How can I change Text color for Disabled ComboBox in Xamarin Forms?


Product Version R2 2022
Product ComboBox for Xamarin


I want to maintain the text color as black on a Disabled Combobox instead of the default color. How can I achieve it?


RadComboBox provides a few useful styling properties, such as TextColor, PlaceholderColor, BackgroundColor and more. You can easily change them through the VisualStateManager for different visual states of the control. ComboBox has the following visual states: "Normal", "Focused" and "Disabled".

Here is a quick example how to set TexColor according to the control's current visual state:

<telerikInput:RadComboBox x:Name="comboBox" 
        <VisualStateGroup x:Name="CommonStates">
            <VisualState x:Name="Normal">
                    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="Blue" />
            <VisualState x:Name="Focused">
                    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="Red" />
            <VisualState x:Name="Disabled">
                    <Setter Property="TextColor" Value="Black" />
        <x:Array Type="{x:Type x:String}">
            <x:String>United Kingdom</x:String>
