In the second of two navigation videos we filmed for Silverlight TV, Karl Shifflett joins John Papa to demonstrate how he made some simple extensions to the navigation API in Silverlight in order to solve very common business problems. Karl demonstrates how to navigate away from a screen and leave markers indicating that the screen is still active even though it is hidden. He also demonstrates how to manage state while navigating between different pages.

This episode is jam packed with a ton of great navigation strategies and tips that you won't want to miss.
