Hi there,

I could managed to download two separate XAP application into one main Shell application and I can download both on demand by two menu item.

However, each downloaded XAP application has got its own Navigation screen so that I can navigate in between different Views. I am unable to find the way of doing it through Prism?

I've followed on what has mentioned here:


I've also gone through with the sample Navigation\Silverlight\RegionNavigation but it is not something I am looking after because I need to support Internet Explorer Back and Forward buttons.

Any suggestions, please?

Hi Amit,

There is no guidance on this topic in Prism out-of-the-box. Therefore, I would recommend to you take a look at the Silverlight Stock Trader RI of Prism, since it opens child windows, so it might provide you some guidance on this topic.

Additionally, you could check the following Mariano Converti’s blog post:

Regarding to support Back/Fwrd buttons it has not implemented in the Navigation Quickstarts.
