Android Question

Where can I find the default styles for Theme.AppCompat.Light?

I'm trying to customize a theme that extends

Theme.AppCompat.Light
. I'm not sure which values I need to change specifically, for instance:


  • Action bar text color

  • Default window / view background color



I'm using the new
android.support.v7.widget.ToolBar
for my action bar so normal values like
android:actionBarStyle
don't seem to be working on it.

I'd like to just see a list of default properties and values for each style so I can at least look up which attribute I need to change.

Thanks!

If you are using Android Studio then it would be easy to track down default/in-build resources/styles. Press Ctrl and take your cursor onto the Theme.AppCompat.Light and click on it will take you to that values.xml file.

You will find below styles:

 <style name="Theme.AppCompat.Light" parent="Base.Theme.AppCompat.Light" />

 <style name="Base.Theme.AppCompat.Light" parent="Base.V7.Theme.AppCompat.Light" />

 <style name="Base.V7.Theme.AppCompat.Light" parent="Platform.AppCompat.Light">
        <item name="windowActionBar">true</item>
        <item name="windowActionBarOverlay">false</item>

        <!-- Used by MediaRouter -->
        <item name="isLightTheme">true</item>
        <item name="selectableItemBackground">@drawable/abc_item_background_holo_light</item>
        <item name="selectableItemBackgroundBorderless">?attr/selectableItemBackground</item>
        <item name="homeAsUpIndicator">@drawable/abc_ic_ab_back_mtrl_am_alpha</item>
        <item name="dividerVertical">@drawable/abc_list_divider_mtrl_alpha</item>
        <item name="dividerHorizontal">@drawable/abc_list_divider_mtrl_alpha</item>
