How do I change the label color for a TimePicker inside a SfDataForm?

I cannot seem to set the TextColor for the automatically rendered TimePicker inside a SfDataForm:

[Display(Name = "Start Date")]
public DateTime StartDate { get; set; }

[Display(Name = "Start Time")]
public DateTime StartTime { get; set; }

[Display(Name = "End Date")]
public DateTime? EndDate { get; set; }

[Display(Name = "End Time")]
public DateTime? EndTime { get; set; }

public class DataFormLayoutManagerExt : DataFormLayoutManager
      public DataFormLayoutManagerExt(SfDataForm dataForm) : base(dataForm)


      protected override void OnEditorCreated(DataFormItem dataFormItem, View editor)
          if (editor is TimePicker)
              (editor as TimePicker).TextColor = Color.Blue;              

          editor.BackgroundColor = Color.Yellow;

dataForm.LayoutManager = new DataFormLayoutManagerExt(dataForm);

Setting the TextColor still doesn't change the text color to blue. Any ideas why?

Hi Karl, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have already found and fixed the mentioned issue “The text color for time editor doesn’t updated in DataForm” and the issue fix will be included in our upcoming 2019 Volume 1 Service Pack 1 release which is expected to be available by mid of May 2019. We appreciate your patience until then.  
Please let us know if you want the fix earlier, where we can include this fix in our upcoming Weekly NuGet release (April 23, 2019).

Please do include it! It's preventing me from releasing an upcoming feature.

Highly appreciate it!
