Bug Description

Each Page should have the ability to customize a few things about the look of the header, these changes should take affect when the page becomes the top page in a PageStack or the current tab in Tabs.

headerTextColor: Set the color of text displayed in the Header

I removed the other (header background) properties from this bug, they are now in a separate bug here:

Michael can you discuss with design which customization is important?

I do not think "android-compat" is a good enough motivation for implementing certain features. If you can add a few use cases, that would help in prioritizing the features and deciding on an API to add them (for example, for a fixed header color per-app we may recommend to use theming, or add a property to the MainView. However, if it is a common use case to change the header-color per Page in an app, we may need to add a property to the page. It is also important to get feedback from design on this to find out which settings we like to promote and for which we will recommend the app developers to use the defaults to make the applications consistent).

Workaround for the header color: use MainView.backgroundColor, this also updates the header background.
If you need the page contents to be a different color from the background, you can add a background in the Page.

The features requested here are actually several features. I am working on a branch to set the foreground and background color of the header. For images, please report a separate bug.
