The OnFragmentNavigation method is called when navigating to a uniform resource identifier (URI) that includes a fragment. A fragment is the value after the fragment delimiter (#). For example, when navigating within a frame, the URI /Views/AboutPage.xaml#contact specifies to navigate to the Silverlight page located at /Views/AboutPage.xaml and pass a fragment value of contact. You override the OnFragmentNavigation method to perform any actions when responding to a navigation request that includes a fragment.

Generally, use the OnFragmentNavigation method instead of creating an event handler for the FragmentNavigation event.
