I'm trying to do some things on the Action Bar in Android
I've already added new items in the right side of the action bar
How can I change the left side of the action bar? I want to change the icon and the text, and I want to add a "Back Button" in the action bar for the other screens
Thanks in advance
This is very simple to accomplish
If you want to change it in code, call:
setTitle("My new title"); getActionBar().setIcon(R.drawable.my_icon);
And set the values to whatever you please.
Or, in the Android manifest XML file:
<activity android:name=".MyActivity" android:icon="@drawable/my_icon" android:label="My new title" />
To enable the back button in your app use:
The code should all be placed in your
onCreate so that the label/icon changing is transparent to the user, but in reality it can be called anywhere during the activity's lifecycle.
