Get background color of a Layout

I want to find the background color of a Layout from my code. Is there any way to find it? something like

linearLayout.getBackgroundColor()
?

Answer

This can only be accomplished in API 11+ if your background is a solid color.

            int color = Color.TRANSPARENT;
            Drawable background = view.getBackground();
            if (background instanceof ColorDrawable)
                color = ((ColorDrawable) background).getColor();
