I am creating an Android API 10 app, and am trying to set the colour of text in TextViews. I wish to set the colour to red, but 'holo_red_dark', which is the colour I am using is only available for API 14 & above. I cannot find any colour red in the 'resources' window that is compatible with API 10, so I just wanted to know how I would get around this? Thanks.
You can create a colors.xml file in your res folder and define your colors.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <resources> <item name="blue" type="color">#FF33B5E5</item> </resources>
And use it like
<TextView android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:text="@string/hello" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:id="@+id/TextView01" android:textColor="@colors/blue"/>
