The StyleId property on ToolbarItems appears to be ignored/lost. This makes automated testing problematic.
For details see the forum thread at the following URL, which describes the problem perfectly:

This is also true for the new AutomationId
Comment 2 Shawn Castrianni 2016-06-15 18:15:55 UTC
I just tested a Xamarin.Forms app on iOS where I created a ToolbarItem and set the AutomationId.  When I ran a REPL window, I was able to see the AutomationId value set on the Id of the native UINavigationButton control.  At least for X.F running on iOS, I have confirmed this works now for:

Xamarin.TestCloud.Agent 0.19.1

@shawnCastrianni actually you are correct! I forgot that my page is actually taking a list of toolbar items on one page and adding them to another.

My bad!

@John Hardman: Is this still an issue, or are you able to use AutomationId instead?

Comment 5 Shawn Castrianni 2016-12-05 15:30:50 UTC
I guess it is fixed based on my AutomationId test above on June 15, 2016
Comment 6 John Hardman 2016-12-05 15:59:01 UTC
@Samantha Houts - I'm holding off on further UITest automation until I know whether/when Windows platforms will be supported. Happy for this to be closed based on Shawn's test. Will re-open if I return to UITest and encounter the problem again in future.

Fair enough! We'll keep an eye out for this to be reopened. Thanks!!

Hi I tried using Style ID and Automation ID in the toolbar items of my Xamarin.Android project but it doesn't work. The issue is not resolved.
Comment 9 Samantha Houts [MSFT] 2017-05-09 00:44:02 UTC
I'm afraid ToolbarItems on Android lack the required property to set AutomationId. This property may be available with API 26+, so we will revisit this issue at that time. Until then, we may have to consider this a platform limitation.

I am still experiencing this issue on iOS 9.0.2 and below. Other iOS versions work fine.
