    Menu nav between DataGrids

      Does anyone know how to go about setting up a Menu button to navigate between a series of TabNavigators, without putting them into a ViewStack? I have a series of Custom Components I want to navigate between on a Main Application. The problem is, I'll end up having well over 200 Custom Components to navigate between.

      I'm developing an App that requires a user to select from a Menu button, then from there the user will select which TabNavigator to go to.

      Thanks in Advance
