NavigationFailedEventArgs Class

Provides data for the NavigationFailed event of the NavigationService class and the NavigationFailed event of the Frame class.


Namespace:  System.Windows.Navigation
Assembly:  System.Windows.Controls.Navigation (in System.Windows.Controls.Navigation.dll)

public sealed class NavigationFailedEventArgs : EventArgs

The NavigationFailedEventArgs type exposes the following members.

Public propertyExceptionGets the error from the failed navigation.
Public propertyHandledGets or sets a value that indicates whether the failure event has been handled.
Public propertyUriGets the uniform resource identifier (URI) for the content that could not be navigated to.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

You use the NavigationFailedEventArgs object to retrieve information about a navigation request that could not be completed successfully. The Handled property enables you to set whether an exception should be thrown after the event handler has been processed.

The following example shows a handler for the NavigationFailed event of the Frame class. When navigation to a page within the frame fails, a child window is displayed that contains an error message and the URI of the requested page. The code for the child window named ErrorWindow is not shown in this example, but must be included in the application for the example to work. The Handled property is set to true to indicate that the event has been handled and an exception should not be thrown.

private void ContentFrame_NavigationFailed(object sender, NavigationFailedEventArgs e)
    e.Handled = true;
    ChildWindow errorWin = new ErrorWindow(e.Uri);
