Description Jon Douglas [MSFT] 2014-07-21 13:00:55 UTC
The color property of an ActivityIndicator seems to only function on an iOS application. Tested on Android/Windows and it seems to only be the default ActivityIndicators being used.

You can reproduce with the following page:

    class ActivityIndicatorDemoPage : ContentPage
        public ActivityIndicatorDemoPage()
            Label header = new Label
                Text = "ActivityIndicator",
                Font = Font.BoldSystemFontOfSize(40),
                HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center

            ActivityIndicator activityIndicator = new ActivityIndicator
                Color = Device.OnPlatform(Color.Red, Color.Red, Color.Red),
                IsRunning = true,
                VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand

            // Accomodate iPhone status bar.
            this.Padding = new Thickness(10, Device.OnPlatform(20, 0, 0), 10, 5);

            // Build the page.
            this.Content = new StackLayout
                Children =
