Steps to reproduce this bug:- 1) Create a simple tabbar based app in Alloy 2) Now try adding android menu to one of the window contained in any tab of the tabbar.

       		<Tab title="Tab 1" icon="KS_nav_ui.png">
       			<Window title="Tab 1">
       				<Menu id="menu" platform="android">
       					<!-- Cannot specify node text.  Use attributes only. -->
       					<MenuItem id="menuItem1" title="Item 1"   />
       					<MenuItem id="menuItem2" title="Item 2"   />
       				<Label>I am Window 1</Label>
       		<Tab title="Tab 2" icon="KS_nav_views.png">
       			<Window title="Tab 2">
       				<Label>I am Window 2</Label>
    Simply try creating a controller with this view. And try to compile it with 3.1.3 Obsevered results:- Menu bar not coming However if you try to compile the same code with 3.1.0, it will show you the menu items on android.

    Hi Ankur, I have just tested this issue and I was unable to reproduce it, Can you provide me with some more information: Android Device? Android Version? And if possible could you provide screenshots demonstrating the issue.
