Description Michael Rumpler 2016-07-26 19:08:40 UTC
On Android Color.Accent is set to a hardcoded value in Xamarin.Forms.Forms.SetupInit (in the Platform.Android project) and it cannot be changed by the user.

This color is then used as text and separator color for TableSections. The user cannot override the color.

As the hardcoded color may not fit to the users app theme, this should be changed.

The color should either be read from the current Android theme or Color.Accent should become settable.

Should be fixed in 2.3.2-pre1. Thank you!
