturnHyperlink_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    // Call a page function and hook up page function's return event to get result
    GetStringPageFunction pageFunction = new GetStringPageFunction();
    pageFunction.Return += new ReturnEventHandler<String>(GetStringPageFunction_Returned);
    this.NavigationService.Navigate(pageFunction);
}
void GetStringPageFunction_Returned(object sender, ReturnEventArgs<String> e)
{
    // Get the result, if a result was passed. 
    if (e.Result != null)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(e.Result);
    }
}
