How to Change Listview Item Color in Android

The idea is to create an a list item xml, and give it the design choices you want. If you want to change the list item color, use this xml code android:textColor="@android:color/holo_orange_dark". If you want to change the text to italic or bold, use this xml android:textStyle="italic|bold". And even if you want to change the font itself, you can by this font-family property in xml android:fontFamily="sans-serif-condensed". Now, you got the idea. Let’s build a sample application to illustrate this more practically. create Android app in Android Studio use this XML as a res/layout/activity_main.xml. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android="" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:orientation="vertical"> <TextView android:id="@+id/textView" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:fontFamily="sans-serif-condensed" android:textColor="@android:color/holo_orange_dark" android:textSize="24sp" android:textStyle="italic|bold" /> </LinearLayout> use this Kotlin code in your src/MainActivity.
