Another navigation strategy in Ignition is to have Forward and Back Buttons on your main screen to navigate between different windows. This strategy is perfect for a small business process with ordered steps. It does not have a docked window, tree view, or tabs to navigate around. It is one big main window and has buttons to navigate forward and back from one Main Window to the next in the list.
This navigation strategy is very simple to setup in the Designer. You can start by creating your project using a blank template.
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to create Main Windows 2 and 3, respectively. On Main Window 2 make sure you have a button for both Main Window 1 and Main Window 3. Set your window path for the Main Window 1 button to Main Windows/Main Window 1 (refer to step 4). For the Main Window 3 button, set the window path to Main Windows/Main Window 3.
In the following example, Main Window 2 is open. By clicking either button, it will navigate you to the respective window. Click on the Main Window 1 button, and Main Window 2 swaps out and opens Main Window 1. Click on the Main Window 3, and Main Window 2 swaps out and opens with Main Window 3. You'll notice that you always have one main window open.
