I have checked this issue with the help of attached Test sample project and able to reproduce successfully. To reproduce this issue I have followed below steps:

Comment 5 Stephane Delcroix 2015-06-26 03:40:48 UTC
happens for other controls than just BoxViews, reopening
Comment 6 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-07-01 05:56:46 UTC
This bug was about boxview. The other controls backgrounds are overwritten by iOS because thats how iOS works. If in the future we want to change this we can entertain a feature/configuration option.
Comment 7 Parmendra Kumar 2015-07-16 10:15:47 UTC
I have checked this issue with X.F 1.4.4-pre1 and its working fine at my end.
The red BoxView still be visible when the item is selected.
