I think i have to do it in the manifest, but i have to keep the appcompat theme.

Thanks

to change the checkbox and switch color i used:

B4X:
SetApplicationAttribute(android:theme, "@style/MyAppTheme")
CreateResource(values, colors.xml,
<resources>
   <color name="actionbar">#FFB30037</color>
   <color name="statusbar">#FFFFD2DE</color>
   <color name="textColorPrimary">#ffffffff</color>
   <color name="navigationBar">#FFB30037</color>
</resources>
)
CreateResource(values, theme.xml,
<resources>
    <style name="MyAppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light">
       <item name="colorPrimary">#FFFF0000</item>
       <item name="android:buttonTint">#FF876DFF</item>
       <item name="colorControlActivated">#FF876DFF</item>
    </style>
</resources>
)
And added this two lines:

B4X:
<item name="android:buttonTint">#FF876DFF</item>
       <item name="colorControlActivated">#FF876DFF</item>
But i don't know how to change the color for the MaterialDateTImePIcker..
I saw that there is the method: "ColoAccent2" to set the color, but it accept only string, not int.. what i have to write? hex code?

Edit:
To color the MaterialDateTimePicker, you have to use the method "ColorAccent2", and the string you have to put is the color hex (# way, not 0x) code without alpha level

Ex: DTP.ColorAccent2 = "#56a1d3"
