I have been searching for how to do this, but am unable to find the right answer.

In JavaScript I can do this:

var app = new kendo.mobile.Application();

Then use the app variable to navigate between pages.

But how do I do this in MVC? I can't set the MVC razor tag to a JavaScript variable, so how do I call .navigate after doing:

@(Html.Kendo().MobileApplication()
        .Name("KendoMobileApplication")
        .PushState(true)
        .Transition("slide")
        .ServerNavigation(false)
        .Layout("databinding")
        )

I have tried this, but it seems less than ideal that I create a new application every time I navigate:

var app = new kendo.mobile.Application();
app.navigate("/Home/AccountType");

I've also tried

$("#KendoMobileApplication").context.navigate("/Home/AccountType");

But that doesn't work. It has no navigate method.

So what is the correct way of doing this?

Hi Gert,

You can get a reference of the already created application using this approach and then you can use the navigate() method to perform navigation:

http://docs.kendoui.com/getting-started/using-kendo-with/aspnet-mvc/helpers/mobileapplication/overview#getting-reference-to-the-kendo-ui-mobileapplication-widget

Please keep in mind that it is really important not to create more than one mobile applications in your project, as this can cause multiple errors and unexpected behavior.
