      Here is a full synopsis of how to move from the old NavigateURL to the new method

      References for your project must be made to:

      • DotNetNuke.Abstractions
      • Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection
      • Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection.Abstractions
      • * the dlls can be found in the bin directory
      • DotNetNuke.Abstractions is required for INavigationManager and must be declared above as an imports or using (depending on language) before your class definition
      • Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection is required as an imports/using so that you can call on the PortalModuleBase.DependencyProvider

      Each of these returns a string which you can then do redirects with or whatever.

      • The old way - Common.Globals.NavigateURL(PortalSettings.ActiveTab.TabID, "YourControlKey", "mid=" & CStr(ModuleId))
      • The new way - DependencyProvider.GetRequiredService(Of INavigationManager).NavigateURL(PortalSettings.ActiveTab.TabID, "YourControlKey", "mid=" & CStr(ModuleId))

      If you want to circumvent the call to DotNetNuke.Abstractions you can call it like this:
      DependencyProvider.GetRequiredService(Of Abstractions.INavigationManager).NavigateURL(PortalSettings.ActiveTab.TabID, "YourControlKey", "mid=" & CStr(ModuleId))

      Nice...  This would make for a great blog post! If you're interested, I'd be happy to open up blogging to you so you can blog about this here.  :)
