Hi,

In Xamarin Forms, How can I check the current page by name, something like this:

if (App.Current.MainPage == MyAddress)
{
          / do something      
}

Thanks,
Jassim

    Odds are your MainPage will not be the actual page you want, but a MasterDetailPage or NavigationPage or TabbedPage or Shell, so you need to dig a little deeper. Besides that, using the type of the page is probably the best option.

    // Assuming your MainPage is a NavigationPage and MyAddress is the class name of the page you want
    var navPage = Application.Current.MainPage as NavigationPage;
    if (navPage?.CurrentPage is MyAddress)
    {
        // do something
    }
