import android.annotation.TargetApi;
import android.app.ActionBar;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Context;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;
import android.widget.AutoCompleteTextView;

@TargetApi(11)
public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    private static final String[] COUNTRIES = new String[] { "Belgium",
            "France", "France_", "Italy", "Germany", "Spain" };

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

        ActionBar actionBar = getActionBar();
        actionBar.setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled(true);
        actionBar.setDisplayShowCustomEnabled(true);
        // actionBar.setDisplayShowTitleEnabled(false);
        // actionBar.setIcon(R.drawable.ic_action_search);

        LayoutInflater inflator = (LayoutInflater) this
                .getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
        View v = inflator.inflate(R.layout.actionbar, null);

        actionBar.setCustomView(v);

        ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,
                android.R.layout.simple_dropdown_item_1line, COUNTRIES);
        AutoCompleteTextView textView = (AutoCompleteTextView) v
                .findViewById(R.id.editText1);
        textView.setAdapter(adapter);
