showing - what is setsupportactionbar in android




setSupportActionBar toolbar cannot be applied to(android.widget.Toolbar) error (7)

I've been looking for an answer and I've tried many possible solutions, but nothing seems to work..

I'm trying to setup a Material Action Bar following this tutorial.

Here's my code:

tool_bar.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:background="@color/ColorPrimary"
    android:elevation="4dp">

</android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar>

activity.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/drawer_layout"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:background="#FFFFFF">
    <!-- The main content view -->
    <RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:orientation="vertical">

        <include
            android:id="@+id/app_bar"
            layout="@layout/tool_bar" />
    </RelativeLayout>
    <!-- Navigation Drawer -->
    <ListView
        android:id="@+id/left_drawer"
        android:layout_width="220dp"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_gravity="left"
        android:background="#1C1C1C"
        android:divider="@android:color/darker_gray"
        android:dividerHeight="1dp" />

</android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout>

And finally my activity.java:

import android.app.ActionBar;
import android.support.v7.app.ActionBarActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.widget.Toolbar;


public class rutaActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

private Toolbar toolbar;
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_ruta);

        getSupportActionBar().hide();//Ocultar ActivityBar anterior

        toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.app_bar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar); //HERE'S THE PROBLEM !!!!

Error:

setSupporActionBar (android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar) in ActionBarActivity cannot be applied to (android.widget.Toolbar)

How can I fix this?


Adding import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar to the import list resolve this issue.

Then add the toolbar widget layout file:

<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
    android:id="@+id/list_toolbar"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:background="?attr/colorPrimary"
    android:minHeight="?attr/actionBarSize"
    android:theme="?attr/actionBarTheme"
    />

In onCreate method of java code

//call to

Tootbar toolbar = findViewById(R.id.toolbar); setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

Certify that your Manifest declaration includes android:theme="@style/AppTheme.NoActionBar" tag, like the following:

<activity
    android:name=".PointsScreen"
    android:theme="@style/AppTheme.NoActionBar">
</activity>

I was using previously this code:

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

and extended AppCompatActivity also but I was getting the same error. So in place of using Toolbar class, I have imported the below class and it worked for me:

android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar

I'm having the same problem. My Logcat says

java.lang.IllegalStateException: This Activity already has an action bar supplied by the window decor

I have already an action bar so when i use setSupportActionBar(toolbar); my app gets an error for this conflict. To fix this problem add NoActionBar in your app theme style resource file.

Change this

<style name="ParentMaterialTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light">

To this

<style name="ParentMaterialTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">


In using toolbar you should extends AppCompatActivity and then import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar


In your Activity.java import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar instead of android.widget.Toolbar:

import android.app.ActionBar;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar;


public class rutaActivity extends AppCompactActivity {

private Toolbar toolbar;
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_ruta);

    getSupportActionBar().hide();//Ocultar ActivityBar anterior

    toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.app_bar);
    setSupportActionBar(toolbar); //NO PROBLEM !!!!

import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar; import it into your java class
