CHanging resourcedictinary for App.Current.Resources styles should not override properties set on UI-elements (a labels textcolor i.e). If the Labels textcolor is set to Black in code, styles for a label with setters for TextColor should not override it.
The style-properties will override the properties set in code for the specific UI-element
-If you set your apps resourcedictionary after the initialisation of mainpage it works as it should, but will stop
working when you push a new page (this goes for every page instantiated after resources has been set)
-This is a regression, this bug came in 2.3.4 pre 3, it was working fine in pre 2
-I have only tested on android
-I think this PR is the cause to this bug (ontroduced in pre 3) https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/737
-If its unclear what i mean just try the repro-project, it will make sense
It looks like the behavior is showing in pre6 as well.
Please note that declaring ResourceDictionaries as Application content is wrong. Application expect a Page as Content. Everything else is ignored, even if the objects are created. This works right now because the assignment test is done after the object creation, BUT THAT IS NOT GUARANTEED TO WORK IN THE FUTURE.
What you want is probably creating ResourcesDictionaries as separate Xaml roots (in separate files) and use those.
The current solution i have today is actually what you describe. I just made the repo very simple. but the result is the same in both scenarios.
Should be fixed on 2.3.4-sr1 or 2.3.5-pre1
I just updated my project to the stable release of 2.3.4 and this still seems to be an issue.
Thats because the fix is not included in 2.3.4...
Oops miss read the comment above my last sorry.
