I am working on a Windows Phone 8.1 RT universal app. For my scenario, I have two pages, the first page mainpage.xaml which has a pivot and two pivot items. when I click on a tapped event on a textblock in the second pivot item, I go to the second page. Now if I click the hardware back button, it takes me back to the first pivot item. Shouldn't it take me to the original pivot item where I started my navigation?
I am sure I am missing something very basic here..... :)
Thanks for your help!
Have you tried setting NavigationCacheMode on the Page to Enabled? This way the page should be cached so when you go back, the second PivotItem should remain selected.
