HI i simply want to change color of button in the app using theme and manifest editor
here's my snippet


HTML:
CreateResource(values, theme.xml,
<resources>
    <style name="MyAppTheme" parent="@android:style/Theme.Material.Light.DarkActionBar">
        <item name="android:colorPrimary">#FF9800</item>
        <item name="android:colorPrimaryDark">#F57C00</item>
        <item name="android:colorAccent">#FFA726</item>
        <item name="buttonStyle">@style/Mybutton</item>
    </style>
    <style name="Mybutton" parent="@android:style/Widget.Material.Button">
        <item name="background">#ff0000</item>
    </style>
</resources>
    )
