Hi,

I'm trying to implement the search dialog and I am unable to display the search from an Activity.

I have my main activity defined in my manifest file, this activity shows the user a list of options they have to choose from. One of the options is a Search option.



My Search activity is defined in my manifest file like so.


Now my problem is when I call the onSearchRequested() from my MenuListActivity nothing happens.



Please help, how do I invoke the search request from my MenuActivity?

What value does the call return? You're not overriding the default implementation, are you?

Currently im not doing anything with the search query other than logging it. My hope was to see the search menu, type in a search value and have my SearchActivity receive the query request.

Here is my SearchActivity class

OK. But what are the answers to my two questions? :-)

My call will return a list of product objects. No I am not overriding the default implementation.

No, I meant the call to onSearchRequested - does it return true or false?
