The Xamarin Tabbed View is a simple and intuitive interface for tab navigation in mobile application, where users can explore and switch between different tabs.

Adding multiple tabs

The Xamarin.Forms tabbed view will display a list of tabs that will hold the required views. Populate tabs either by adding each tab item or binding it to a data source. It can hold any number of tab items. Users can define the visible tabs count and access the remaining tabs by using the drop-down menu or simply scrolling to make them visible.
