Zip file containing source code and screenshot demonstrating problem
On WinPhone 8.1 RT, the background color used in Entry fields is not as expected when actively editing the field.
I have attached a zip file containing source code and a screenshot. As the screenshot shows, the background color used when editing Entry fields on WinPhone 8.1 RT is white, even though the BackgroundColor property is set to yellow. On Android, the yellow is used, but on WinPhone 8.1 RT, white is shown. If the developer has changed TextColor, it is likely to be necessary to change the editing background color as well, to prevent white on white or similar. Either the BackgroundColor property should be used, or another property should be added.
Should be fixed in 2.0.2-pre1
Correction should be fixed in 2.1.0-pre1
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms.126.96.36.19908-pre3 and now its working.
Hence closing this issue.
