I am trying to build something similar to a social network where I am using bindings to get text from viewmodel into my xaml view.
Some of these texts will have mentions using @someonesnickname and I would like to know if there is way to use a converter or something else to get this text and add a gesture recognizer so that when the user tap on the person's username it navigates to another view to check the other person's profile.
Is that possible?
One thing to keep in mind is that I would not know before hand what the text will be, so it may or may not have someone else's username in there, but when it has, it creates the span with the tap gesture recognizer.
Another thing to keep in mind, I am loading this inside a listview. AKA: there may be many posts and each post may or may not have mention to another user.
