UX: How do you use triplat-route to navigate back to the main page?


I’ve been following the video tutorials on the UX framework, and I think I understand how triplat-route works now. However, I’m unsure how to navigate back to the main page from one of my elements in the iron-pages tag. Do I need to have a universal menu across my whole app? I’d prefer not to do that, if possible.

If you defined, in the root page, a home route like this:

<triplat-route id=”homeRoute” name=”home” path=”/”></triplat-route>

Then, inside a child page you can do this:

<triplat-route id=”homeRoute” name=”home”></triplat-route>

_navigateHome: function(){

this.$.homeRoute.navigate();

},

UX: Why doesn’t the UX routing work with triplat-route?


I am new to the UX framework and was going over the YouTube tutorials. But for some reason, I am not able to get the routing working. I have done the following:

  • 1. Imported the following packages…
  • 2. Added the following lines of code…
  • 3. Added the selector to handle the pages…
  • 4. Added the JavaScript to navigate to the next page…

When I click on the button, it is not redirecting me to the next page. I don’t get any errors on the browser. I have attached the file for reference.

I was able to figure out the issue. It was the way I added the elements: triplat-route is not supposed to be a child of triplat-ds…
