[] Action bar implementation which uses the native action bar on Android 4.0+ and a custom implementation on pre-4.0 through a single API and theme.

Overview

DEPRECATED

ActionBarSherlock is deprecated. No more development will be taking place. For an up-to-date action bar backport use AppCompat.

Thanks for all your support!

ActionBarSherlock

ActionBarSherlock is an standalone library designed to facilitate the use of the action bar design pattern across all versions of Android through a single API.

The library will automatically use the native ActionBar implementation on Android 4.0 or later. For previous versions which do not include ActionBar, a custom action bar implementation based on the sources of Ice Cream Sandwich will automatically be wrapped around the layout. This allows you to easily develop an application with an action bar for every version of Android from 2.x and up.

See http://actionbarsherlock.com for more information.

  • Search View Widget Crashes in ICS and above

    Search View Widget Crashes in ICS and above

    When using the Search View Widget as a Action View in the latest sherlock with Ice Cream Sandwich or above it crashes complaining about a layout file.

    I've fixed it by setting the code in my activity that uses a plain button for Eclair (As google recommends), The sherlock implementation from Froyo to Honeycomb and then the native one from Ice Cream Upwards.

    I think the Sherlock Implementation should wrap around the native widget by default or is this not possible ? At least it should throw an error complaining it isn't compatible with anything newer than Honeycomb and the user should use the Native Widget

  • Heap size increases on every screen orientation change

    Heap size increases on every screen orientation change

    I use ActionBarSherlock (4.0.0, from yesterday 4.0.1) in a project that is being developed and debugged on the phone with Android 2.2. Today I opened DDMS tab in Eclipse, turned on the Update Heap option and noticed that at every turn of the screen heap size and the number of objects in memory increases.

    Then I temporarily removed ABS from the project - a memory leak problem disappeared.

    Next, I tried to compile one of the ABS demo projects named "styled" and run it on the same phone with Android 2.2. With each new turn of the screen, I saw again in the DDMS increase in the number of objects and the heap size.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but maybe it's a memory leak in the ABS?

  • Actionbar changes are not properly handled if activity has android:configChanges=

    Actionbar changes are not properly handled if activity has android:configChanges="orientation"

    I have one activity that has

    android:configChanges="orientation"
    

    and in the menu has

    android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText"
    

    The expected behaviour is that when the screen is in portrait i see just the icon and when it is in landscape i see also the text at the right of the action bar icon. It works on 4.0.3 but Android 2.3.7 when i rotate the screen it doesn't update the action bar icon.

  • No ActionBar implementation found when testing using Robolectric

    No ActionBar implementation found when testing using Robolectric

    When ActionBarSherlock looks for an implementation, it bases the decision on the Build.VERSION.SDK_INT constant. When running tests using Robolectric, this constant is set to zero, which means no implementation will be found and an exception is thrown:

    java.lang.IllegalStateException: No implementations match configuration.
    

    It'd be great if ABS could detect that SDK_INT is zero and still return an implementation. It probably wouldn't be functional, but it would at least provide something that Robolectric could mock over.

    What do you think ABS' behavior should be in this situation? I can whip up a pull request if I know it'll get merged.

    Thanks for your work on ABS!

  • FragmentActivity - options menu not respecting Fragment lifecycle

    FragmentActivity - options menu not respecting Fragment lifecycle

    When using the support lib plugin FragmentActivity with a Fragment based ViewPager, I get weird behavior when the fragments provide their options menu to the hosting Activity's action bar:

    • The initial menu actions for the 1st fragment loaded into the ViewPager work fine.
    • As soon as a 2nd fragment is paged into the UI, the menu actions become unresponsive.
    • As soon as a 3rd fragment is paged into the UI, the actions that I tried to press for fragment #2 will fire, and so on.
    • Orientation change yields similar results to fragment paging.
    • There is a subtle visible artifact when a 2nd fragment is loaded, as if the new action items are being drawn over previous ones.

    I am using a standard FragmentPagerAdapter pattern in my code. I have created a simple example project demonstrating this issue from the Google SupportDemos sample. It works flawlessly on my Galaxy Nexus with the native action bar, on anything else I get have the issues described above. I am using the ABS 4 RC1 library & support lib.

    The Action Items are working fine when the activity first created. But if I flip the fragment quickly, at some point all Action Items will be disappeared. The Action Items can only be restored if you change the orientation of the phone.

    Tiny issue - naming convention not applied on some resources

    There are 2 files in the "res/layout" folder (and "layout-v14" folder) that do not have the "abs__" prefix (while all other resources do have this prefix), which makes some confusion as it does belong to the library:

    -sherlock_spinner_dropdown_item.xml -sherlock_spinner_item.xml

    Please consider renaming those files. maybe there are other files/resources too that I didn't notice.

  • Tab size issue with Android 7.0

    Tab size issue with Android 7.0

    We are still using the ActionBarSherlock (and currently cannot change to anything else due to customer restrictions) but with the recent release of Android 7.0, we are seeing issues on 'certain' Samsung devices like the Note 5 and the Galaxy 7 Edge. The tab strip is being reduced in size and I have not found any way to increase the size back to normal. Other devices like Nexus 5x (also on Android 7.0) does not see this issue. And we haven't had this issue with previous versions of Android.

