This example demonstrates how do I get the action bar height 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"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   tools:context=".MainActivity">
   <android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
      android:id="@+id/actionBarSize"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark"
      android:background="@color/colorAccent">
   </android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar>
   <Button
      android:id="@+id/btnGetHeight"
      android:text="Get Action Bar height"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_centerInParent="true"/>
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/textView"
      android:textSize="16sp"
      android:textStyle="bold"
      android:layout_marginTop="15dp"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_centerInParent="true"
      android:layout_below="@id/btnGetHeight"/>
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;
import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar;
   public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   Toolbar toolbar;
   Button button;
   TextView textView;
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      toolbar= findViewById(R.id.actionBarSize);
      toolbar.setTitle("MyActionBar");
      getSupportActionBar();
      textView = findViewById(R.id.textView);
      button = findViewById(R.id.btnGetHeight);
      button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            int height = toolbar.getHeight();
            textView.setText("ActionBar Height: " + height + " pixels");
         }
      });
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   package="app.com.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.
