Description Gaurav Kumar 2015-08-20 15:09:29 UTC
I hava a Tabbed page Inside a Navigation Page As Detail Of Master Details Page, Clicking on tabs doesn't work, it always shows the last page.

public class TestTabMasterDetailPage : MasterDetailPage
public TestTabMasterDetailPage ()
Icon = "icon.png";
Master = new Page{ Title = "Login" };

        var tabbedPage = new TabbedPage {
            Children = { new TabbedViews("First Tab") , new TabbedViews("Second Tab"), new TabbedViews("Third Tab")

        Detail = new TestTabNavigationPage(tabbedPage);
public class TestTabNavigationPage : NavigationPage
public TestTabNavigationPage (Page root):base(root)
Icon = "icon.png";

public class TabbedViews : ContentPage
public TabbedViews (string name)
Title = name;
Label label = new Label () {
HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.End,
XAlign = TextAlignment.Center,
YAlign = TextAlignment.Center,
BackgroundColor = Color.White,
Text = "powered by " + name,

        var InsideStack = new StackLayout {
            Orientation = StackOrientation.Vertical,
            VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.FillAndExpand,
            Children = { label }

        Content = InsideStack;

I am attaching the solution..

If you use the AppCompat the application it should help to resolve the issue. You can see this blog post for some extra information: https://blog.xamarin.com/material-design-for-your-xamarin-forms-android-apps/
