Status Bar Color - Android Studio

How do I change the Status Bar Color of my app that I'm making in Android Studio so that it changes to a static color on Android Lollipop 5.0 or higher and doesn't crash on Mobile running lower version of Android OS.

Answer

Try using this, this works for me

//changing statusbar
if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= 21){
                Window window = this.getWindow();
                window.addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DRAWS_SYSTEM_BAR_BACKGROUNDS);
                window.clearFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_TRANSLUCENT_STATUS);
                window.setStatusBarColor(this.getResources().getColor(R.color.primary_dark));
            }

For changing color ActionBar :

 <style name="MyActionBar" parent="@android:style/Widget.Holo.Light.ActionBar">
        <item name="android:background">#ffff00</item>
    </style>

and declare on your manifest in application tag

<application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/MyActionBar" >

hope it help
