example of my nested navigation page, hacked together to work in forms
We can't be limited to the content pages that coem with forms, and there is no documentation on how to make other custom ones, beyond the clipped image example on the xamarin forms, which doesn't really cover embedded pages.
This is known as "view controller containment" on iOS, and I believe that on android is just multiple activities, which is to say, it's an entirely common pattern that we would need to be able to create apps, in which we can choose which pages to display in the way we want, with our own gestures and chrome.
We need more examples on how to do this, better documentation, and even better of all, would be a view which we could drop into any other page, which we can set a view controller on.
this is a very common pattern I use in all my iOS apps, making the creation of highly custom navigation systems very trivial.
I think it's a huge oversight on Xamarin's behalf, and should be rectified asap, if you want to see the kind of high quality apps created with the framework which are only possible with more flexibility.
I've added an example of my own system I use
I have checked this issue with attached sample and observed that the Back button is not working fine.
The other issue related the same : https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=28525
this is not a duplicate.
the other issue is about the back button not working.
This issue is a FEATURE REQUEST, to allow us to easily embed pages inside pages.
The code example is only to show you the kind of feature we need. Please ignore the back button on this issue - I wanted you guys to see how I could do something like htis.
To create custom navigation.
Thank you for your feature request, we have taken it into consideration.
