Make status bar icon dark

Hi, I want to make the status bar icons dark as i am using a white status bar. I searched the community for the solution and tried every ways in there. Already tried using timer. But it is not working. It is working fine when using in companion. but when export to apk, icons remains white. Anyone know the solution?

Do you need the clock ?

App is not even running when i used that. It shows runtime error.Capture

Tested on companion, android 9, no error. Better ask the developer @Salman_Dev

the hex color of BackgroundColor should be #ffffff

Hello @Seller_Newbie,

I recommend this extension more over the others. It works for a majority of Android™[1] and has what you’re looking for! I hope I could be of help.

1 Reflex only supports API 23 and higher.
