The FragmentNavigationEventArgs type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public property Fragment Gets the uniform resource identifier (URI) fragment.



  Name Description
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)



The FragmentNavigationEventArgs class provides data 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. Fragment values are typically used to request that the page be displayed in a particular state.

You access the FragmentNavigationEventArgs object either by overriding the OnFragmentNavigation method or by handling the FragmentNavigation event. The FragmentNavigation event is raised or the OnFragmentNavigation method is called when navigating to a new fragment in the current content or navigating to a fragment in new content.

The Fragment property contains the value of the URI fragment in a navigation request.
