Page.OnNavigatingFrom Method

Called just before a page is no longer the active page in a frame.

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

protected virtual void OnNavigatingFrom(
	NavigatingCancelEventArgs e


Type: System.Windows.Navigation.NavigatingCancelEventArgs
An object that contains the event data.

You override the OnNavigatingFrom method to perform any actions on the page just before it becomes inactive.

Typically, you can use the OnNavigatingFrom method instead of creating an event handler for the Navigating event. Using the OnNavigatingFrom method is preferable because you do not have to remove the event handler from the NavigationService object to avoid object lifetime issues.

The following example shows how to override the OnNavigatingFrom method and use the NavigatingCancelEventArgs object to determine if a child window is displayed.

public partial class About : Page
    public About()

    protected override void OnNavigatingFrom(NavigatingCancelEventArgs e)
        if (e.Uri.ToString().Contains("/Home"))
            SurveyWindow surveyChildWindow = new SurveyWindow();
