Options menu with dividers

In Android there is a default options menu, which can take a number of options. If a larger number of options needs to be displayed, then it makes sense to group those options in order to maintain clarity. Options can be grouped by putting dividers (i.e. horizontal lines) between them. In order to allow for dividers, the following theme can be used:

<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.DarkActionBar">
    <!-- Customize your theme here. -->
    <item name="colorPrimary">@color/colorPrimary</item>
    <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/colorPrimaryDark</item>
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/colorAccent</item>
    <item name="android:dropDownListViewStyle">@style/PopupMenuListView</item>
<style name="PopupMenuListView" parent="@style/Widget.AppCompat.ListView.DropDown">
    <item name="android:divider">@color/black</item>
    <item name="android:dividerHeight">1dp</item>

By changing the theme, dividers can be added to a menu.
