Hint text not displaying on Android text entries

I'm new to xamarin, and have just created a new project. I'm wondering how I can get the floating hints/labels to appear above text fields when they are selected, as illustrated in the google material design documentation (see labels: https://material.io/guidelines/components/text-fields.html#text-fields-input)

I've created a custom renderer for my entry control, this all builds and works fine, but I'm not 100% certain of the properties of the control I need to set.

I found this article: https://blog.xamarin.com/add-beautiful-material-design-with-the-android-support-design-library/

But it seems to cover Xamarin.Android apps rather than Xamarin.Forms apps? unless I'm misunderstanding something fundamental here!

Thanks for your help!
