Description gandharvkumargarg 2016-06-08 15:14:14 UTC
In a tabbed page when we navigate to a new content page and when pop from the new content page and come back to the tabbed page neither the OnAppearing() nor the Constructor is called . hence unable to update the data.   Happens only in android. In iOS the OnAppearing() function is being called. and we can update the data 

P.S.- as a workaround we have used messaging center for the android inspired from the xamarin evolve application .
