SearchView on ToolBar Android

Other than the Activity layout, the SearchView widget can also be implemented over ToolBar/ActionBar. Create the menu option and place a SearchView widget on it, to implement the SearchView over ToolBar.

Example of SearchView on ToolBar (ActionBar):

In the below example, we are demonstrating the SearchView over ToolBar and searching data in ListView.

activity_main.xml:

In the activity_main.xml file, we will add the ListView.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context=".MainActivity">
 
    <ListView
        android:id="@+id/listView"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent"
        tools:ignore="MissingConstraints" />
 
</android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>

menu.xml:

We will place the code to place the SearchView widget over ToolBar, in the menu.xml file in the menu folder. To create the menu folder, right-click on the res folder, then click New, select Directory and name it as menu. The menu.xml file then needs to be created inside the menu folder.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<menu xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
 
    <item
        android:id="@+id/app_bar_search"
 
        android:title="Search"
        app:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText"
        app:actionViewClass="android.widget.SearchView"/>
</menu>

        searchView.setOnQueryTextListener(new SearchView.OnQueryTextListener() {
            @Override
            public boolean onQueryTextSubmit(String query) {
                searchView.clearFocus();
             /*   if(list.contains(query)){
                    adapter.getFilter().filter(query);
                }else{
                    Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "No Match found",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                }*/
                return false;
 
            }
 
            @Override
            public boolean onQueryTextChange(String newText) {
                adapter.getFilter().filter(newText);
                return false;
            }
        });
        return super.onCreateOptionsMenu(menu);
