Android Question

Toolbar and TabLayout is not visible on Android 4.4 devices

I was trying to implement Toolbar and TabLayout using google design library by referring to [http://blog.grafixartist.com/material-design-tabs-with-android-design-support-library/] [blog].

Output works as expected on Lollipop devices but it doesnot show ToolBar and TabLayout on Kitkat devices. But i can still swipe through 3 fragment as expected on kitkat device as well. How come same code written using google support libraries works differently on different devices!

I tried referring to [Toolbar is not visible on Android 4.X devices [solved] question but it didn't solve the problem. I tried running the code in emulator with API 19 but facing same issue on that as well.

I have added

'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:22.2.0'
,
'com.android.support:support-v4:22.2.0'
and
'com.android.support:design:22.2.0'
dependencies in the project.

 <style name="ParallaxTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
    <item name="windowActionBar">false</item>
    <item name="windowNoTitle">true</item>
</style>
