By default, a Frame shows its navigation UI automatically when the first entry is added to navigation history. The navigation UI subsequently remains visible, with the back or forward navigation buttons becoming appropriately enabled or disabled to reflect the number of entries in back and forward navigation history.

You can ensure that navigation UI is always visible by setting:

  1. NavigationUIVisibility to Visible

  2. JournalOwnership to OwnsJournal

You set NavigationUIVisibility to Hidden if you want to hide the navigation UI. This might be the case when navigation UI doesn’t make sense with the content you are displaying from a Frame, or because you are providing your own navigation UI.

The following example demonstrates how to make sure the navigation chrome of a Frame is always visible by setting NavigationUIVisibility to Visible.

this.hostFrame.NavigationUIVisibility = NavigationUIVisibility.Visible;
<Frame Name="hostFrame" NavigationUIVisibility="Visible"/>

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
