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 )

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.
