How to set it as parameter in c++ ??? (I don't get it)

ContentFrame().Navigate(winrt::xaml_typename<winrt::App1::Page1>(), NULL, ???);  



I have an other issue.

I've got 2 pages which i load into the frame within the MainWindow.xaml.

I've created a static variable to have access to the frame:

winrt::App1::implementation::MainWindow *MainWindow::s_mainWindow;  

If i call a page with 1 parameter, it works.


If i call it with 3 parameters, i have an unresolved external symbol...

#include "pch.h"  
#include "MainPage.xaml.h"  
#if __has_include("MainPage.g.cpp")  
#include "MainPage.g.cpp"  
#include "winrt/Windows.UI.Xaml.Interop.h"  
#include "EditProcess.xaml.h"  
#include "MainWindow.xaml.h"  
using namespace winrt;  
using namespace Microsoft::UI::Xaml;  
// To learn more about WinUI, the WinUI project structure,  
// and more about our project templates, see:  
namespace winrt::App1::implementation  
    int32_t MainPage::MyProperty()  
        throw hresult_not_implemented();  
    void MainPage::MyProperty(int32_t /* value */)  
        throw hresult_not_implemented();  
void winrt::App1::implementation::MainPage::MenuFlyoutItem_New_Click(winrt::Windows::Foundation::IInspectable const& sender, winrt::Microsoft::UI::Xaml::RoutedEventArgs const& e)  
        MainWindow::s_mainWindow->ContentFrame().Navigate(winrt::xaml_typename<winrt::App1::EditProcess>(), nullptr,  


Is it because of the way accessing the frame?

    You can see the MS samples in C# and C++ at NavigationView

    with the function

    void MainPage::NavView_Navigate(  
            std::wstring navItemTag,  
            Windows::UI::Xaml::Media::Animation::NavigationTransitionInfo const& transitionInfo)  

    which calls

     ContentFrame().Navigate(pageTypeName, nullptr, transitionInfo);  

    with parameters :

      NavView_Navigate(L"home", Windows::UI::Xaml::Media::Animation::EntranceNavigationTransitionInfo());   

    (replace Windows::UI::Xaml::Media::Animation::EntranceNavigationTransitionInfo() by
