Axis title only working for iOS

I am setting the primary and secondary axes titles in SfChart like this:

chart.PrimaryAxis.Title = new ChartAxisTitle()
Text = "P axis title"

chart.SecondaryAxis.Title = new ChartAxisTitle()
Text = "S axis title"

The titles only appear on an iOS device, not on Android and Windows Phone. Am I doing something wrong?

I have used SyncFusion's ChartGettingStarted project.

Correction: it also works for Android, so the problem only concerns Windows Phone.

Hi Prabakaran

Thanks for your quick reply. 

Your sample helped me locate to root cause of my problem. Windows Phone IS able to show axis titles. It is NOT possible, however, to change to font color of the axis titles. Since I have placed the chart in a view with a white background, the titles are not visible because their default color is white and cannot be changed. The following has no effect:

chart.PrimaryAxis.Title = new ChartAxisTitle()
Text = "P axis title",
TextColor = Color.Red

Hope you can reproduce this on your side.

Hi Steen,
Sorry for the inconvenience caused. 
We are able to reproduce the issue, We will fix this issue in our next service pack release which is expected to be rolled out in the end of November, 2014. However, you can resolve this issue by set the Font property without creating new instance for Title.
We have prepared a sample based on this and you can find the sample in the following location.
Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.
