Description Ryan Alford 2017-03-15 14:05:57 UTC
In a previous bug(https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=53357), I stated that AccessbilityLabel no longer works with the latest version of Xamarin.UITest. Since that doesn't work, I tried using AccessibilityIdentifier, which the documentation states should also work.

I have found that setting the AccessibilityIdentifier on the UITabBarItems in a UITabBar do not work. 

This functionality worked fine in previous versions when I used AccessibilityLabel, but now that AccessibilityLabel doesn't work, I am forced to use AccessibilityIdentifier instead, which now doesn't work with the UITabBarItem.

Make sure you set AccessibilityLabel in UIThread.
