Comment 1 Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2014-07-25 16:42:41 UTC
From case: I am trying to create a login page with Xamarin.Forms where the page's title is "Sign In" and the next page's back button reads "Sign Out"

I tried this in LoginPage.cs
protected override void OnAppearing ()
base.OnAppearing (); 
this.Title = "Sign in"; 
UpdateChildrenLayout ();
this.ForceLayout ();

It does update the page title the first time the form loads, upon successful login this code runs:

if (loggedIn) { 
this.Title = "Sign Out";
Navigation.PushAsync (new ProjectsPage (viewModel.Context)); 

which changes the back button on the next page to "< Sign Out".

The issue is when I click that back button and go back to the login page, even though the OnAppearing() code is executed and it has ForceLayout() the title is not updated.

Is there a way to force the title to update, am I doing it The Right Way™, or is this a bug in Xamarin.Forms?

I was able to reproduce this issue with a test project I made. 

To repro:

1. Load the attached solution and select the iOS project as the startup.
2. Run the project.
3. Note that "Sign in" is displayed as the initial page title, which is set in the OnAppearing method for the page.
4. Press the Second Page button. Back button displays "Sign out" as the title of the LoginPage was changed on the button press before the SecondPage is pushed. 
5. Press the back button to go back to the LoginPage.

Expected Result: LoginPage will show the Title "Sign in".
Actual Result: LoginPage displays the title "Sign out". 

It seems the Title property is set as the console displayed the correct title when outputting the Title property to the console, but the title is _not_ displayed in the navigation bar. 

On Android, it works as expected.
