Description Navinkumar D 2016-10-17 06:28:30 UTC
Xamarin Version -

I want to handle Windows 10 Software back button for my windows 8.1 app. Below code is not getting hit when the back button is tapped.

protected override bool OnBackButtonPressed()
            return true;

Hence when I click back button its closing the App instead of navigating to previous page.

You double created this bug. Can you close one? https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=45536

There should be an "edit" button next to "Status: NEW" at the top of this page. Set it to "RESOLVED -> DUPLICATE"
