Forum Visual Studio

ViewController Navigation Bar Properties are not updating from Designer

I noticed if I tried setting the Storyboard Simulated Metrics Top Bar and Status Bar to none they still show:

In addition, when I try typing in a new title it doesn't seem to update in either the simulator or in the storyboard view.

After starting a new project, I found that if I try editing the title when the controller is selected, the title doesn't update:

But if I select the actual Title Bar Navigation Item it does:

Is this expected behavior?

I'm working in the Alpha Channel.

    The simulated metrics issue is definitely a bug and it's on our list.

    The view controller title and navigation item title are separate properties on separate objects, and the navigation item title takes precedence. You'll see that if you delete the navigation item, the view controller title will appear instead.

    Thanks Alex,
    Do you guys want us to report these type of issues in the forum? Or is there a bug tracking system or something else you'd like us to log these type of issues?

    Keep up the good work!

    You can keep reporting the issues here and we should see them. I just fixed some of these issues and will try to get the rest fixed soon.
