Description Massimo Prota 2015-02-19 13:45:35 UTC
Setting 'Color' property for 'ActivityIndicator' isn't reflecting on Windows Phone, where default theme color will always be used instead.

It should be possible to override system's color, and set a custom one.
Our App is always on Light theme, and often on devices using Black theme the progress bar is invisible.

We've managed to override this behavior in a custom renderer, but I think setting the property in XF ActivityIndicator should reflect at runtime

  public class ActivityIndicatorRenderer : Xamarin.Forms.Platform.WinPhone.ActivityIndicatorRenderer
        protected override void OnElementChanged(ElementChangedEventArgs<ActivityIndicator> e)

            this.Control.Foreground = new SolidColorBrush
                Color = "#AC0104"
