Hi Nicos,
It seems that you need to use JNI or build-in Qt QAndroidJniObject to
call something like this
in your Java file.

public boolean setAppBarTitle(String theNewTitle) {

        final String theFinalTitle = theNewTitle;

        m_qtActivityInstance.runOnUiThread(new Runnable() {
            public void run()
                //Log.d(TAG, "::setAppBarTitle - prior to setAppBarTitle");

        return true;

Kind regards,
