BlogReader app - Share icon not shown in menu

Hi,

I cannot get the share icon to show up in the menu. Below is the piece of code in which I call the menu:

    @Override
public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
    // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
    getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_blog_web_view, menu);
    return true;
}

And here is the code in the XML file of the menu:

<item
    android:id="@+id/action_share"
    android:icon="@drawable/ic_action_share"
    android:showAsAction="always"
    android:title="@string/action_share">
</item>

1 Answer

I already found the answer: I had to copy-paste the icon file in the drawable folders of the lower resolutions.
