Change title color in toolbar?

I have a toolbar that I use, and set title with:

((ActionBarActivity)getActivity()).getSupportActionBar().setTitle("Home");


Is there a way to change the color from black to white?

I tried making its own theme and setting it in the xml like this, but no dice:

<resources>

<!-- Base application theme. -->
<style name="AppTheme2" parent="Theme.AppCompat">
<item name="android:windowNoTitle">true</item>
<item name="windowActionBar">false</item>
<item name="colorPrimary">@color/primary</item>
<item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/primary_dark</item>
<item name="colorAccent">@color/accent</item>
<item name="android:textColorPrimary">@color/primary_text</item>
<item name="android:textColorSecondary">@color/secondary_text</item>

</style>

<style name="Widget.MyApp.ActionBar" parent="Widget.AppCompat.ActionBar">
<item name="android:background">@color/primary</item>
<item name="theme">@style/ThemeOverlay.MyApp.ActionBar</item>
<item name="popupTheme">@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Light</item>
</style>

<style name="ThemeOverlay.MyApp.ActionBar" parent="ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.ActionBar">
<item name="android:textColorPrimary">#FFFFFF</item>
</style>



</resources>


XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:background="#e5e5e5"
android:orientation="vertical" >

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
android:id="@+id/toolbar"
android:minHeight="?attr/actionBarSize"
android:background="@color/primary"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
style="@style/Widget.MyApp.ActionBar">

<Spinner
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@+id/statsSpin"
android:spinnerMode="dropdown"
android:textColor="#FFFFFF"/>


</android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar>



<ListView
android:id="@+id/yourStats"
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:dividerHeight="0px"
android:divider="@null"

>
</ListView>



</LinearLayout>

Answer

Programatically:

toolbar.setTitleTextColor(0xFFFFFFFF);
