Setting VisualElement.BackgroundColorProperty to Color.Transparent no longer works. Checked in 188.8.131.5238-pre1.
### Steps to Reproduce:
public class DarkTextCell : ImageCell
var cell = new DataTemplate(typeof(DarkTextCell));
### Actual Results:
The cell background is still white.
### Expected Results:
The cell background should be transparent.
### Build Date & Platform:
### Additional Information:
This did work in a previous version. (Might have been 1.1.1)
Still an issue in 184.108.40.20640-pre2.

I have checked this issue but I am unable to reproduce this issue.
Steps I followed:
1. Create an Blank App ( Xamarin.Forms Portable) on XS.
2. Add a new Content Page on XS.
3. Write the following code on newly added Content page.
public partial class MyPage : ContentPage
Label header = new Label
Text = "TextCell",
Font = Font.BoldSystemFontOfSize(50),
HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center
TableView tableView = new TableView
Intent = TableIntent.Form,
Root = new TableRoot
Text = "This is a TextCell",
Detail = "This is some detail text",
this.Padding = new Thickness(10, Device.OnPlatform(20, 0, 0), 10, 5);
this.Content = new StackLayout
4. Call the newly added content page from app.cs file
return new MyPage();
To check this issue I have set the VisualElement.BackgroundColorProperty to Color.Transparent and I observed that it is working and I am able to set the VisualElement.BackgroundColorProperty to Color.Transparent . I have also try to set few colors and I am also able to set background color.
Checked with: 220.127.116.1143
Could you please provide me test steps or sample application and environment info? So, that we can reproduce this issue.
