Strange menu problem with two activities

Postby SlumberMachine » Wed Oct 21, 2009 11:04 am

my app has two activities, but for some reason my menu item from the first activity is being added to the menu in the second activity.

first activity is just a view with four buttons and an "exit" button in the menu. Once one of the four main buttons are pressed I start the second activity which displays data in a scrollview and has a bunch of menu options (save, clear, goback, email). I made 2 different menu (mainmenu.xml and menu.xml) xml files. One for each activity and I call them each using similar code in each activity using the menu inflator method. For some reason "exit" is showing up at the top of my second activities menu. I triiple checked and I did not accidentally add it to the second acivities menu xml or code.

I also tried menu.clear() before creating the second menu and that just made it have no menu. Anyone know how to properly handle menus in a multi activity app?

I looked here, but still did not find an answer: http://developer.android.com/guide/prac ... esign.html

Thanks for any help!

So I somewhat solved this issue and just wanted to post here the answer in case someone else runs into the same thing. :D

There must be someway to handle this issue using the menu inflator method for making menus, but I have been unable to find anything at all on it. So I switched to the menu.add method and removed the menu.xml files.

So now I use the following code for handling the menu in the first(main) activity:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
Using java Syntax Highlighting
  1. public static final int INSERT_ID = Menu.FIRST;
  2.  
  3. @Override
  4.  
  5. public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
  6.  
  7.     boolean result = super.onCreateOptionsMenu(menu);
  8.  
  9.     //menu.add is (Group # , Int ID , order in the menu , text of the item)
  10.  
  11.     menu.add(0, INSERT_ID, 0, R.string.menu_quit);
  12.  
  13.     return result;
  14.  
  15. }
  16.  
  17.  
  18.  
  19.  
  20.  
  21. /* Handles menu item selections */
  22.  
  23. public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
  24.  
  25.     switch (item.getItemId()) {
  26.  
  27.     case INSERT_ID:
  28.  
  29.         Toast.makeText(this, "Bye!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
  30.  
  31.         finish();
  32.  
  33.         return true;
  34.  
  35.     }
  36.  
  37.     return false;
  38.  
  39. }

Second activity, you can turn off which group is visible using the line "menu.setGroupVisible(0, false);":
