Answer

You are going to need to make one more xml file which contains your toolbar: Name of this xml is toolbar

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/toolbar"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:background="?attr/colorPrimary"/>

Now change your relative layout's include tag like this

<include
    layout="@layout/toolbar"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>

And in your activity, do something like this:

Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
