Test Case Project
When implementing a WebViewRenderer, overridden delegate methods are not called.
## Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the attached sample on iOS.
## Actual Results:
The overridden ShouldStartLoad method is not called.
## Expected Results:
Method should be called to have a way to implement similar functionality to native APIs with ShouldStartLoad, etc.
## Build Date & Platform:
## Additional Information:
There are also a number of Events available in UIWebView (LoadStarted, LoadFinished, etc) which are not called. This might be by design, but it is unclear why it does not work.
I have checked this issue with the steps provided in bug description and observed that overridden 'ShouldStartLoad' method is not called, when we run the iOS application.

There are two changes that need to be made to the sample code to get this to work. First, the code in the CustomWebViewRenderer should be in the OnElementChanged event, not in the constructor (and base.OnElementChanged should be called first). Second, you need to remove the LoadStarted code because you can only use events or delegates, not both, so the definition of LoadStarted disables the Delegate. and of course un-comment delegate assignment. the After making those changes ShouldStartLoad will be called.
If you need to change how the delegate works a custom renderer is suggested.
