Navigation Capabilities in Silverlight


Much like a regular HTML application, a Silverlight application can be structured as a set of pages with navigation links between them. This allows not only for navigation within the Silverlight content but also for applications to surface their inner content via hyperlinks in just the same way as any other web content.

This takes away the usual "black box" approach of a plug-in based app and opens up the ability for making Silverlight content open to indexing by search engines. In this video, we’ll take a look at putting together a simple navigation application and how the framework supports navigation applications.
