For some reason I can't change the theme on my app. I want the light theme, but the following line in styles.xml doesn't change the theme.
<style name="AppTheme" parent="android:Theme.Holo.Light.DarkActionBar" />
Am I missing something simple? It looks like the styles.xml setting is being overridden somewhere else.
Look at your AndroidManifest.xml file, there should be a line like below, change the theme from there.
<manifest> <application android:theme="@style/Green" /> <uses-sdk android:targetSdkVersion="19"/> </manifest>
Update: This was a problem with the AndroidManifest.xml file, not a code over-ride.
