Hi

We are using RadEntry as entry in our project. If you see the attached image, we want to use WatermarkText as placeholder where the text will have regular color & asterisk will be in red. Is it possible in  RadEntry?

Hello Tahmina,

There aren't any properties that let you set a different color for different letters in the WatermarkText, the WatermarkTextColor is used for the entire word.

If this is your goal, you can put a separate Label outside the RadEntry for the red asterisk, and show/hide that depending on if there's any Text in the RadEntry.

For example:

<StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal">
    <input:RadEntry WatermarkText="First name" WatermarkTextColor="LightGray" Margin="0" TextChanged="RadEntry_OnTextChanged"/>
    <Label x:Name="AsteriskLabel" Text="*" TextColor="Red" Margin="0" />
</StackLayout>

private void RadEntry_OnTextChanged(object sender, TextChangedEventArgs e)
{
    AsteriskLabel.IsVisible = e.NewTextValue.Length == 0;
}
