LegacyBar an ActionBar for Xamarin.Android (Mono for Android)

NOTE: This project was originally made, because there was no official Google backwards compatible ActionBar implementation. Since then one has appeared in the Android Support V7 package, which is now also available for Xamarin.Android. Newest stuff is in the eventmenu branch.

This was originally a port of android-actionbar by Johan Nilson.

LegacyBar is developed by Tomasz Cielecki (@Cheesebaron) and James Montemagno (@JamesMontemagno) and has moved away from the what the port initially was.

It now features:

  • A fully customizeable Action Bar
  • 4 Built in base themes
  • Integrates with current Menus
  • Overflow on API 11+ Devices
  • Dynamic Action Bar Item Count based on screen resolution
  • Importable library
  • Bottom Action Bar (beta)
