How to give an attractive background



Background comes in the category of theme. So basically you want to change the theme. For any theme amendment such as background color etc. you need to include a new android xml file in your project.

Go to resource folder named as ‘rsc’ under which there is a folder named as ‘value’ right click on the folder and click on file. A window appears. Write the name color .xml. Keep on main you have to give extension along with the name. Now click on create button.

Below is the sample code. Follow it or write it in the color.xml.

<?xml version=”1.0” encoding=”utf-8”?>


<color name=”background”>#3534ffff</color>


Now use this resource on main.xml.
