Android Button color changes to another color



I am creating a simple quiz app. And want to change the color of button to green if answer is correct, and to red if answer is incorrect.If i change color through xml of layout it is normally changed, but when I write

   if (option1.getText().equals(correctAnswer)){
option1.setBackgroundColor(R.color.green);
Toast.makeText(this, "Answer is correct", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                 }

color changes but totally to another color (dark blue). Why colors are not changed as supposed?

themes.xml:

<resources xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools">
<!-- Base application theme. -->
<style name="Theme.IslomniOrganamiz" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
    <!-- Primary brand color. -->
    <item name="colorPrimary">@color/white</item>
    <item name="colorPrimaryVariant">@color/purple_700</item>
    <item name="colorOnPrimary">@color/white</item>
    <!-- Secondary brand color. -->
    <item name="colorSecondary">@color/teal_200</item>
    <item name="colorSecondaryVariant">@color/teal_700</item>
    <item name="colorOnSecondary">@color/black</item>
    <!-- Status bar color. -->
    <item name="android:statusBarColor" tools:targetApi="l">?attr/colorPrimaryVariant</item>
    <!-- Customize your theme here. -->
</style>

Answer

It happens because the method setBackgroundColor(@ColorInt int color) works with a @ColorInt, not a resource (@ColorRes)

Use:

button.setBackgroundColor(ContextCompat.getColor(this,R.color.xxxx));

or something like:

button.setBackgroundColor(Color.GREEN)
