An Object that contains the content to navigate to.


A Object that contains data to be used for processing during navigation.

Return Value

A Boolean value that is set to true if a navigation is not canceled; otherwise, false.

This method has the same behavior as NavigationService.Navigate, although an object is passed instead of a URI.

The following example shows how to navigate to a Page object containing the source content, and passing navigation state.

void goButton_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    this.NavigationService.Navigate(new ContentPage(), DateTime.Now);
void NavigationService_LoadCompleted(object sender, NavigationEventArgs e)
    DateTime requestDateTime = (DateTime)e.ExtraData;
    string msg = string.Format("Request started {0}\nRequest completed {1}", requestDateTime, DateTime.Now);
