Visual Studio project to reproduce the problem in this bug report
=== Overview ===
On UWP, using Xamarin.Forms, if a Behavior modifies the BackgroundColor of an Entry, then the set background color will stick when the Entry is unfocused, even if the background color is changed to something else. It is as if the initial setting of the background color sets a focused and unfocused background colors and any subsequent color change only sets the focused background color.
A tarball containing a reproducing project is attached.
=== Steps to Reproduce ===
Using the attached project:
1. First Entry on MainView starts with Red background since it has a Behavior which detects empty string.
2. Type non-empty string to the first Entry. Notice how the background is now white due to the Behavior.
3. Focus second entry. The first entry background is now pink, which is unexpected.
4. Press button "Default background". The first entry will stay pink.
=== Expected Behavior ===
Setting Entry background color should change for both focused and unfocused Entry state.
=== Actual Behavior ===
When Behavior sets the background color of an Entry, the set color will stick when entry is unfocused and cannot be changed.
