Entry.TextColor does not work when Enabled is False. The TextColor appears as the default black.
**Steps to Reproduce:**
1. Create a Forms project.
2. Add this code to a ContentPage
<Entry Text="1" IsEnabled="true" TextColor="Red"/>
<Entry Text="2" IsEnabled="false" TextColor="Red"/>
3. Run on iOS
The disabled Entry still has a Black text color.
The disabled Entry should have a red text color.
**Build Date & Platform:**
XF 2.2 pre2
On non-forms iOS projects, a disabled UITextField will have the red text color as expected.
Also an issue on Android
I have this problem as well.
For me, iOS shows black whereas Android shows gray. I don't see red at all when the entry is disabled.
Additional information : in the first version of Form Xamarin it is working properly
Same here in iOS
For Android I manage to find a work around with a custom render and overriding OnElementPropertyChanged
I tried to use the same logic in iOS but with not success.
Is there are result or workaround for this on iOS? My client needs a black background so when the field is disabled it effectively disappears.
PR was closed. Moving back to confirmed status. I'm afraid that's all the information I have at this time.
We have this issue (Entry does not respect TextColor when IsEnabled=False) with 188.8.131.526-pre6 in iOS
I can confirm that this is also happening on 184.108.40.206107
Still happening on 220.127.116.114934
