Android Build a Self-Destructing Message Android App Adding Users Using Parse.com Logging Out

No Overflow (Logout) shown in actionbar after changes. action.setNavigationMode has a strikethrough in my code.

After completing the steps in this video, I still do not see the Overflow menu and the Logout option in the actionbar.

I am using android studio, and I have a strikethrough in the following line of code:

actionBar.setNavigationMode(ActionBar.NAVIGATION_MODE_TABS);

Not sure if this is related to the actionbar item showing up? When I hover over the strikethrough, it says these methods have been deprecated and that a NullPointerException may be created.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I was able to get past my issue. Seemed to be a number of things, that I had to change to get it to work for me.

For one, the action bar overflow menu never did appear when I was emulating on the Samsung Galaxy S4, API 19. However, I did find my "logout" menu option on the main menu button for this phone. I switched to using the Moto X, API 19 and it now appears in the action bar, as desired.
