Changing Android Intent Tittle using java code

If your application requires you to change the Tittle ( on the Action bar of a Intent) you can do so by using setTitle() function.

this.setTitle("Mortgage Calculator");


IntentClassName.setTitle("Mortgage Calculator");


package com.code2care.backTitleExample;

public class ChangeTitle extends Activity {
	private TextView textview;
	private SwipeDetector sd;
	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		this.setTitle("Changed Title");

	public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
		getMenuInflater().inflate(, menu);
		return true;
