On Lollipop devices and higher we can easily change the status bar color at the very top of our device to match the color scheme of our application. We look at how that can be accomplished.
- [Narrator] The last thing we want to do…is set the background of the system bar…to the secondary color that we call primary dark.…We can do this on Lollipop and above devices,…but not on devices before, though there are…some workarounds for KitKat.…In our case, we are only working with Lollipop and above,…so we ensure the device is already on that version.…So I'll go up into the OnCreate and I'll check…to find out if we're actually running on Lollipop and above.…I'll put in an if statement and…we'll check the build version,…and we'll want to look at the Sdk integer,…and this is going to return back an integer value…of the Sdk, and we're looking for 21 and above.…
So we can say that's greater than equal to…BuildVersionCodes of the Lollipop.…We now want to tell our activity…that we want to change the system bar background.…So we're going to call Window, AddFlags, and we'll set that to…WindowManagerFlags.DrawsSystemBarBackgrounds.…The last thing we're going to do is set…our status bar color to our secondary color.…
