Windows Phone Development navigate to another page

Hi all,
I'm trying to simply navigate to another page.
This is WP8.1 OS, Visual Studio 2013

The code referenced available is the following....
Me.Frame.Navigate(TypeOf (page_sf))

The compilier is telling me that I need "IS" after this; but no other examples found reference this approach, and I don't know what it wants after the "IS"

Me.Frame.Navigate(TypeOf (page_sf) Is )

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello

why do use this TypeOf pattern? The standard call is:
Private Sub HyperlinkButton_Click(sender As Object, e As RoutedEventArgs)
	Me.Frame.Navigate(GetType(page_sf))
End Sub	

Open in new window


See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/xaml/hh771188.aspx?cs-save-lang=1&cs-lang=vb#code-snippet-6

TypeOf is used for comparison of types whereas GetType returns an object: http://blogs.msmvps.com/joacim/2009/08/31/gettype-and-typeof-confusion/

OMG, you are correct.  I didn't even think of that.
I'm finding code available in C# more readily then in VB and my conversion ability is new.
thanks, again.
