I have written an application that uses the ListActivity model. The default color scheme for this is a black background with gray type. When you tap on a row, it turns orange momentarily.
I notice that if I change the background of the LinearLayout - on which the application is based - to another background color, such as green, when I tap on a row, it doesn't change color at all.
Is there a property that controls this? I haven't seen one. I would hate to think that the developer has to make that flash of color appear programmatically, but I'm steeling myself should that be the answer.
