How do you link to a frame from a Code Component?September 29, 2018 at 1:59am
It's easy to link from a Frame to Frame from the Framer X canvas, but suppose I have a code component that is an autocomplete input. And if a user taps one of the autocomplete dropdown items, I would like to them to be routed to another frame. How would I accomplish that?

Well there seems to be a navigation component.. maybe worth look. But I didn‘t found out how to use it. Just to make some wrong hopes in here 😄

but if you have to use an api in order to get the interactions framer X claims to have...why not just write code?
I must admit, I'm deeply disappointed in how the Framer X website sells features that seem to either not exist at all or are gated behind prohibitively expensive plans. I've heard their excuse of "it's planned," but planning a feature doesn't mean that you can sell it to people.
@jasondb the api we're referring to is Framer's internal Library. If you've used framer classic, then you you've used it before. The Framer Library will make it a lot easier to create PageComponents, animations, ScrollComponents, Gestures, and other events. It will actually allow you to write LESS code and easier syntax (hopefully). It just wasn't ready for launch.
I agree that the launch was very underwhelming, and they overpromised what would be available. Once the full Framer Library is available, I imagine it will be much easier to create interactions. It's really the only reason I'm holding out on Framer X. Writing/Learning strict 1-1 code right now for PROTOTYPES is just not feasible or productive for me

Hi @saniales If you add a frame on top of your custom component, you can link this frame to another frame and animation remains. I've added a Material UI button and and pressed animation is still active, even with a frame on top. I believe this is a decent hack !

@timotheereyb But, as I understand such approach covers only simple cases when you click button like "Next" and want to go to the next screen.
The only way to walk through frames in prototype that I've found is to use native framer Page component. You just link it to several frames and then you can control the frame which you wanna be shown in Page component via overriding Page.currentPageIndex variable. But this component has animation and I don't know how to disable it to make transition from page to page instant.
