    Do it solves your issue?

    private async void btnItens_Clicked(object sender, EventArgs e)
          await Navigation.PushModalAsync(new MainPageItens(_idorcamento, lib));

    Where MainPageItens is your new Page. In this my case i have two parameters for the constructor of new page.

    @Nani_777 - There are a few ways of doing this. Probably the easiest is to have the button navigate to a proxy URL, using HTML5/JS. In your Xamarin PCL, add a handler for the Navigating event of the WebView. When that handler is called, have it open the new page.

    @JohnHardman thanks that worked and i have another problem. when I come back by pressing the back button it gives me an error html page because the proxy url doesnot exist. Is there a way to prevent the webview from loading the proxy url

    @Nani_777 - There's a nice way and a hacky way.

    The nice way is to replace that Navigating event solution by the more complex one at:

    The hacky way is to do one of a few things. All along the lines of:

    Add a Navigated handler. Check the WebNavigatedEventArgs to see whether navigation succeeded or failed. If it failed, navigate (if necessary) back to the previous URL, either by doing using the GoBack() method, or by navigating explicitly to that URL.

    Obviously, that will fire the Navigating event again, so your Navigating handler will need to differentiate.
