    I noticed today that while using the linkedin app the system tray icons (signal, battery, etc) all display in a medium clue color...but in every other app I have checked (and on the start screen) the icons are standard black. I must be missing something obvious, but how do we change that color for when our app is running?

    Apps can set that colour maybe. AFAIK

    in your MainPage.xaml, add this next to current shell:SystemTray.IsVisible:
    [CODE]shell:SystemTray.ForegroundColor="Blue"[/CODE]

    Not quite. Set the Background property of the page to a color. The Office Word app has the status bar blue.

    As this feature is being discussed I wondered if somebody could help me with my little big... I have set my XAML as follows and it works fine in the black theme but the text goes black in the white theme when the text should be white:

    [CODE]shell:SystemTray.IsVisible="True"
    shell:SystemTray.BackgroundColor="Blue"
    shell:SystemTray.ForegroundColor="White">[/CODE]

    II have set up a progress indicator to set the custom text:

    [CODE]var ProgressIndicator = new ProgressIndicator();
    ProgressIndicator.Text = "My App";
    ProgressIndicator.IsVisible = true;
    SystemTray.SetProgressIndicator(this, ProgressIndicator);[/CODE]

    Thank You

    I just found this. Probably the best solution to your answer.
