Navigating between pages (HTML)
[ This article is for Windows 8.x and Windows Phone 8.x developers writing Windows Runtime apps. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation ]
Learn how to support navigation between pages and content within your app.
In contrast, a single-page navigation model uses a single page to maintain app context and to load additional data and content as needed. You still split your app into multiple files, but instead of moving from page to page, your app loads other documents into the main page. Because your app's main page is never unloaded, your scripts are never unloaded and so it's easier to manage state, transitions, or animations. We recommend that apps use the single-page navigation model.
For help choosing the best navigation pattern for your app, see Navigation patterns.
