A style needs to be implemented as a theme on an activity to work correctly. Look at how to apply that style and what changes to the activity need to be made.
- [Instructor] In the last video,…we created a base style.…Now we want to override that style to…add some settings on Lollipop or later devices.…To do this, under the resources directory,…we create a new values V21 folder.…Inside this folder, we'll create a…new styles XML file.…We are using the special resources folder…structure in Android to specify anything…in this new values V21 folder will…be used on API version 21 and up.…
API 21 is the version for Lollipop.…Anything not found here will go back…and use the items set in the base values folder.…For example, the colors I defined in the…colors XML folder in the last exercise…will show up for Lollipop and above devices,…even though they are not in the values of V21 folder.…The values of V21 folder will only…contain new items and overrides.…This new style is also named theme by theme…and inherits from the same my theme.base…we created under value styles XML.…
I usually copy the code to do this…from an existing project.…I've got that in a text file here.…And we'll paste it right inside my XML file.…
