Description John Hardman 2016-05-06 14:42:39 UTC
On Windows Store 8.1, Buttons are displayed with a visible Border, even though BorderWidth is set to 0.

The following is a dump of relevant properties of a Button in my app. The BorderColor is set to Color.Lime, but with both BorderWidth and BorderRadius set to 0, a Lime colored border is still displayed. With BorderWidth set to 0, I would not expect to see a border at all.

Text = "RNo", 
TextColor = [Color: A=1, R=0, G=0, B=0, Hue=0, Saturation=0, Luminosity=0], 
BackgroundColor = [Color: A=1, R=0.752941191196442, G=0.752941191196442, B=0.752941191196442, Hue=0, Saturation=0, Luminosity=0.752941191196442], 
BorderColor = [Color: A=1, R=0, G=1, B=0, Hue=0.333333343267441, Saturation=1, Luminosity=0.5], 
Margin = (12,12,12,12), 
BorderWidth = 0, 
BorderRadius = 0, 
Height = 38

The same happens on UWP as well.
