I'm trying to change the default color for the options menu which is white: I want a black background for every item on the options menu.
I've tried some shoots like android:itemBackground="#000000" on the item element within the menu element but it didn't work.
How can I accomplish this?
After spending a considerable amount of time trying all the options, the only way I was able to get an app using AppCompat v7 to change the overflow menu background was using the itemBackground attribute:
<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar"> ... <item name="android:itemBackground">@color/overflow_background</item> ... </style>
Tested from API 4.2 to 5.0.
