Hi just as the title suggests I'm sure this should be simple but alas it isn't working for me, I'm not looking for anything fancy like onTabSelected etc I just want to set the color of the entire widget based on the theme, right now im trying to do the following, which I'm not sure if is correct but its not working,
It looks like this is what I need
<style name="CustomTabLayoutStylePink" parent="Base.Widget.Design.TabLayout">
tabBackground should be in your XML file and not inside the style.
<android.support.design.widget.TabLayout ... app:tabBackground="@color/colorPinkPrimary" ... />
