How to write React Navigation for your app
In a previous article, we explained how to write your own navigation components using React.js.
In this article, I’ll take a closer look at how to make navigation components that look like Google Navigation.
Navigation components are like menus in other apps, with different elements that can be customized in order to provide different functionality.
We’ll be using Google’s Navigation Definition for our navigation, which describes how the user navigates between various categories.
The Navigation Definition provides a set of definitions for navigation components.
Navigation definitions are used to create navigation components by adding components to a hierarchy.
The hierarchy is a container that contains components that are related to the same item in the hierarchy.
For example, if we have an item that has an icon in the navigation definition, then we could have an Item with a Name, an Icon, and a Category.
The Item with the Name is the container for the navigation component.
When we want to display an item, we call a navigation action and add the Navigation Definition to the container.
The navigation definition is used to provide navigation components with a default action.
If we want an item to be displayed when we click on an icon, we’ll use a navigation element.
We use the navigation element to specify the navigation action, as well as a default value that is used for the Navigation Element’s default action, if the Navigation Component’s default navigation action is undefined.
Let’s take a look at the navigation example in the previous article.
The nav component is a Navigation Definition that defines the navigation.
It contains the Navigation Action, which defines the default navigation value.
The value of the Navigation action is used by the navigation components when they call the Navigation element.
The Navigation Element has an Icon and a category.
The category is used as a category to display the category.
In the navigation case, the category is called “navigation” and is called NavigationAction .
In the next example, we will add the icon to the NavigationAction.
We then add a Category to the navigation category, as we did in the first example.
This is a navigation component that has a Category component as well.
In both examples, the NavigationComponent and the NavigationElement have Navigation Definition components that they use to specify navigation action.
Navigation Definition and Navigation Action are the only two types of components that you can use to define navigation actions.
You can use other components that have other navigation action types as well, such as the Navigation Label.
If you don’t have any Navigation Definition or Navigation Action components, you can create them using the ComponentFactory.createNavigationComponent() method.
For this example, I’m using the default NavigationDefinition and NavigationAction components that were introduced in React 0.6.
Here are the two examples that are shown in this article: Navigation Definition Navigation Action Navigation Element The navigation component has a NavigationDefinition that specifies the navigation actions, and the navigation elements.
When a user clicks on an item in our Navigation Definition, the navigation is triggered and the category of the navigation item is displayed.
NavigationAction The navigation action specifies the default action that is called when the navigation event occurs.
In our navigation example, the default navigational action is called Navigate.
Navigation action types are not limited to a single type of action.
In fact, the standard library provides many more types of navigation actions than we need in this tutorial.
You could write a custom navigation action to handle different navigation situations.
The most common types of actions are NavigationControls, NavigationElements, NavigationLinks, and NavigationContent.
The default navigation actions are called NavigationControls and NavigationLinks.
For a list of the types of Navigation Control types, check out the Navigation Control Type Definition article.
NavigationElevation If a navigation user clicks and drag a navigation item in one of our Navigation Elements, the user will then click and drag the navigation to another navigation element in the NavigationDefinition.
NavigationLink NavigationLink The navigation link element has a navigation link as a navigation value and a navigation label.
If the navigation user navigated to the first navigation element, the label is updated to say Navigate to the next navigation element and then Navigate back to the original navigation element using the NavigationLink navigation value for the first navigational element.
NavigationLabel The navigation label is the navigation label for the navigational item.
NavigationItem The navigation item has a navitem as a value and is labeled with the navigation link.
NavigationLinks The navigation links are navigation links that are placed in navigation items that are defined by a navigation definition.
NavigationContent The navigation content is the content that the user is shown when they hover over the navigation items.
You might create your own navigational content and add your own buttons to it.
In general, you should create navigation content to be used for user interactions with your app.
For an example of navigation content, check the NavigationContent example in this section.
