I need to use resources in order to support different
BuildVars, so I have
Color.kt file where I define my colors, the problem is that if I get a color from the resources
colors.xml like this
val MyWhiteColor: Color = Color(R.color.my_white_color)
and use it like this
text = ...,
style = TextStyle(
color = MyWhiteColor
I get blue color instead of white, however, if I change the implementation to
val MyWhiteColor: Color = Color(android.graphics.Color.parseColor("#FFFFFF"))
it works as expected and I get white color.
What am I missing? Why when I get the value from
colors.xml the color converts to blue?

You can either just define your colors in Color.kt without XML color resources or you can load from a resource in a composable using:
