ActionItems Issue

I find actionitems very useful in my application but I was wondering if we have the ability to do either of the two following things with them:

 

-When I set an actionItem to the onBar, it appears on the bar yes but it also appears onSide, which in my situation is redundant, is there a way to just have them onBar? Or if we have 5 actionitems, must all 5 appear in the overflow?

 

-Move them programmatically, or once set either on the sidebar or onBar can they not be moved? If I click on on the onBar but then want it to go to the sidebar on click and be replaced by another for example.

 

If anyone can answer questions about either of these issues I would appreciate it, thanks.

Re: ActionItems Issue

Please vote for https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/BBTEN-188

 

As for your second issue, have you tried changing the actions property dynamically?
