I already know ho to hide the title bar with the
in the Activity onCreate() method before the setContentView() call.

But i want something different. I'd like to show/hide the title bar in
any moment. To make an example, place a button in the view that toggle
the title. Unfortunately the requestFeature can be done only before
the call to setContentView().

How to you think is the best way to achive this? There is a way to
solve this issue?

 What is your motivation for hiding or showing the title bar at runtime?
Did you consider slicing your app in various activities, which can
have different themes?

 Write your own title-bar.
It's a hassle, but this is a way to do it.

Create a View that looks like a title-bar and put it on top of your
screen. You can hide and show it at any time.

 If you want the title most of the time, and only hide it temporarily, you
can use a PopupWindow.
