Description John Miller [MSFT] 2015-12-21 18:21:31 UTC

   A custom renderer is used for an Entry. When implemented, all Entry controls are changed, even when they are not the custom class. 

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   1. Use the following code in an Android project for the renderer

[assembly: ExportRenderer(typeof(MyEntry), typeof(CustomEntryRenderer))]
public class CustomEntryRenderer : Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android.EntryRenderer
      protected override void OnElementChanged (Xamarin.Forms.Platform.Android.ElementChangedEventArgs<Xamarin.Forms.Entry> e)
			base.OnElementChanged (e);
			if (this.Control != null) {
				Control.Background.SetColorFilter (Android.Graphics.Color.Pink, PorterDuff.Mode.SrcAtop);

   2. Use the following code in the PCL/Forms project

public class MyEntry : Entry {}

MainPage = new ContentPage()
                Content = new StackLayout()
                    Children =
                        new MyEntry(),
                        new Entry(),

**Actual Results:**

   Notice that all Entry borders are pink.

**Expected Results:**

   Only 1 of the Entry borders should be pink.

**Build Date & Platform:**

   XF 2.0

**Additional Information**

Change the Children above to be like this:

Children =
     new Entry(), // Non custom first
     new MyEntry(),

Now only 1 of the controls renderers pink when the custom is moved second.

This just has to do with how Android works and isn't a Forms issue as a result.
