Shell Tab layout

RogerSchmidlinRogerSchmidlin CHUniversity ✭✭✭

I am using Shell with a flyout. I would like to have my own tab template. Is that possible? I tried Shell.ItemTemplate but that only has an impact on the flyout itself not the tabs. In particular, I would like to specify the dimensions of my icons in the tabs.

    Do you want to adjust your image size like following screenshot?

    You could adjust the icons by the setting HeightRequest="" and WidthRequest="" like following code.

                    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
                    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
                <Image Source="{Binding Icon}"
                       HeightRequest="80" WidthRequest="30" />
                <Label Grid.Column="1"
                       Text="{Binding Title}"
                       VerticalTextAlignment="Center" />

    If not, can you provide a screenshot about what do you want to achieve?

    I am talking about formatting the bottom tab bars when the flyout is closed

    I thought that would be possible out of the box. All control supplier do it this way, like SyncFusion. If Xamarin comes out with this new thing called Shell, I would expect it to have a itemtemplete I could supply. But thanks for your suggestion.
