Android Build a Simple Android App Creating the Screen Layout Setting Colors

what is the value of the color white in the android background?

I am writing a code and I need help with the value of white to change the color of the text.

activity_main.xml
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  android:background="@android:color/white" >

  <TextView
    android:id="@+id/textView1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:text="Treehouse loves me!"
    android:textSize="72sp" 
    android:textColor="white"/>

</RelativeLayout>

Hi Daniel,

Use the same code as in the RelativeLayout's background property:

<TextView
  .
  .
  android:textColor="@android:color/white" />

Make sense?

Steve.
