I want to change the background color of status bar by writing an application. My android device has black color, i want to change it to some other color. I saw here, some posts related to it but all are telling about notification background.
If any body know about this please help me.
The default status bar
After using a drawable as background to status bar
Sorry, unless you are making a custom ROM this isn't possible, unless you only want the status bar changed for your app.
This would require a heck of a lot of work.
First you will need to add Theme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen to your manifest
<application android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher" android:label="@string/app_name" android:theme="@android:style/Theme.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen" >
Then once you have done that you need to create a standard layout which represents the status bar, this would mean that you have to add the time, and also receive all the notifications from other apps, I do not personally know how to do that but I'm sure there is a way.
If you really want to do this goodluck, you have a hard time ahead of you.
Sorry, unless you have the know how of building custom ROMS I do not think this is possible
