Failed to set Custom TTF font on the TabItem labels

Asked On June 3, 2019 06:17 AM UTC

Hello, everyone.

I am new in Syncfusion Xamarin controls, testing navigation drawer, nested tabviews and gauges now.
I am developing my app with Xamarin.Forms 4.0 and Syncfusion from NuGet packages.

The problem I am struggling to solve is ...
I can not change the font of labels on the TabItem of TabView.

See the following fragment.
<tabView:SfTabItem Title="Lobby" TitleFontFamily="MonoFont" TitleFontSize="20">  ... </tabView:SfTabItem>

TitleFontFamily is not working. TileFontSize is working.
The given tab label is displayed by default font. maybe TitleFontFamily is ignored.
MonoFont itself is not problem because normal Xamarin.Forms controls can display that font without problems.

I tested Custom Header and checked I can change the font.
But custom Header is not the option, because I want to keep Selection Indicator.

Is there no way to change the font?
