Custom Header in Mono for Android App

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm working on my first app using Mono for Android. I feel like I'm trying to do something basic but I'm not having any luck. Essentially, I want to have a custom "banner" at the top of my app. The banner is simply a black rectangle with two words: "Hello" and "World". Hello is in red, and World is in Blue. I'm not getting anywhere with this. Does anyone know how to do this? Thank you! (HowTos)
