about:error reroute?

is it possible to reroute "about:error" to a new NavigationContentHandler?

NavigationContainer has ErrorUrl property, that will be displayed when Navigate() failed.

Or do you want to do something different?

Well, not out of hand - but if you change the association in the source then you can, as it's just a normal Map/DefineNavigationContainer type of declaration.

thanks for tip, but i want to overwrite the default error route... so that every navigation container uses the same localized error page out of the box...


i'm careful with source code modifications, because then i have to apply them on every release and it could get complicated for me :)....

after digging through the source code i finally found a workaround (for anyone who's interested):

        void ReMapRoute(string uri, IRouteHandler handler)
            Contract.Requires(handler != null);

            var routeData = RouteTable.Routes.GetRouteData(new UrlRequest(uri));
            if (routeData != null)

            RoutingService.MapRoute(uri, handler);

            ReMapRoute("about:error", new NavigationContentHandler(p => new AboutError()));
            ReMapRoute("about:blank", new NavigationContentHandler(p => new AboutBlank()));
