The delegate function to bind to, or unbind from, the navigate event.

When a user clicks the browser's Back button, the browser navigates through previously viewed URLs, which will include URLs that contain history state data. Client code in the Web page detects that the URL contains history state data (either server or client), and then raises the client navigate event. You can handle this event to re-create the state of the Web application.
