<!-- Set DrawerHeaderHeight="0" to disable Header and DrawerFooterHeight="0" to disable footer -->
  <StackLayout x:Name="ContentFrame" Orientation="Vertical">
      <StackLayout x:Name="headerFrame" Orientation="Horizontal"  BackgroundColor="#1aa1d6">
          <Label x:Name="homeLabel" FontSize="15" HorizontalTextAlignment="Center" VerticalTextAlignment="Center" HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" HeightRequest="50" Text="Home" TextColor="White" />
