From Login page to main page?


I'm new to the xamarin forms in visual studio. I'm trying to create an app with a login. And this app show should show a lot of info getting from a service..

The question is how to do this? I mean moving from the login page to the next?
What kind of page or something should I be using?
You don't want to get back to the login page unless you logout, because on a mobile app you do that rarely.

I've seen some code where the view.xaml.cs creates the next view but I don't think that is the way to go?

I have created a view which is the login and a vm handling all this. My views are in xaml.

Is possible to do with a factory pattern or something?

    The most common way to do this is to push the login page modal on the navigation stack and pop it when you logged in.

    Thanks for the the reply @TorbenKruse !
    hmm.. I think I get the principle but I have a hard time doing it in the code... could you show it somehow?

    In my app class do this:
    MainPage = new NavigationPage(new LoginView());

    I have a command in my viewmodel(button command) which is binded to the view.. and in this command its logging in, and from here I want to navigate to the next page. How do I do that due to Navigation.PushAsync cannot be called here?

    Should I do another approach or something? A simple example of what I'm looking for would be appreciated!

    Thanks guys this really helped me out!

    In my method where I log in, I change the mainpage as you said, but I needed it to have it like this to work:

    Device.BeginInvokeOnMainThread(() => App.Current.MainPage = new NavigationPage(new HomePageView()));
