Making Buttons In Components Work

How do you make individual buttons work inside of components.  Everything I've found so far is about making galleries of buttons.  Is it possible?

 

I tried making a header home screen button & put this in OnSelect:   Navigate(Dashboard,ScreenTransition.None)

 

It says there are invalid arguments.

The screen name 'Dashboard' cannot be typed into the component.  A component has no access to the rest of the app except when it is passed in through an input property.


Create a new input property called ScreenDashboard.  Then choose Screen as the input type.  After you have placed the component in your app put 'Dashboard' in the ScreenDashboard property


To get it working change the code in the OnSelect property  of your button to this

Navigate(your_component_name.ScreenDashboard,ScreenTransition.None)
