General-purpose navigation container with on-demand instantiation and recycling of pages.
Note: It is recommended that you first read the Navigation guide for a full overview of Fuse's navigation system.
Navigator takes a collection of templates as its children.
This allows it to instantiate and recycle pages as it needs.
You can declare a node as a template by specifying the
ux:Template attribute. The path of the route is matched to the
ux:Template value to select a template.
You can read more about templates here.
Non-template pages can also be used. The
Name of the page will be used to match the path:
These pages always just have the one instance, will always be reused, and will never be removed. Otherwise they function the same as the template pages.
Here are some general rules that will you help decide whether you want to use a template or non-template page:
- If you need transitions between pages with the same path, but different parameter, then use a template.
- If you have pages that impact performance even when inactive, or for other reasons should be removed when unused, then use a template.
- If you have a page that should always exist to preserve state, or is very frequently navigated to, use a non-template.
Note that templates and non-templates can be mixed within one
To have complete control over page transitions use the PageView class. It works just like a
Navigator but has no standard transitions or state changes.
When using custom transitions be sure to add a ReleasePage action. This instructs the
PageView on when it can reuse, discard, or add the page to its cache.
Navigator uses discrete page progress changes while navigating. The active page will have progress
0. If a page is pushed it will start at
1 and be switched immediately to
0. The previously active page will become
-1. A "back" operation will reverse the transition.
1 are used. Further distance is not calculated, nor are partial values possible.

Begins removing a given visual, playing all RemovedAnimations before actual removal.
Requests that this visual be brought into the visible are of the screen. Typically a containing
ScrollView will scroll to ensure it is visible.
Brings the given child to the front of the Z-order. In UX markup, use the BringToFront trigger action instead.
ChildCount : int uno
The number of child nodes of this visual.
Children : IList of Node ux
The children of the visual. All nodes placed inside the visual in UX markup are assigned to this list. The order of Visuals this list determines the order of layout. The Z-order of the children is by default equal to this order, but can be manipulated separately using methods like BringToFront and SendToBack.

FindViewport : IViewport uno
FirstChild<T> : T uno
GetZOrderChild(int) : Visual uno

HitTestBounds : VisualBounds uno
IfSnap(float2) : float2 uno
IfSnapDown(float2) : float2 uno
IfSnapUp(float2) : float2 uno
Indicates the visual for this node has changed. This allows the root-level node to know that it must draw, and any caching that it must invalidate the cache for this node.
Indicates the composition of the visual has changed, but that the visual drawing itself is still valid (for example a position change).
IsContextEnabled : bool uno
Whether this node is in an enabled context.
The context is disabled if one of the ancestor nodes have IsEnabled set to
IsInteracting : bool uno
IsLocalVisible : bool uno
Returns whether this visual is visible without concern for whether an ancestor visual is hidden or collapsed.
Returns whether this visual is currently visible. Will return false if any of the ancestor visuals are hidden or collapsed. This property can not be used to check whether a visual is hidden because it is occluded by another visual, or is outside the view but otherwise visible.
LastChild<T> : T uno
The layer this visual belongs to in the Parent container.

Describes how this visual participates in layout.

The context parent is the semantic parent of this node. It is where non-UI structure should be resolved, like looking for the DataContext, a Navigation, or other semantic item.
FindByType<T> : T uno
Finds the first node with a given name that satisfies the given acceptor. The serach algorithm works as follows: Nodes in the subtree are matched first, then it matches the nodes in the subtrees ofthe ancestor nodes by turn all the way to the root. If no matching node is found, the function returns null.
GetNearestAncestorOfType<T> : T uno
IsRootingCompleted : bool uno
Whether rooting for this node is completed. Returns false if unrooting has started.
IsRootingStarted : bool uno
Whether rooting of this node has started. Note that even if this property returns true, rooting may not yet be completed for the node. See also IsRootingCompleted.
Run-time name of the node. This property is automatically set using the ux:Name attribute.
NextSibling<T> : T uno
Returns the next sibling node of the given type.
If you override
OnRooted you must call
base.OnRooted() first in your derived class. No other processing should happen first, otherwise you might end up in an undefined state.
