How to set paint.setColor(R.color.white)

I have a custom View that uses Paint and Canvas to draw objects. My question is how to set:

int color = R.color.white;
paint.setColor(color);


from my /res/valuse/color.xml which includes resources like

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
<color name="white">#FFFFFF</color>
<color name="black">#000000</color>
...
</resources>

Answer

Something like this:

int myColor =
    context.getResources().getColor(com.example.test.R.color.white);
paint.setColor(myColor);

The setColor() method takes a color number as an int value, but not a resource id which is an int as well.
