Change ActionBar text color

I want to change my ActionBar color to blue (#0c01e3). My code is working because the actionbar background property is doing its job. But the text won't change. Any ideas? I'm using ABS.

<style name="MyActionBar1" parent="Widget.Sherlock.Light.ActionBar.Solid.Inverse">
        <item name="android:backgroundSplit">#06e301</item>
        <item name="android:backgroundStacked">#06e301</item>
        <item name="android:background">#06e301</item>
        <item name="background">#06e301</item>
        <item name="backgroundSplit">#B9001F</item>
        <item name="android:textColor">#0c01e3</item>




On the theme, there is an attribute, actionItemTextColor, which controls this color.

Remember to specify it with and without the android: prefix when using ActionBarSherlock.

Set this in your Java Page .It works for me

ActionBar ab = getActionBar();    
 ab.setTitle(Html.fromHtml("<font color='#ffffff'>App Name</font>"));

add this and then try

    <item name="android:textColor">#ffffff</item>

To improve on the answer of @IntelliJ Amiya:

            Html.fromHtml("<font color='" + getResources().getColor(R.color.my_color) + "'>"
                    + getString(R.string.title_home) + "</font>"));

If you want to change that using xml ... This is what worked for me ...

<style name="MyActionBar"
    <item name="android:background">@color/titleBarBgColor</item>
    <item name="android:titleTextStyle">@style/EldTheme.ActionBar.TitleTextStyle</item>
    <item name="android:subtitleTextStyle">@style/EldTheme.ActionBar.TitleTextStyle</item>
    <!-- Support library compatibility -->
    <item name="background">@color/titleBarBgColor</item>
    <item name="titleTextStyle">@style/EldTheme.ActionBar.TitleTextStyle</item>
    <item name="subtitleTextStyle">@style/EldTheme.ActionBar.TitleTextStyle</item>
<style name="EldTheme.ActionBar.TitleTextStyle" parent="@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Widget.ActionBar.Title">
    <item name="android:textColor">@color/titleBarTextColor</item>
