Action Bar not avaliable on ListActivity in Android Studio
I have seen many people getting stuck on this with no real apparent solutions. It would be better to run the self destructing message application in Eclipse like Ben is doing it. I got up to this point as in the Edit friends activity it wasn't really important - but here where you need the Send button to appear it is critical.
For other people who have reached this point however the same as I have. Ben has helped a guy called Ken to resolve the issues with his app on the Forum here : https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/android-selfdestructing-app-question
What I found from his code posted here : https://github.com/kenwalger/Ribbit
Was that a the Activity was not extended from ListView but from Activity and then a GridView was added (I assume a ListView would work as well - not sure why GridView was used, but it may be become more apparent later on...)
I hope the course get adapted to be used in Android Studio sooner than later.
