Hello all. I am currently running a custom 4.4.4 rom on my d2lte and I am having a really annoying issue. Every rom, theme, or display option I change, hyperlinks in Google Play and some halo based roms (such as reddit sync, messaging, etc.) always show up white. I have confirmed this issue with SOKP and with C-Rom and another rom whose name I cannot remember. But each rom seems to have the same, reoccurring, annoying issue. Links will appear as if they aren't even there, but once tapped, they do work. It is just immensely frustrating to not be able to see links on Google Play or in my messages.

Does anyone else have this issue or know how I can fix it? I have scoured Google and duckduckgo for some answers, but I couldn't find any, unfortunately. Perhaps there is some sort of modification I can do to change the global hyperlink color (or an xposed module that could help me do this)?

Add this (android:textColorLink="#000000") to your TextView (Replace #000000 with chosen colour code)

How do I go about doing this? What file am I editing and where can I find it? Is this a file that will globally change the hyperlink colors, or is it a per-app thing?

This will change it for all apps and to edit it you need to use TextView

Okay... Where is the file I am supposed to be editing? Do I need to recompile something? When I give Google a quick search for TextView, all I see is development stuff and xml files...

Sorry, apparently you can't edit the colour as mentioned here:https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...rs/XCw0uKhcE5A

Hopefully it will be fixed in an update

Hello,

I have the same problem (ROM is SOKP) and it also applies to some numbers (e.g. in whatsapp or price tags in play store).

Greetings
