This example demonstrates how to display custom view in ActionBar in android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout 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">
   <TextView
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:text="Custom Action Bar"
      android:textSize="20sp"/>
</LinearLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to res/layout/custom_action_bar.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
   xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   android:gravity="center_vertical"
   android:padding="10dp"
   android:weightSum="1">
   <LinearLayout
      android:layout_width="0dp"
      android:layout_height="match_parent"
      android:layout_weight="0.6">
      <ImageView
         android:layout_width="wrap_content"
         android:layout_height="match_parent" />
      <TextView
         android:id="@+id/name"
         android:layout_width="match_parent"
         android:layout_height="wrap_content"
         android:layout_marginLeft="10dp"
         android:text="Instagram"
         android:textSize="20sp"
         android:textColor="#000"
         android:textStyle="bold" />
   </LinearLayout>
   <LinearLayout
      android:layout_width="0dp"
      android:layout_height="match_parent"
      android:layout_marginRight="10dp"
      android:layout_weight="0.4"
      android:gravity="end">
      <ImageView
         android:layout_width="wrap_content"
         android:layout_height="match_parent" />
      <ImageView
         android:layout_width="wrap_content"
         android:layout_height="match_parent"
         android:layout_marginLeft="20dp" />
   </LinearLayout>
</LinearLayout>

Step 4 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

package com.example.sample;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v7.app.ActionBar;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.widget.Toast;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      this.getSupportActionBar().setDisplayOptions(ActionBar.DISPLAY_SHOW_CUSTOM);
      getSupportActionBar().setDisplayShowCustomEnabled(true);
      getSupportActionBar().setCustomView(R.layout.custom_action_bar);
      //getSupportActionBar().setElevation(0);
      View view=getSupportActionBar().getCustomView();
      TextView name=view.findViewById(R.id.name);
      name.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "You have clicked tittle", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
         }
      });
   }
}

Step 5 − Add the following code to Manifests/AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="com.example.sample">
   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run Play Icon  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen −
