Navigation between windows

Is it possible to navigate between windows without changing applications? ie. Have an event in a view in Window A, navigate to a new view in Window B?

I have 2 different window layouts and I'd like to keep the windows separate, and as I can see no way to link plugs in different windows, I'm stuck with calling a new application.

    Hi Matt,

    i hope i got you right, not quite sure. Create a new window C and embed the InterfaceViews of A and B into it.

    Define an outbound plug (NO exit plug) in InterfaceView of A called "ToB" and an inbound plug in InterfaceView of B called "FromA" (NO startup plug).

    Create a link between FromA and ToB and fire the plug from InterfaceView A for example in the component or a view controller of the component "owning" window C.

    The view which shall be the target of the navigation in Window B must have the "default" property set to true.

    Hope that helps.

      oh, then my last answer was a little bit too coarse grained, but luckily you did find the solution by yourself.

      Well done.

      I agree, maybe this would be a good starting point for a /community [original link is broken]. But providing a real good tutorial is a little bit tricky here, since i guess, that most (SDN) people around don't have access to a DTR, which is IMHO mandatory to show an example for a productive scenario.

      Thanks and regards,
