What to use instead of getResources().getColor() because this is now deprecated


In this blog,
I have talked about what to use instead of a deprecated function of getColor.
getResources().getColor(R.color.color_name) is deprecated in API level 23.
So, we can use getColor(int, Theme) instead.


you can use the ContextCompat.getColor() which is part of the Support V4 Library (so it will work for all the previous API).

instead of

getColor method

Returns a color connected with a particular resource ID.

    Excellent service! I bought Opencart mobile apps from mobikul and also customize the app on our requirements. I recommend this company.
