Passing variable to custom controls .NET MAUI

New Contributor

So I'm working on an application that allows the user to create a note and attach it to various entities.  Because of this I created the note creation as a ContentView in my .NET MAUI project then I can display it wherever I need it instead of recreating it each time.  Is there a way to pass a variable (i.e. contact id from the create contacts page) to the ContentView?  4 days of digging and so far haven't found anything close.

@LanHuang I actually did figure it out. The easiest way i found was using MessegeCenter when the button was clicked. I added the model into the message from the view and simply subscribed from the control.
