Styles and Themes in Android
Now add an item element to the styles that sets the text color of the Button to blue. Hint:Use android :text Color as the attribute name and #0000ff as the hex code for blue
<resources xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"> <style name ="TweetButton"> <item name="android:textColor"#0000ff> </resources>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" > <Button android:id="@+id/sendButton" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="@string/send_button_label" /> </RelativeLayout>

The item element is a child of the style element in XML, so what you need to do is pass the blue value in directly as a value, but not as its own attribute. Like this.
<resources xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"> <style name ="TweetButton"> <item name = "android:textColor">#0000ff</item> </style> </resources>
Item has a closing tag and isn't self closing. That's how the style knows how to recognise styles and settings :)
