Overflow Menu

0 Alvin Chang · July 26, 2015

I'm on the tutorial about the Overflow Menu or the 3 little dots but I cannot get those dots to show up even after I use the Material Light theme. I see the Action Bar but the those 3 dots. Please help, thank you.

I had the same problem: The 3 dots didn't show up in my activity_main.xml design. In the end, though, it didn't matter. After I entered all the code and tried running it, the dots were there, and the code ran as intended.

So don't get discouraged... Just keep going and see if you can get it to work. I actually ended up getting lost down a pretty deep rabbit hole, stubbornly trying to figure out exactly why the 3 dots didn't show up at first. I did learn some things, but not enough to understand all of it. I eventually decided to just shrug and move on, because I'm working on a pretty steep learning curve and don't want to lose momentum. I need to learn more basic knowledge first... Expert topics can wait for now.
