Hi there, abhijeet singh! You don't need the @android:color part :) Just the hexadecimal value. This is likely to be some shade not defined by Android. In that case, you can add your color directly using hexadecimal values.

You need:

android:background="#fff092b0"

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thankyou
