  • Create a Xamarin Navigation in C#.

Xamarin Navigation

  1. Create a new solution in Xamarin.Forms Portable (PCL).

  2. We’ll have the environment, given below-

    environment

  3. Add the Main page.

    Right click on the name of the project portable ---> add new item -> Cross Platform ---> Code---> Forms Content Page (name it as Main Page).

    Main Page

  4. Add the second page.

    Right click on the name of the project portable --> add new item ---> Cross Platform ---> Code ---> Forms Content Page (name it as Second Page).

  5. Now, we are ready to write the code. First of all, we’ll rewrite the App.cs code with the code, given below-
    1. using System;  
    2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
    3. using System.Linq;  
    4. using System.Text;  
    5. using Xamarin.Forms;  
    6. namespace Booster2 {  
    7.     public class App: Application {  
    8.         public App() {  
    9.             MainPage = new NavigationPage(new MainPage()); {};  
    10.         }  
    11.         protected override void OnStart() {}  
    12.         protected override void OnSleep() {}  
    13.         protected override void OnResume() {}  
    14.     }  
    15. }  
    1. Now, we are going to write the code at the backend for both Main and Second Page. 

    Main Page
    1. using System;  
    2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
    3. using System.Linq;  
    4. using System.Reflection.Emit;  
    5. using System.Text;  
    6. using Xamarin.Forms;  
    7. namespace Booster2 {  
    8.     public class MainPage: ContentPage {  
    9.         public MainPage() {  
    10.             Title = "Main Page";  
    11.             Button changePage = new Button {  
    12.                 Text = "Change Page Test",  
    13.                     HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,  
    14.                     VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand  
    15.             };  
    16.             changePage.Clicked += async(sender, args) => {  
    17.                 await Navigation.PushAsync(new SecondPage());  
    18.             };  
    19.             Content = new StackLayout {  
    20.                 Children = {  
    21.                     changePage  
    22.                 }  
    23.             };  
    24.         }  
    25.     }  
    26. }  
    Second Page
    1. using System;  
    2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
    3. using System.Linq;  
    4. using System.Reflection.Emit;  
    5. using System.Text;  
    6. using Xamarin.Forms;  
    7. namespace Booster2 {  
    8.     public class SecondPage: ContentPage {  
    9.         public SecondPage() {  
    10.             Content = new StackLayout {  
    11.                 Children = {  
    12.                     new Label {  
    13.                         Text = "Hi. I'm the Second Page"  
    14.                     }  
    15.                 }  
    16.             };  
    17.         }  
    18.     }  
    19. }  

Now, if we work well, we’ll have, after the deployment (CTRL+5), the outputs are given below-
