How to add an image to title bar in Xamarin Forms UWP?

Copper Contributor

Hello, I've been trying to add an icon to the title bar in Xamarin Forms UWP, but couldn't. I've search several articles and most of them were for native UWP apps. I tried to implement the same way to my Xamarin Forms UWP, but it didn't work. 

Here are my changes:


<Grid Background="{ThemeResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}">
        <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />
        <RowDefinition Height="*" />

    <Grid x:Name="AppTitleBar">
        <Rectangle x:Name="BackgroundElement" Fill="Transparent" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
            <Image Height="32" Margin="5,0" Source="Assets/StoreLogo.png" />
            <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" VerticalAlignment="Center" Text="My Mobile App" />



public sealed partial class FirstPage
public FirstPage()

// Hide default title bar.
var coreTitleBar = CoreApplication.GetCurrentView().TitleBar;
coreTitleBar.ExtendViewIntoTitleBar = false;

// Set XAML element as a drag region.


LoadApplication(new MainApp());


 This change only extends my app to the title bar, but didn't add the AppTitleBar content. Could you please help me with this issue? Thank you.
