Android Question

Where can I access default AppCompat style themes?

I'm using the appcompat support library and theming my activities using

@style/Theme.AppCompat etc
My resource folder only has layouts and string file, so I don't know where are the styles I'm referring to here.
Plus I don't have any intellisense, so I would like to access the theme I'm using to get accent colors and different styles and so on without creating new themes.
I just want to know what I have by default, thanks.


Here you have the list of themes.

Additionally you could consult this file locally in:

iOS: /Users/yourusername/.local/share/Xamarin/Xamarin.Android.Support.v7.AppCompat/23‌​.3.0.0/embedded/res/values.xml

Windows: User\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Android.Support.v7.AppCompat\\embedded\res\v‌​alues.xml

Here you have a nice tutorial on how to customize themes.
