How to remove the title at the top of your android application

Posted 20 August 2014 - 01:10 PM

Hello,

You know how you make an android application in Eclipse and by default there is a section at the top of you application screen where it shows your application's name next to it's icon? Well, how would I remove that?

*I'm not really good with describing details so if you don't get what I am asking please say so. I will post a picture of my problem.*

I would advocate looking into setting setDisplayShowHomeEnabled and setDisplayShowTitleEnabled to false

I can't find it in my manifest.xml

Is it in another place?

Come on, man. Cut me some slack. No joke, I am a 14 year old college student who is studying Computer Science. I am learning new things here... please bare with me.

I'm not seeing anything regarding to my issue. I don't see a command that relates to the icon or title in any way.

Again - look at the two functions I suggested in the documentation link I provided. They are pretty clearly marked there and examples of interactions.

Alright, so it's called the Activity Bar. See, man? I'm learning step by step. :)

However I don't see the option for disabling it. I know that it has to be one of the commands listed in the picture I just attached.

so you want to disable the menu or just remove the text?

requestWindowFeature(window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE); << this will remove the menubar
