In this post, I will teach you how to add Action Bar in Android Applications. I will also discuss how to make the Action Bar work in lower SDK Android version (Backward compatibility).
You must know about Action Bar before you start creating it. I recommend you to take a look at What is Action Bar? post which will provide you basic information about Action Bar.
Adding the Action Bar in Android applcation involves three steps, they are:
In this post, I will walk you through an important Android UI component – Action Bar. You will also find list of useful posts on Action Bar tutorial following this post. Before we start creating Action Bar, we should know What is Acton Bar and its uses.
Let us begin.
To create a new Android Application Project in Eclipse, one has to fill in following details to proceed to next step in project creation.
- Application Name – Is an App name that appears to User
- Project Name – Is a Name of the project directory
- Package Name – Is an Application’s package name
- Minimum Required SDK – ???
- Target SDK – ???
- Compile With – ???
- Theme – It specifies Android UI style
We enter Application name, Project name and Package name but we usually leave default values for Minimum Required SDK, Target SDK and Compile With.
In this post, I will walk you through how to perform Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations in SQLite DB embedded in Android devices.
You must know about SQLite before you start creating the application. Take a look at What is SQLite? post which will make you understand much about SQLite.
Here are the quick links:
In this post, we will discuss about SQLite – A Thin Relational Database.
SQLite is used in most of the applications which need less complicated relational database.
SQLite is embedded in every Android device and it provides phenomenal support to perform database operations in Android via in built Android APIs.

I hope you folks understood how easy it is to develop Android application with AQuery library in handling image loading, making asynchronous call and lot more from my previous posts. If not take a look at the below posts and they are prerequisite to develop the Application which I am going to teach you in this post.
It’s time to explore the other most wonderful feature of AQuery and that is ‘Asynchronous Network Calls’ to download JSON from remote server. In this post we will be developing simple application to demonstrate how to download JSON from Internet and render it over UI after parsing it. I already wrote a separate article – Android JSON Web Service Tutorial on how to make Asynchronous call to download JSON from Network using Android Dot Net Webservice combo.