    I haven't been able to find search results that might help me do a work around for this (either by resetting the tab strip to the correct height, or being able to determine when this condition might exist so maybe I could reduce the size of the images if needed). I'm looking for any help I can get on this since our client is making this an urgent issue. The first image I'm attaching is the way it's being displayed on these certain devices, and the second image is how it should be looking. bad tab buttons good tab buttons

    Black area is showing at left side in Action Bar Sherlock

    Hello I am using Sherlock library to achieve the ActionBar Tabs. Here I am setting custom title and want to hide the icon at the title bar but some issue that ActionBar tabs now appearing at above of ActionBar.

    I see this issue here https://github.com/JakeWharton/ActionBarSherlock/issues/327#ref-issue-7764467

    so I am trying to solve this issue using that working but that is creating other issue.

    @Override public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_tariff_plans_layout);

    ActionBar actionBar = getSupportActionBar();
    
    if(Build.VERSION.SDK_INT <= Build.VERSION_CODES.HONEYCOMB) {
        actionBar.setLogo(new ColorDrawable(Color.TRANSPARENT)); 
    
        View homeIcon = findViewById(
                Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.HONEYCOMB ? 
                android.R.id.home : R.id.abs__home);
        ((View) homeIcon.getParent()).setVisibility(View.GONE);
        ((View) homeIcon).setVisibility(View.GONE);
    }
    
    actionBar.setDisplayShowHomeEnabled(false);
    actionBar.setDisplayShowTitleEnabled(false);
    
    View actionbar = LayoutInflater.from(this).inflate(R.layout.custom_title_bar, null);
    getSupportActionBar().setCustomView(actionbar);
    actionBar.setDisplayShowCustomEnabled(true);
    

    } but here now ActionBar title is looking like below, see there is left black area so I am looking to remove this with my color so my question Is there any way to remove that black area ?

    custom_title_bar.xml

    Below Android 3.0, I am having that issue but that is working perfectly above Android OS 3.0.

  • 3.3.1(Aug 14, 2013)

    ADT 14 is now required. Maven 3 is required if building from the command line.

    • XML-defined onClick attributes will now check for an onClick method that takes an android.support.v4.view.MenuItem instance.
    • Tabs on medium screens in landscape now display inline rather than below the action bar to mirror how Android 4.0 behaves with the same configuration.
    • Fix: Menu inflater properly checks activity context for onClick method declared in the XML.
    • Fix: Dialog fragment properly saves its showDialog state when not being used as a popup.
    • Fix: Return -1 when in tab navigation but no tab is selected. This brings the library in line with the post-3.0 behavior.

    • Fix: Fragments adjacent to the currently selected fragment in a ViewPager no longer receive context menu events.
    • Fix: Eliminate exception when inflating context menus on 3.0+ when using getMenuInflater().
    • Fix: ViewPager now determines whether or not an activity menu invalidation is required independently of whether or not fragments were created or destroyed. This should fix an edge case where an activity with a ViewPager containing only two fragments would not get its menu properly invalidated.

  • 3.2.0(Aug 14, 2013)

    • Added support for MapView and the Google APIs through the use of FragmentMapActivity. If you are using a map within a fragment you must ensure it is always attached to an activity which extends from this new base class.

    Since supporting maps requires compiling against the Google APIs, this functionality is implemented in the form of a plugin which is to be used alongside the normal library. You can choose to add it as an additional library project or by including it as a .jar. Maven users may simply include the additional dependency (artifactId: plugin-maps).

    • Fix: Fragments adjacent to the currently selected fragment in a ViewPager no longer contribute to the activity menu.
    • ActionBar.Tab has been changed from an interface to an abstract class to mirror its native counterpart.

    • Fix: Incorrect sub-menu item being selected by default when the sub-menu was triggered from the native options menu on pre-3.0.
    • Fix: MenuItem.setVisible now properly updates the associated action item and native menu item visible state.
    • Fix: Adding items to a menu now honors its ordering and category.
    • Fix: Fragment options item selected callback now uses the proper version of MenuItem.

    • Fix: MenuItem.getMenuInfo() was throwing runtime exception. Will now just return null.

    • Fix: Retained fragments not being re-attached on pre-3.0 when attached to android.R.id.content upon activity recreation.
    • Fix: onPrepareOptionsMenu not dispatched to fragments. This still will only occur if the activity method returns true (which is the default).
    • Fix: Menu.findItem not returning null when the item was not found on Android 3.0+.
    Source code(tar.gz)

  • 3.1.0(Aug 14, 2013)

    Due to shortcomings in the Android theming system, a small change must be made in how this library handles themes. If you were using a custom style for actionBarStyle you must now specify its attributes in the root of the theme and prefix them with 'ab'.

    You can see an example of this in the SherlockCustom theme in samples/demos/res/values/styles.xml.

