Set Title to Android AlertDialog

To set a title to an Android AlertDialog we will have to make use of setTitle(String text) method. Lets see an example,

public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

  private  Toolbar toolbar;
    private Button myButton;
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

         toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(;

        AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);

        //Setting title to AlertDialog
        builder.setTitle("This is the Title!");

        builder.setMessage("Some message goes in here!");

        builder.setPositiveButton("OK", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
            public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {


        AlertDialog alertDialog = builder.create();;
