An object of type Entity should be passed to the page, but no object is available

Hi,  I’me very new to Mendix and I’m thinking that this should be a simple procedure but i’m lost.  How do i pass an Entity object to page? I’m setting up a simple navigation where I would like to Show a page when the user selects the menu.   Please help.  Glenroy

Hope this helps.


Best regards,
