Windows Phone provides an UriMapper object. That object defines a mapping that will be used through the entire application for all navigation process. URI mapping are used to “hide” real navigation structure and provide query string parameters to the pages.

Following picture shows a sample mapping process. When user press “P2/123” it will be navigated to relative address “/P2/123” which is a fake address. That fake address is mapped by “/P2/{number}” to “/Page2.xaml?id={number}”.


When you are in the page use NavigationContext to get query arguments.
