Run Sample for Tabs Android Forms.

Click Push Page2.
Click Push Tab

Tab Message:
Tab2Page2 Appear (OK)
TabPage1 Appear (OK)
TabPage1 Disappear (WHY? wrong)
TabPage1 Appear (WHY 2 times?)
Tabpage2 Disappear (WHY?)

What I think should happen:
TabPage1 Appear.

Just like in iOS...
Comment 6 Andrew 2016-09-13 17:08:44 UTC
Marius: The best solution be just TabPage1 to appear.  Navigate to Tab2, TabPage2 appears.  

unsure how Xamarin overlooked testing on this.

Hi Guys,

It is crazy, i posted a solution since last may 2017 on the PR 354.

It is seems nobody want really solve this problem.

If you comment lines 37 to 51 in FragmentContainer.cs, the events appears all normal....

public override bool UserVisibleHint
	get { return base.UserVisibleHint; }
		base.UserVisibleHint = value;
//		if (_isVisible == value)
//			return;
//		_isVisible = value;
//		if (_isVisible.Value)
//			PageController?.SendAppearing();
//		else
//			PageController?.SendDisappearing();
In facts, if you comment thoses lines (UserVisibleHint), methods below, do their jobs.

public override void OnHiddenChanged(bool hidden)

	if (Page == null)

	if (hidden)

public override void OnPause()
	bool shouldSendEvent = Application.Current.OnThisPlatform().GetSendDisappearingEventOnPause();
	if (shouldSendEvent)


public override void OnResume()
	bool shouldSendEvent = Application.Current.OnThisPlatform().GetSendAppearingEventOnResume();
	if (shouldSendEvent)


Can someone confirm that ?
Best regards,
