I would like to user my tabs to navigate my app and the flyout menu to be for Info / help / config ....etc.
I have found a post that is saying to use menuItem and tabs but so far I have no luck with this. the tabs show but the flyout does not. I have only tested this on IOS so far.
This is what the post said to do and it is not working for me.

<TabBar>
    <Tab Title="Browse" Icon="tab_feed.png">
        <ShellContent ContentTemplate="{DataTemplate local:ItemsPage}" />
    </Tab>
    <Tab Title="About" Icon="tab_about.png">
        <ShellContent ContentTemplate="{DataTemplate local:AboutPage}" />
    </Tab>
</TabBar>

<menuitem text="random"
          iconimagesource="tab_feed.png" />
<menuitem text="help"
          iconimagesource="tab_about.png"/>

Thanks for any help.
