Changing Styles of Native Components

In /theme/defaultTheme folder, you can see the __applicationAndroidStyle.json file. This file contains the styles for the native components.

We can change the styles of the native components by editing this file. For example:

  • We can change the default navigation bar color with navigationBarColor property.

  • We can change the default status bar color with statusBarColor property.


  • colorPrimary – The color of the app bar.

  • colorPrimaryDark – The color of the status bar and contextual app bars; this is normally a dark version of colorPrimary.

  • colorAccent – The color of UI controls such as check boxes, radio buttons, and edit text boxes.

  • windowBackground – The color of the screen background.

  • textColorPrimary – The color of UI text in the app bar.

  • statusBarColor – The color of the status bar.

  • navigationBarColor – The color of the navigation bar.
