I have spent almost 10 days searching for a tutorial or any help describing how to add a color picker to my Clock Widget.
 
My widget is a simple clock with 7 colors, but I want to make it completely usable free. "the user chooses what color he/she like", "the clock, NOT the background".
 
Could you please direct me and help me to find the way to make it like that?
 
Manifest:
 
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.koshmen.clock.aimen"
android:versionCode="3"
android:versionName="1.2" >
 
<uses-sdk
    android:minSdkVersion="8"
    android:targetSdkVersion="16" />
 
<supports-screens
    android:anyDensity="true"
    android:largeScreens="true"
    android:normalScreens="true"
    android:resizeable="true"

    android:xlargeScreens="true" />
 
<application
    android:allowBackup="true"

    <receiver android:name=".Clock_ActionsC" android:icon="@drawable/cicon" android:label="JB White">

        </intent-filter>
        <meta-data android:name="android.appwidget.provider"
            android:previewImage="@drawable/cpreview_black" 
            android:resource="@xml/cblwidget_config" />
    </receiver>
    <receiver android:name=".Clock_ActionsC_B" android:icon="@drawable/cbicon" android:label="JB Blue">

        </intent-filter>
        <meta-data android:name="android.appwidget.provider"
            android:previewImage="@drawable/cpreview_red"

    </receiver>
    <receiver android:name=".Clock_ActionsC_P" android:icon="@drawable/cpicon" android:label="JB Pink">

        <meta-data android:name="android.appwidget.provider"

    </receiver>
    <receiver android:name=".Clock_ActionsC_G" android:icon="@drawable/cgicon" android:label="JB Green">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE" />
        </intent-filter>
        <meta-data android:name="android.appwidget.provider"
            android:previewImage="@drawable/cpreview_green" 
            android:resource="@xml/cgwidget_config" />
    </receiver>
    <receiver android:name=".Clock_ActionsC_Y" android:icon="@drawable/cyicon" android:label="JB Yellow">
        <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.appwidget.action.APPWIDGET_UPDATE" />
        </intent-filter>
        <meta-data android:name="android.appwidget.provider"
            android:previewImage="@drawable/cpreview_yellow" 
            android:resource="@xml/cywidget_config" />
    </receiver>
</application>
 
And this the .class for the BLUE Clock:
 
public class Clock_ActionsC_B extends AppWidgetProvider{
 
public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
{
    String action = intent.getAction();
    PendingIntent pendingIntent;
    if (AppWidgetManager.ACTION_APPWIDGET_UPDATE.equals(action))
    {
 
        RemoteViews views = new RemoteViews(context.getPackageName(),
                R.layout.cbmain);
 
        pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(context, 0,getAlarmPackage(context), 0);
        views.setOnClickPendingIntent(R.id.analogClock1, pendingIntent);
 
        AppWidgetManager
                .getInstance(context)
                .updateAppWidget(
                        intent.getIntArrayExtra(AppWidgetManager.EXTRA_APPWIDGET_IDS),
                        views);
    }
}
 
public Intent getAlarmPackage(Context context)
{
    PackageManager packageManager = context.getPackageManager();
    Intent AlarmClockIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN).addCategory(Intent.CATEGORY_LAUNCHER);
 
    String clockImpls[][] = {
            { "Standard Alarm", "com.android.alarmclock",
                    "com.android.alarmclock.AlarmClock" },
            { "HTC Alarm ClockDT", "com.htc.android.worldclock",
                    "com.htc.android.worldclock.WorldClockTabControl" },
            { "Standard Alarm ClockDT", "com.android.deskclock",
                    "com.android.deskclock.AlarmClock" },
            { "Froyo Nexus Alarm ClockDT",
                    "com.google.android.deskclock",
                    "com.android.deskclock.DeskClock" },
            { "Moto Blur Alarm ClockDT",
                    "com.motorola.blur.alarmclock",
                    "com.motorola.blur.alarmclock.AlarmClock" },
            { "Samsung Galaxy S", "com.sec.android.app.clockpackage",
                    "com.sec.android.app.clockpackage.ClockPackage" } };
 
    boolean foundClockImpl = false;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < clockImpls.length; i++)
    {
        String packageName = clockImpls[i][1];
        String className = clockImpls[i][2];
        try
        {
            ComponentName cn = new ComponentName(packageName, className);
            packageManager.getActivityInfo(cn,PackageManager.GET_META_DATA);
            AlarmClockIntent.setComponent(cn);
            foundClockImpl = true;
        } catch (NameNotFoundException nf)
        {
        }
    }
    if (foundClockImpl)
    {
        return AlarmClockIntent;
    }
    else
    {
        return null;
    }
}
 
This tutorial http://wptrafficanalyzer.in/blog/android-home-screen-app-widget-with-onclick-event/[^] was a perfect for me, BUT I could't change "I didn't know" how to make it change the clock color it self, NOT the background of that clock.
