How base colors in Lollipop apply to different UI elements
View Android Lollipop Widget Tinting Guide
Unless specified otherwise, all of the below tinting applies to both Lollipop and pre-Lollipop using AppCompat v21. To use the support version of these attributes, remove the android namespace. For instance, "android:colorControlNormal" becomes "colorControlNormal". These attributes will be propagated to their corresponding attributes within the android namespace for devices running Lollipop. Any exceptions to this will be noted by including the "android:" prefix.
All Clickable Views:
-----------
* ripple effect (Lollipop only) -- "colorControlHighlight"
Status Bar:
------------
* background (Lollipop only) - "colorPrimaryDark"
