TableSection title not shown RRS feed

    I Used following code to create a table with two table sections:

                var section = new TableSection("Ring")
                    new SwitchCell {Text = "New Voice Mail"},
                    new SwitchCell {Text = "New Mail", On = true}
                var section2 = new TableSection("Ring2")
                    new SwitchCell {Text = "New Voice Mail"},
                    new SwitchCell {Text = "New Mail", On = true}
                var table = new TableView
                    Root = new TableRoot
                    Intent = TableIntent.Settings,

    The TableSection titles "Ring" and "Ring2" are not shown, just an empty line. The SwitchCells are shown correctly. I created a new project as mine( Forms Shared) and tested this code, and it works fine. It must be something wrong with my app. i tried to create this in several ContentPages in my app, but it doesnt work. I hope someone can give me a tip, which brings me on the right way.

    Its only an android. on iOS device it works fine.

    Did you figure out a solution to this? I'm running into the same problem.

    Anybody figure this out? I'm seeing this only on Galaxy S5 devices. Other Android devices work ok.

    Having the same problem here, anyone found out what is going on? Happening on some Galaxy tablets too. It was working fine in previous Forms versions (before 2.3.3). Seems to be related with the Accent color, I am using the Color.Accent in some other places too, and everywhere it is invisible(or transparent).

    The problem is that Color.Accent is not working correctly on some platforms.

    static Color GetAccentColor() { Color rc; using (var value = new TypedValue()) { if (Context.Theme.ResolveAttribute(global::Android.Resource.Attribute.ColorAccent, value, true)) // Android 5.0+ { rc = Color.FromUint((uint)value.Data); } else if (Context.Theme.ResolveAttribute(Context.Resources.GetIdentifier("colorAccent", "attr", Context.PackageName), value, true)) // < Android 5.0 { rc = Color.FromUint((uint)value.Data); } else // fallback to old code if nothing works (don't know if that ever happens) { // Detect if legacy device and use appropriate accent color // Hardcoded because could not get color from the theme drawable var sdkVersion = (int)Build.VERSION.SdkInt; if (sdkVersion <= 10) { // legacy theme button pressed color rc = Color.FromHex("#fffeaa0c"); } else { // Holo dark light blue rc = Color.FromHex("#ff33b5e5"); } } } return rc; }

    The Android 5.0 part is running event on 4.4.2 platforms and returning a wrong color. I think thay must use a Build.SdkInt test here.

    I did a workaround while the bug isn't fixed: Example:

    private EntryCell entryCellA = null;
    private EntryCell entryCellB = null;
    var Table = new TableView
        HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.FillAndExpand,
        Intent = TableIntent.Form,
        Root = new TableRoot()
            Title = "Root",
    Table.Root.Add(new TableSection { new TextCell { Text = "Your Text", TextColor = Color.Black } }); //workarround
    Table.Root[0].Add(entryCellA = new EntryCell() {Label = "Text 1" });
    Table.Root[0].Add(entryCellA = new EntryCell() { Label = "Text 2" });
