Get current value as string from Binding

ganesh96ganesh96 Member ✭✭✭

I'm trying to learn to work with local databases and more with Binding, so I my question might be strange.

I'm using a tutorial from Microsoft for understanding how to work with SQL Databases:

The app in the tutorial is full of binding as you can see.
When I want to edit a new item in the list, the code does the following to go to the other page:

Now I want to show the name of the item in a displayalert on the next page, so I need to get the binding result of 'Name' as a string in the C# code.

How can I do this?

    Thanks for the response,

    Somehow, the next page keeps returning the first database name everytime I go to that page, while the list item I selected is something different.

    Never mind: I made a mistake with changing the listview to ItemTapped, but I forgot to change the EventArgs with it.
