The DatePicker for instance is displaying a color that I cannot change by the datepicket attributes in the Xamarin forms. I suppose I can play with styles in Android but I cannot find the way. Does somebody can help me?
I suspect you'll need to implement a customer renderer.
Also worth checking out effects but the renderer discused above should help you.
Thank you for your feedback but not sufficient. It is my fault, I was not clear. My issue is on the Popup opened by the Date Picker. This popup has not the same color than my app and I want to change it. I push the idea a little on the renderer but it seems that it is not enough.
Did you face this kind of problem?
Here you can find a screen shot of the popup I want to change this blue color
You don't change it from Cross Platform code.
The thing I would do is probably a style in the Android Styles.xml file for it.
I tried without success but maybe I did it badly. For me this is the best way to proceed but if other solution could resolve, I take it.
I change the style.xml by adding this line
If there is another way to set this property through the renderer I take it.
As adam correctly stated, you'd have to modify your android theme, for UWP you'd have to override the style in the platform specific App.xaml file, in iOS....I'm guessing it'll be pretty tricky. Might be a combination of renderer + style.
To style the dialog correctly I had to implement my own platform specific dialog service.
3rd party providers like Telerik provide customizable pickers for dates.
What do you mean by build your own Platform specific dialog service?
Did you re-create all the popup?
Well Xamarin Forms just calls the platform specific API's wrapped up by Xamarin with it's dialog implementation, you can download the source from github and take a look.
You can then use the dependency service to access your own native implementation of the dialog.
In Xamarin 2.3.4 you can also surface native controls and bind to them so that's potentially another avenue to investigate.
