Can you change menu order based on user action?

    Is it possible to change the order of the menu items based on the user choosing a particular preference?

    Is it possible for the user to re-order menu items so their most used options appear as icons when the menu button is pushed?

    You don't need to inflate XML to generate the menu, you can do it in code. You should be fine to check preferences in that code.

    Example of creating menu without inflating xml
    Code (Text):
    2.     static final int MENU_ADD_WIDGET = 1;
    3.     static final int MENU_CLEAR_ALL = 2;
    4.     static final int MENU_QUIT = 3;
    6.     public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu  menu) {
    7.         menu.add(0, MENU_ADD_WIDGET, 0, "Add Widget");
    8.         menu.add(1, MENU_CLEAR_ALL, 0, "Clear all");
    9.         menu.add(2, MENU_QUIT, 0, "Quit");
    10.         return true;
    11.     }
