Android Define primary, primary dark, and accent colors


Example

You can customize your theme’s color palette.

Using framework APIs

5.0
<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.Material">
    <item name="android:colorPrimary">@color/primary</item>
    <item name="android:colorPrimaryDark">@color/primary_dark</item>
    <item name="android:colorAccent">@color/accent</item>
</style>

Using the Appcompat support library (and AppCompatActivity)

2.1.x
<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat">
    <item name="colorPrimary">@color/primary</item>
    <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/primary_dark</item>
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/accent</item>
</style>
