Is there a way to set the background color for a text symbol in 100?

I've scanned the forum for this and haven't found anything on it. I'm also fairly new to the current ArcGIS Runtime, so be patient with me. 

I'm trying to add a background to the text symbols I'm showing, but they don't show up, or else I'm doing it wrong (probably the latter). I tried a composite symbol, but that didn't do what I needed either. 

Text label with no background

There needs to be a dark background behind this, but no such luck. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Clay,

This is most likely because it's not there in 100 release. Background property is added to TextSymbol in next release that is coming out quite soon.

Any time frame on the release? Quite soon is a little ambiguous.

Hi Clay,

You should be seeing the release coming out from the door in a months time.
