Description Charles Petzold 2015-10-05 14:48:16 UTC
In this program:


change this line:


to a call to SendBackButtonPressed() 

Run the program on a Windows Runtime platform. On the Home page click the button. On the second page, enter at least one character in the two Entry fields and select something in the Picker. The Done button should become enabled. Press it. 

On iOS, Android, and Windows Phone Silverlight, the call to SendBackButtonPressed causes the program to go back to the Home page. On the Windows Runtime platforms, nothing happens.
