Hi Luca,


Greetings from Syncfusion.


We would like to let you know that currently we are revamping our UG document of Native platforms (Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS) SegmentedControl. Changes will be reflected in our Volume 1 Service Pack 1 2020 release which is scheduled to be rolled by end of January 2020.


Query : FontColor is not Working:


We were able to reproduce the same and currently we have a workaround to resolve the same by setting FontSize of SegmentedControl as per in below code snippet


Code Snippet [C#]:

protected override void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)



            SfSegmentedControl segmentedControl = new SfSegmentedControl(this);

            segmentedControl.LayoutParameters = new ViewGroup.LayoutParams(ViewGroup.LayoutParams.MatchParent, 300);

            segmentedControl.SelectionTextColor = Color.Green;

            segmentedControl.FontColor = Color.Red;

            segmentedControl.FontSize = 15;

            List<SfSegmentItem> clothList = new List<SfSegmentItem>()


                new SfSegmentItem(){Text = "Item 1"},

                new SfSegmentItem(){Text = "Item 2"}




            segmentedControl.ItemsSource = clothList;

            segmentedControl.SegmentHeight = 60;

            segmentedControl.SelectionIndicatorSettings = new SelectionIndicatorSettings()


                Position = SelectionIndicatorPosition.Bottom,

                StrokeThickness = 2



            segmentedControl.VisibleSegmentsCount = 3;

            segmentedControl.DisplayMode = SegmentDisplayMode.Text;




Query : is it possible to unselect an item if i clck on it when it is selected?


Currently we don’t have a toggle option selection in SegmentedControl. Once SegmentedItem has been selected that selection on same item has been ignored.


Query: i need to be able to have no one item selected


If your requirement is to clear the entire the selection on segmented control then, it has been achieved by setting – 1 as SelectedIndex property of SegmentedControl.


Please check and let us know if you need any further assistance.

Hi Luca, 
We have validated your query and we would like to let you know that the SegmentedControl FontColor property is working fine at our end. Please find the tested sample from the below location. 
As we can't know your exact application scenario and couldn't replicate the issue in your case. Could you please let us know whether you are populating the data source as String or CustomViews in your application? If possible, can you please revert us by modifying the sample based on your application along with replication procedure or provide full code snippet for segmented control. This will be helpful for us to provide you better solution at the earliest.

We also have a need to clear the selected item when the item is clicked up.   Do you have any suggestion on how to accomplish this?