    • Library now uses the r3 version of the compatibility library for its base.
    • actionBarStyle is no longer a valid theme attribute (see note above).
    • Added the demo project included with the new compatibility library under samples/demos/ and merged in the old 'featuredemo'.
    • Dividers are now shown on pre-3.0 devices between all action items.
    • Window.FEATURE_ACTION_BAR_OVERLAY is now honored on pre-3.0 devices.
    • Inflation of XML menu resources will now honor android:actionLayout and android:actionViewClass attributes.
    • Buttons for displaying the determinate and indeterminate progress bars have been added to the feature toggle demo.
    • Added support for indeterminate progress bar. Due to the final modifier on the native type, you must use setIndeterminateProgressBarVisibility(Boolean) and pass Boolean.TRUE or Boolean.FALSE.
    • Fix: MenuBuilder#removeItem(int) and MenuBuilder#findItem(int) throwing IndexOutOfBoundsExceptions when the item was not found.
    • Fix: Theme attributes for home item data (e.g., icon, logo) will not be overwritten by the special MenuItem instance for home.
    • Fix: Native strings can now be specified for an XML menu <item> in android:title and android:titleCondensed.
    • Window.FEATURE_ENABLE_ACTION_BAR_WATSON_TEXT is now Window.FEATURE_ACTION_BAR_ITEM_TEXT.
    • Widget.Sherlock.Spinner.DropDown.ActionBar and Widget.Sherlock.Light.Spinner.DropDown.ActionBar styles are now Widget.Sherlock.Spinner and Widget.Sherlock.Light.Spinner, respectively.
    • Widget.Sherlock.ActionBarView_TabXXX styles are now Widget.Sherlock.ActionBar.TabXXX.

  • 3.0.3(Aug 14, 2013)

    This version is a hotfix for incompatibilities introduced with the SDKs for 3.1 r2 and 3.2 r1. Due to unavoidable changes in the underlying SDK, the library must now be compiled against API level 13.

    • actionModeStyle and actionModePopupWindowStyle are no longer valid theme attributes.
    Source code(tar.gz)
    Source code(zip)
  • 3.0.2(Aug 14, 2013)

    • Sub-menus for action items are now shown in a list dialog.
    • Moved certain classes to the com.actionbarsherlock.internal package which were not meant for public consumption. Despite being given public scope in this new package, these classes should NOT be used under any circumstances as their API can be considered highly volatile and is subject to change often and without warning.
    Source code(tar.gz)

  • 3.0.1(Aug 14, 2013)

    • Fix: onOptionsItemSelected() not being called in fragments if the activity version returns false.
    • Fix: onCreateOptionsMenu() not being called in fragments on Android 3.0+.
    • New: Enable action item text display on pre-Android 3.0 by calling requestWindowFeature with Window.FEATURE_ENABLE_ACTION_BAR_WATSON_TEXT.
    • Fix: setCustomView() no longer automatically enables the custom view on pre-3.0. You must call setDisplayShowCustomEnabled() in order to display the view.
    Source code(tar.gz)
    Source code(zip)
  • 3.0.0(Aug 14, 2013)

    The API has been rewritten to mimic that of the native action bar. As a result, usage now only requires changing a few imports to use the support versions of classes and calling getSupportActionBar(). See the README for more info.

    The rewrite necessitated tight interaction with the compatibility library to the point where its sources are now included. You are no longer required to have the standalone .jar file.

    Also included is a default custom action bar for use by default on pre-3.0 devices. This custom implementation is based off of Johan Nilsson's Android-ActionBar and the work that I have done on it.

  • 2.1.0(Aug 14, 2013)

    WARNING: The Android Compatibility Library (v4) is now required.

    • Added ActionBarSherlock.Activity, ActionBarSherlock.FragmentActivity, and ActionBarSherlock.ListActivity for extension by implementing activities, the latter of which is deprecated. This affords a much tighter integration and allows for the use of other new features listed below.
    • New API method: layout(Fragment) will use the fragment argument as the content to the activity.
    • New API method: menu(int) allows for the inflation of menu XMLs from a resource. For the non-native implementation, the XML can be inflated to a custom Menu which can then be applied appropriately to the third-party action bar. Sub-menus are also supported. Third-party action bar handlers should implement ActionBarSherlock.HasMenu for this functionality. This feature requires that activities extend from one of the provided activity base classes.
    • New API method: homeAsUp(boolean). This mimics the native method setDisplayHomeAsUpEnalbed on the native action bar. Third-party action bar handlers should implement ActionBarSherlock.HasHomeAsUp for this functionality.
    • New API method: useLogo(boolean) will trigger the action bar to hide the application icon/home button and title and show a larger logo representing the application. Third-party action bar handlers should implement ActionBarSherlock.HasLogo for this functionality.
    • New API method: listNavigation(SpinnerAdapter, OnNavigationListener). Tells the action bar to use drop-down style navigation with the specified list of items and callback listener. Third-party action bar handlers should implement ActionBarSherlock.HasListNavigation for this functionality.
    • Javadocs are now available at jakewharton.github.com/ActionBarSherlock.
    • A standalone JAR is now available via the GitHub downloads page or in my personal maven repository as com.jakewharton:android-actionbarsherlock:2.1.0.
