I have an abstract XAML content view and accompanying code-behind class.
I have two implementations of said class, both with their own XAML and code-behind class.
My intention is to add some additional controls in the deriving XAML implementations. My derived XAML classes look as such:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <views:MyBasePage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2009/xaml" xmlns:views="clr-namespace:Something.Views" x:Class="Something.Views.MyDerivedPage" Title="Overriding Title"> <ContentPage.ToolbarItems> ... some overriding toolbar items ... </ContentPage.ToolbarItems> </views:MyBasePage >
This compiles and runs just fine, but nothing I have declared in the overriding XAML file seems to happen. The title and the toolbar items stay the same as in the base XAML file. Is this not supported or am I doing something wrong? If it's not supported, how are we supposed to handle reuse of XAML?
