I am attempting to use the Support Action Bar. I have followed all the instructions on how to include the support library in Android Studio v 0.3.0. My build.gradle's dependencies look like:
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: '*.jar')
Gradle: No resource found that matches the given name (at 'theme' with value '@android:style/Theme.AppCompat').
Remove the "android:" prefix.
Styles and Themes not included in your minimum API level will not be there. So if you're minimum API level is 8 (Froyo), then any time you prefix a resource with "android:" it's going to look in the android "res" folder for platform-8 (android-sdk\platforms\android-8\data\res).
Lastly, the main reason why you need to use the AppCompat library is because the "Theme.Holo" does not exist in your platform "res" folder unless you raise your minimum API level to 11 (Honeycomb).
