ActionBar and forcing items into the overflow menu

From: Anuj G.

I am trying to force "reset" to show up in ActionBar's overflow (3 vertical dots). The appearance of summary is correct, but I can't seem to make the overflow appear.  What set of enums do I need for android:showAsAction?  I have tried these 3 variants but none give the desired result:

android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText"
android:showAsAction="never|withText"
android:showAsAction="always|withText"

Maybe it's user error, but this would be useful to add to the docs

I have also looked on stackoverflow and have not found anything directly answering this question.

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >
    <item
        android:id="@+id/menu_reset"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_reset"
        android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText"
        android:title="@string/menu_reset"/>
    <item
        android:id="@+id/menu_summary"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_summary"
        android:showAsAction="always"
        android:title="@string/menu_summary"/>
</menu>

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activitymain);

ActionBar actionBar = getActionBar();
actionBar.show();
return;
}
