# Xamarin.Forms Page

# TabbedPage

A TabbedPage is similar to a NavigationPage in that it allows for and manages simple navigation between several child Page objects. The difference is that generally speaking, each platform displays some sort of bar at the top or bottom of the screen that displays most, if not all, of the available child Page objects. In Xamarin.Forms applications, a TabbedPage is generally useful when you have a small predefined number of pages that users can navigate between, such as a menu or a simple wizard that can be positioned at the top or bottom of the screen.

var page2 = new ContentPage {
Title = "Tab2",
Content = new Label {
Text = "I'm the Tab2 Page",
HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
