repro project

### Overview
The Detail page of a MasterDetailPage will show a navigation bar even when not wrapped in a NavigationPage.

### Steps to Reproduce
1. Run the attached UWP project

### Expected Results
No navigation bar is visible.

### Actual Results 
The navigation bar is visible even though the page is not wrapped in a NavigationPage. I'm not sure if this is an intended change in behavior than previously. 

### Regression Status

Reproduces UWP toolbar issue in Forms Prism app

This repo shows that toolbar items are hidden in UWP if a content page is wrapped in a masterdetail & navigation page.

Unfortunately this scenario is very common for a lot of apps including Prism Forms app so this issue will affect a lot of apps if you ship 2.3.4 with this issue.
Comment 3 NMackay 2017-03-06 16:35:55 UTC
To test (use the following navigation URI's in app.xaml.cs)


Comment 4 Samantha Houts [MSFT] 2017-03-06 22:28:31 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.3.4-pre3. Thank you!
Comment 5 NMackay 2017-03-07 00:07:36 UTC
Thank you to the team for looking at this.
Comment 6 Rui Marinho 2017-03-10 15:33:39 UTC
Sorry the fix is in 2.3.4-pre4
Comment 7 NMackay 2017-03-14 10:06:20 UTC
Fix does not resolve my issue at all. Tested pre-4 on a Nokia 650 handset. Build with SDK 10586 (.NET Core.UWP 5.2.2)

Can someone please help with this.
Comment 8 NMackay 2017-03-14 10:52:58 UTC
Also tested with SDK 14393, no change.

Could someone look at the repo I attached on the 6th March and my comments on the 6th to show how to reproduce this issue.

Comment 9 Rui Marinho 2017-03-14 15:28:31 UTC
NMackay are you saying this doesn't work? Seems working for me.

   var masterPage = new ContentPage { Title = "master" };
   var detailPage = new ContentPage { Title = "detail" };
   detailPage.ToolbarItems.Add(new ToolbarItem() { Text = "one" });
   var mdp = new MasterDetailPage();
   mdp.Master = masterPage;
   mdp.Detail = new NavigationPage(detailPage);
Comment 10 NMackay 2017-03-14 15:30:29 UTC
Hi Rui,

Could you try the sample app I attached to the bug? you'll need to upgrade it to 2.3.4-pre4 from pre2.

The sample app works fine for toolbar items in
Comment 11 Jimmy [MSFT] 2017-03-14 15:34:53 UTC
I ran the Prism sample from comment 2 with 2.3.4-pre4 and I am seeing the toolbar item on the page. Is it not working only on the 650 device or also on an emulator?
Comment 12 NMackay 2017-03-14 15:36:27 UTC
HI Jimmy,

It's not working on the device, I don't use any emulator due to DNS issues with the VS emulators in out domain.
Comment 13 Rui Marinho 2017-03-14 15:44:27 UTC
Nah.. it doesn't show here running on desktop mode, but it does work on master. The problema is on mobile or desktop version?
Comment 14 Rui Marinho 2017-03-14 15:45:38 UTC
NMackay also we need to reproduce this without prismo, but i think the code i posted abvoe is what you pretend.
Comment 15 NMackay 2017-03-14 16:04:09 UTC

I've upgraded the repo to 2.3.4-pre4 and tested on the nokia with SDK 10586 and anniversary and it works fine as you say.

My main app with is the exact same components/SDK (same code for image selection etc) won't show the toolbaritems in any page.

This is torture.
Comment 16 NMackay 2017-03-14 16:04:54 UTC
Just mobile, I'm not targetting desktop
Comment 17 NMackay 2017-03-14 16:09:52 UTC
I'll remove all nugets completely for all PCLs and platform specific and re-add (13 projects but worth a go)
Comment 18 NMackay 2017-03-14 16:28:50 UTC
Rui & Jimmy

Happy days, removing all nugets from the solution, cleaning,re-adding seems to have done the trick. I did notice pre2 was still hanging about.

Modal toolbar & master detail toolbars now work totally as expected including moving to the top using platform specifics.

Great job.
