Navigation behaviors (Blend SDK for WPF)

In Blend for Visual Studio 2012, you can use navigation behaviors to help define navigation.

The following navigation behavior is available in 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 [BlendforVS_Behaviors] [BlendWPF].

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 (Blend SDK for WPF).

  • 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 (Blend SDK for WPF).

  • 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 (Blend SDK for WPF).

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

    For more information about this action, see NavigateToScreenAction (Blend SDK for WPF).

Note Note

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