    Re: How to perform action on Actionbar icon?

    Add menu  in res/menu/main_activity_actions.xml

    <menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

        <!-- Search, should appear as action button -->

        <item android:id="@+id/action_search"

              android:icon="@drawable/ic_action_search"

              android:title="@string/action_search"

              android:showAsAction="ifRoom" />

        <!-- Settings, should always be in the overflow -->

        <item android:id="@+id/action_settings"

              android:title="@string/action_settings"

              android:showAsAction="never" />

    </menu>

    Use this override method

    // This method will show menu in action bar

    @Override

    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {

        // Inflate the menu items for use in the action bar

        MenuInflater inflater = getMenuInflater();

        inflater.inflate(R.menu.main_activity_actions, menu);

        return super.onCreateOptionsMenu(menu);

    }

     

    And now again use below override method

    @Override

    public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {

        // Handle presses on the action bar items

        switch (item.getItemId()) {

            case R.id.action_search:

    // your code here      

                return true;

            case R.id.action_settings:

    // your code here      

                return true;

            default:

                return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);

        }

    }
