Action Bar's onClick listener for the Home button

How can I implement a custom

onClickListener
for the Home button of the Action Bar?

I already did a
getSupportActionBar().setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled(true);
and now I want to redirect the user to a certain activity in case the Home button is clicked.

I tried with:

@Override
public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
switch (item.getItemId()) {
case android.R.id.home:
item.setOnMenuItemClickListener(new OnMenuItemClickListener() {
public boolean onMenuItemClick(MenuItem item) {
Intent i = new Intent();
i.setClass(BestemmingActivity.this, StartActivity.class);
i.setFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TOP);
startActivity(i);
return true;
}
});
default:
return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
}
}


but it never enters in the
onMenuItemClick
.

Basically, it's done just like in this link but still it doesn't enter in the listener.

Answer

Fixed: no need to use a setOnMenuItemClickListener. Just pressing the button, it creates and launches the activity through the intent.

Thanks a lot everybody for your help!
