The following example shows how to handle Navigating to detect whether a request to refresh static content was made, and if one was, how to cancel the request.


void NavigationService_Navigating(object sender, NavigatingCancelEventArgs e)
    // Don't allow refreshing of a static page
    if ((e.NavigationMode == NavigationMode.Refresh) &&
        (e.Uri.OriginalString == "StaticPage.xaml"))
        e.Cancel = true;
Private Sub NavigationService_Navigating(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As NavigatingCancelEventArgs)
    ' Don't allow refreshing of a static page
    If (e.NavigationMode = NavigationMode.Refresh) AndAlso (e.Uri.OriginalString = "StaticPage.xaml") Then
        e.Cancel = True
    End If
End Sub


These event arguments contain information about the navigation that was requested, and are passed to handlers of the Navigating event, which is implemented by the following:

NavigatingCancelEventArgs encapsulates the following details of the navigation request:

This information allows you to both evaluate the nature of the navigation request, and view and update specified request details before navigation occurs.

Based on the navigation request information provided by NavigatingCancelEventArgs, or based on application-specific state or code, you can completely prevent navigation by setting the Cancel property to true (by default, Cancel is false).
