 <color name="green">#11c403</color> <color name="green_dark">#0e8c05</color> <color name="white">#ffffff</color> <color name="white_transparent_40">#64ffffff</color> <color name="black">#000000</color> <color name="black_transparent_40">#64000000</color> <color name="grey_disabled">#d5d5d5</color> ...
