android - How to prevent AlertDialog using custom theme from appearing fullscreen?


I am using a custom style for my AlertDialogs, but it is making them appear fullscreen. I've searched around, but I could only seem to find people wanting to make it fullscreen...

Here is my style

<style name="MyDialog" parent="AlertDialog.AppCompat">
    <item name="android:background">@color/material_dark</item>
    <item name="android:layout_height">100dp</item>
    <item name="android:textColor">@color/accent</item>
    <item name="android:textColorPrimary">@color/material_white</item>

And one of my AlertDialogs.

AlertDialog alertDialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(this.getContext(),
            .setTitle(this.getContext().getResources().getString(R.string.reset) + "?")
            .setPositiveButton(getString(R.string.yes), (dialog, which) -> {
            .setNegativeButton(getString(R.string.notReally), (dialog, which) ->{
                //Do nothing

And this is what it looks like. I cannot figure out why it takes up the entire screen. It should look like an AlertDialog just with custom colors.
