Description Niels 2015-06-06 08:25:54 UTC
MasterPage in Windows Phone (WP) is dismissed when selecting an item from dropdown (Picker)
I have a MasterDetailPage which I use for filtering a list. The Master contains the filter dropdown boxes, and the Detail contains the list off results. On Windows Phone, whenever I select an item from the dropdownbox, the Master is dismissed. iOS and Android work fine.

We'd be happy to help you resolve this issue. Please help us by attaching a reduced reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Forms project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue. If you'd do this for us we would very much appreciate it. If you are able to reproduce the issue without modifying the platform specific projects that would eliminate a number of possibilities and likely expedite a resolution. 

Warm regards,
Xamarin Forms Team

Test project for comment 4

I have another customer reporting this issue. Test Project attached. In this test project, the Master menu selects pages to show. Once any page is selected form the Master menu, the Master menu disappears and I can find no way to get it back. 

Also, if app is launched in portrait mode, the Master page is not shown initially (expected) but again I am not able to open the Master menu. 

## Steps to reproduce

1. Open the attached sample for comment 4 in Visual Studio

2. Set the Windows 8.1 app as the startup app and launch to the simulator. 

3. If simulator is in landscape, select a page from the master menu.

Expected result: Master menu will remain visible and will not close.

Actual result: Master menu closes and won't reopen with gestures or any other method I could think of. 

4. Stop debugging.

5. rotate Windows simulator to Portrait and relaunch app.

Expected result: I can open the Master menu with a swipe (or button)

Actual result: I can not open the Master menu.

Comment 5 Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2015-08-04 20:53:30 UTC
Additional note: Comment 4 is only about the Windows 8.1 app. For Windows Phone 8.1, the Master menu can always be opened with the "X" button on the bottom of the screen. This button is not present for the Windows 8.1 app.
Comment 7 Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2017-02-22 21:01:02 UTC
WP8 is deprecated (https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/xamarin-forms/getting-started/installation/#Windows_Phone_8_Silverlight) and as such this is being closed.
