Entry: [Android] Watermark is not visible with the latest Xamarin.Forms update (5.0.0.2478)
After updating Xamarin.Forms to version 5.0.0.2478, the WatermarkText doesn't show in RadEntry on Android anymore.

Thanks for the workaround, it works for me, since I have extended the RadEntry control, I have added this in the OnNativeControlLoaded() override

Hello,

The issue is already in development, it will be available with the next release of Telerik UI for Xamarin controls.

For now, there is an easy workaround - just set the WatermarkText property in code-behind with some delay:

Device.BeginInvokeOnMainThread(()=>
{
    entry.WatermarkText = "write your name here";
});

Regards,
Yana

I second this.  I confirm that this is happening.
