7. Styling

The library supports day-night modes. The dependents may use the following styling attributes to create a dedicated style for AboutPage. If the dependents choose not to specify an explicit style, the library falls back to sensible defaults.

First, declare an AboutPage style in your styles.xml.

<!-- Define a global style for AboutPage in your 'styles.xml' -->
<style name="Widget.App.AboutPage" parent="about_About">
  <item name="aboutBackground">#ffffff</item>
  <item name="aboutElementIconTint">#333333</item>
  <item name="aboutSeparatorColor">#999999</item>
  <item name="aboutDescriptionTextAppearance">@style/TextAppearance.App.AboutPage.Description</item>

  <!-- similarly, you can also apply the following text appearances -->
  <item name="aboutElementTextAppearance">@style/about_elementTextAppearance.Dark</item>
  <item name="aboutGroupTextAppearance">@style/about_groupTextAppearance</item>
</style>

<style name="TextAppearance.App.AboutPage.Description" parent="about_descriptionTextAppearance.Dark">
  <item name="android:textStyle">bold|italic</item>
</style>

To apply this style globally, assign its reference to aboutStyle attribute in your app theme.

<style name="Theme.App" parent="Theme.AppCompat">
  <item name="aboutStyle">@style/Widget.AboutPage</item>
</style>

Or explicitly pass the style resource to the AboutPage constructor to apply it on selective AboutPage instances.

AboutPage aboutPage = new AboutPage(context, R.style.Widget_AboutPage);

8. Force Night/Day mode

We recommend that the dependents use AppCompatDelegate.setDefaultNightMode() to force enable/disable the night mode across their apps. If the dependents are unable to use the recommended approach, they can use the AboutPage(Context, boolean) constructor to specify the desired mode. The dependents must note that by using this constructor, the AboutPage will use its default styles, ignoring any explicitly specified style.

AboutPage aboutPage = AboutPage(context, true); // force enable dark mode.
AboutPage aboutPage = AboutPage(context, false); // force enable bright mode.
