Description John VanSickle 2018-01-29 21:15:56 UTC
Label appears under a Grid when using custom renderer for the grid and adding a gradient on Mac OS 10.12.6. This layering issue does not appear when the application is run on Mac OS 10.13.2.

The gradient is being added in the OnElementPropertyChanged of the Grid's custom renderer by adding a CAGradientLayer to the NativeView.Layer. 

Custom renderer OnElementPropertyChanged:

var gradient = MakeGradientLayer();
NativeView.WantsLayer = true;
NativeView.Layer = new CALayer();

The Grid:

<Grid x:Name="TheGrid" WidthRequest="210" HeightRequest="44" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" VerticalOptions="Center" Margin="0" Padding="0" ColumnSpacing="0" RowSpacing="0">
                <RowDefinition Height="44" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="36" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="159" />
                <ColumnDefinition Width="15" />
            <!--            <Button Text="Btn" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" HeightRequest="36" VerticalOptions="Center" Margin="5, 0, 5, 5" />-->
            <Label Text="The Label" FontFamily="Segoe UI" FontSize="14" FontAttributes="Bold" TextColor="Black" Margin="0, 0 ,0 ,5" VerticalOptions="Center" HorizontalOptions="Start" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" />
            <Button Text="-" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="2" VerticalOptions="Start" HeightRequest="15" Clicked="Minimize" />
