# Steps to reproduce


Clone the master samples project https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-forms-samples (which uses Xamarin.Forms to

Open the and execute the UWP EffectDemo https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-forms-samples/tree/master/Effects/FocusEffect

And it works as expected with the background changing when the  Entry element is focused or unfocused.


With Visual Studio 2017 choose "Manage Nuget for Solution" with pre release selected. Upgrade Xamarin.Forms from to

Re-compile and deploy the the UWP project.

And the demo no longer works as expected, the BackgroundFocusBrush color is ignored.

# Expected behavior

The background color of  Entry element should change when focused or unfocused.

# Actual behavior

The background color of  Entry element does not change when focused or unfocused when using the pre release of xamarin forms.
