Solution: Invalid payload item type onMenuItemSelected

If you're developing for Android 2.3 or lower, users can reveal the options menu panel by pressing the Menu button.
On Android 3.0 and higher, items from the options menu are presented by the action bar as a combination of on-screen action items and overflow options. Beginning with Android 3.0, the Menu button is deprecated.

You have a sample code in 2.3, which is working fine for MENU option.

    @Override
    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
        // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.sample, menu);
        return true;
    }
   
    @Override
    public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
        // Handle item selection
        switch (item.getItemId()) {
            case R.id.logout:
                return true;
            default:
                return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
        }
    }


But there is a following exception when you have run same code in 4.0+ version

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Invalid payload item type

Solution: 
Override onMenuItemSelected, and use return true or false than super.onMenuItemSelected(featureId, item).
