Action bar does not show

I tried to implement an action bar in my application.

menu.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

<item
android:id="@+id/itemAdd"
android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText"
android:title="ADD">
</item>
<item
android:id="@+id/itemRefresh"
android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText"
android:title="REFRESH">
</item>
<item
android:id="@+id/itemHelp"
android:title="HELP">
</item>

</menu>


And created menu

@Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
super.onCreateOptionsMenu(menu);
getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.menu, menu);
return true;
}


enter image description here

But it does not show the action bar even if
minSdkVersion
is 11. What is the reason?

Answer

Remove your theme for your actionbar activity in androidManifest file. Now it will work...

<application
    android:allowBackup="true"
    android:icon="@drawable/tasktodo"
    android:label="@string/app_name"
    >

Don't add any theme in your application manifest file. If you added one, please remove and try running it...
