  1. Create a new menu xml file in the res/menu folder.
  2. Add an item to the menu with the attribute android:id="@+id/textviewmenu_item" and android:title="TextView".
  3. In the Main Activity's onCreateOptionsMenu() method, inflate the menu xml file and return true.
  4. In the Main Activity's onOptionsItemSelected() method, check if the selected menu item is the textviewmenu_item.
  5. If it is, create a new TextView element using the findViewById() method with the id, and set its text to "Hello World".
  6. Finally, add the TextView element to the Main Activity's layout using the addView() method of the parent container.
