DataPicker looks like old design on new API's as well

view full story

http://stackoverflow.com – So the problem is very simple: I have integrated a DataPicker in my application. Not as a DialogDataPicker but as a View component (more precisely a View inside of a Fragment that is dynamically shown and removed from a FrameLayout contained in my main FragmentActiviy layout.). now my problem is that this DataPicker looks like this: and not like this: even when I target the higher API's, I tried setting my Min SDK to 16 or 17 as well but it didn't do any help either. Some one know why it happens? and how can I show the new look of the data picker? preferably on old versions of Android (HowTos)
