i searched an entire day for this problem, no workaround worked and I would like some fresh pair of eyes to take a look at this. I am using Android 3.2 and theme Holo.Light with ActionBar(important).

My layout xml:

In Android Manifest file:

In themes.xml file:

In styles.xml file:

Now here I tried with my own colors, red, blue...colors that would stand out.

The result is ... nothing. It changes nothing, when i write chars in the autocomplete, i can see it is completing as i go but the dropdown item text color is not seen at all. It's transparent, or white on white(on real device).

I am not able to understand what i am doing wrong. Did someone resolved this problem before? Please any clues would be great. Thank you anyway.
