Description Sami M. Kallio 2015-04-22 12:34:08 UTC
Since the Button does not have TextDisabledColor the button when disabled in iOS ignores the TextColor property. This is simple to reproduce with the below code. The text becomes unreadable on dark background.

This is a possible cause for this bug as well: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=26862

        public App()
            // The root page of your application
            MainPage = new ContentPage
                Content = new StackLayout
                    VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center,
                    Children =
                        new Button
                            Text = "White text on black background",
                            TextColor = Color.White,
                            BackgroundColor = Color.Black,
                            IsEnabled = false
