Embarcadero released some new styles for Delphi XE7 Firemonkey with support for the Android 5 Lollipop look. There are three styles included which are a Dark style, a Dark Blue style, and a Light style. Sarina DuPont has a blog post up which highlights the styles and includes a code snippet on how to apply them to Android 5 devices. In the code snippet you basically detect which version of Android is running and then set the form StyleBook property to a TStyleBook that contains one of these three styles. We’ve talked about Android 5 Lollipop support in Delphi XE7 Firemonkey before here and you can download a Hotfix for Delphi XE7 which fixes a minor issue with Android 5 support. There are not many users running Android 5 right now according to statistics but that will only increase as time goes by. These styles probably also work in Appmethod.
