Android: Custom spinner does not show selected item

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – Problem is that an item selected in a spinner is rendered in white color, although I've set a color explicitly. I have no idea what to do. I've googled similar topics but they were solved by setting color. For me it didn't help. Here is my code: private View getFormView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) { View v = convertView; if (v == null) { LayoutInflater inflater = mA.getLayoutInflater(); v = inflater.inflate(R.layout.f_new_program_form, null); Spinner sp = (Spinner) v.findViewById(R.id.spinnerExercises); ExerciseSpinnerAdapter spAda (HowTos)
