All my Entry fields the line becomes pink in Android


  I use PDFViewer to display agreements, after user clicks agree button, all my entry fields line become pink, I tried to navigate to that page directly w/o passing the PDFViewer, Entry fields line are black. 

  How can I avoid this?

Recommended approach - exe will perform automatic configuration
Please find the patch setup from below location: 

Advanced approach – use only if you have specific needs and can directly replace existing assemblies for your build environment
Please find the patch assemblies alone from below location:

Assembly Version:
Installation Directions : 
This patch should replace the file “
Syncfusion.SfPdfViewer.XForms.Android.dll” under the following folder.
$system drive:\ Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\$Version # \precompiledassemblies\$Version#\4.5.1
Eg : $system drive:\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\precompiledassemblies\\4.0

To automatically run the Assembly Manager, please check the Run assembly manager checkbox option while installing the patch. If this option is unchecked, the patch will replace the assemblies in precompiled assemblies’ folder only. Then, you will have to manually copy and paste them to the preferred location or you will have to run the Syncfusion Assembly Manager application (available from the Syncfusion Dashboard, installed as a shortcut in the Application menu) to re-install assemblies.
