Page navigation in windows phone 8.1 application not working.

Hi - thanks for looking!

I am trying to do something that should be very simple but is proving difficult!
I am trying to navigate from one page to another in my windows phone 8.1 application.

I have tried 2 different methods but neither work - see screenshot.

Any ideas?

can't see the screenshot, but what you're looking for is the following


TopicPage is the actual class name of the view (page) you're trying to navigate to, you'll also have to include the namespace of the page

do you have a navigation service?

try what i recommended above


you'll have to include some using statements

Sorry - I am new to WP dev.

What do you mean do I have the naivigation service?

Which using statements do i need?

Currently I am using:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.IO;
using System.Linq;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime;
using Windows.Foundation;
using Windows.Foundation.Collections;
using Windows.Storage.Pickers.Provider;
using Windows.UI.Xaml;
using Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls;
using Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls.Primitives;
using Windows.UI.Xaml.Data;
using Windows.UI.Xaml.Input;
using Windows.UI.Xaml.Media;
using Windows.UI.Xaml.Navigation;
PawełI Design & Develop SoftwareCommented:
you have to add
using Windows.UI.Xaml;

and the namespace for you views folder something like

using QRReader.Views;

and that should get your navigation working.

a navigation service is a class that you would write or leverage from a framework that would encapsulate all the things required for navigation here's one that i use from template 10

anyway that's probably a bit much for someone just getting stared. I recommend going through the following
