Android Hide Title Bar

We are going to discuss the ways to hide the title bar and to display the content in full-screen mode.
requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE): It is a method of Activity, which must be coded before the setContentView method. It is called to hide the title.

Code that hides title bar of activity:

  • getSupportActionBar() method: Used to retrieve the instance of the ActionBar class.
  • hide() method of the ActionBar class: Used to hide the title bar.
requestWindowFeature(Window.FEATURE_NO_TITLE); //will hide the title 
getSupportActionBar().hide(); //hide the title bar

Code that enables the full-screen mode of activity:

  • setFlags() method of Window class: Used to display content in the full-screen mode.
  • WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN constant: It is passed in the setFlags method.
this.getWindow().setFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN,  
WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_FULLSCREEN); //show the activity in full screen
