Navigation

ddClient.desktopUI.navigate enables navigation to specific screens of Docker Desktop such as the containers tab, the images tab, or a specific container’s logs.

For example, navigate to a given container logs:

const id = '8c7881e6a107';
try {
  await ddClient.desktopUI.navigate.viewContainerLogs(id);
} catch (e) {
  console.error(e);
  ddClient.desktopUI.toast.error(`Failed to navigate to logs for container "${id}".`);
}

#### Parameters

| Name | Type     | Description                                                                                                                                                                                            |
