[Android Lollipop 5.1.1 motog3] I cannot change color of my Status Bar

Hey guys, I Cannot change the color of my status bar.It always remains black in color.I have tried sliding a colored rectangle behind the status bar but the status bar part is always black. Any suggestions how can i change the color of my status bar on android platform 5.1.1 lollipop ?

I have followed this fusetools video but this aint working for me.



Fuse does not (yet) offer any way of styling the Android status bar. We will be exposing this functionality in later releases but we don’t have a schedule for when it will be ready.

An important side note: since Android didn’t offer any way of controlling status bar styling prior to Lollipop any Fuse settings for this will most likely be ignored on lower OS versions.

Sure would be looking forward.Lollipop and further versions would be great.Would love if both status bar and bottom bar gets the support.Can you just tell me atleast the expected time of fuse supporting this feature ?

As I mentioned we don’t yet have a schedule for this feature. There’s been a bit of internal discussion but no hard plans so far. It’s basically at the “Backlog” level.

We’ll let you know as soon as there are any news on this. :slight_smile:

Hie Remi, anything on this yet?


Implemented, but not released yet (as of 0.12.3), but in an upcoming release you can do:

<Android.StatusBarConfig Color="#f00" />

I’m confused why the new StatusBar, how come we couldn’t use: <StatusBarBackground Dock="Top" Color="#f00" />

You can also use this temp solution: https://www.fusetools.com/community/forums/bug_reports/android_statusbar_wont_change_color?page=1&highlight=fdb52a08-51fe-4fbd-867e-3948ef1cd962#post-fdb52a08-51fe-4fbd-867e-3948ef1cd962

Edwin: StatusBarBackground is a layout element which is used to block out the area you need to reserve for the status bar. You can give that a Color too, but on Android the native status bar itself can have an opaque color on top of your UI. Hence the StatusBarConfig to allow you to configure that separately.
