Description Roman 2017-09-26 19:39:57 UTC
I use black color of StackLayout background. And therefore I need to set text color for controls. I've just faced to this problem for entry and entrycell while. For example I can set LabelColor for EntryCell but this is only label! 
How can I set color for text which is typing???
Comment 1 Paul DiPietro [MSFT] 2017-09-26 19:49:48 UTC
There is no TextColor property on EntryCell to adjust the value. You can return a custom ViewCell with a layout and use an Entry with the desired text color, or possibly use a custom renderer. There are resources available on how to do this (a quick search, such as on the Xamarin forums, yields https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/17713/entry-how-to-change-the-font-and-placeholder-text-color). In the future, please aim to use Bugzilla for bug reports opposed to questions regarding the API. Thanks!

Ha! So I understood that it is heavy to realize this properties for you. I will think that xamarin project is raw.
