Android Sliding Menu using Navigation Drawer

You might have noticed that lot of android applications introduced a sliding panel menu to navigate between major modules of the application. Previously this kind of UI was done using some third party libraries where a list view and some swiping gestures used to achieve this. But now android itself officially introduced sliding panel menu by introducing a newer concept called Navigation Drawer in which we combine DrawerLayout and NavigationView to achieve the desired output.

Most of the time Sliding Menu (Navigation Drawer) will be hidden and can be shown by swiping the screen from left edge to right or tapping the app icon on the action bar.

Example Applications

You can see lot of popular applications like Facebook, Youtube, Google + already introduced navigation drawer menu in their applications. Following are the navigation drawer menus of multiple apps.

1. Android Studio Navigation Drawer Template

You can add Navigation Drawer in your app in two ways. The quick and easy way is choosing the Navigation Drawer Activity from Android Studio when the new project is created. This creates an empty project with navigation drawer added.

android-navigation-drawer-android-studio

This creates the below basic skeleton app with few navigation menu items.

android-navigation-drawer-activity

Even though Android Studio gives you basic Navigation Drawer Menu, making it fully functional takes some effort. The next steps explains how to customize the navigation drawer appearance by adding header image, profile image and other texts. You will also learn how to prepare and attach the other menu views by creating the fragments and loading them properly.

To give you full information about navigation drawer, instead of choosing the drawer temple, I am creating an empty project and add the navigation drawer by explaining every step is needed. So let’s get started.

Below is the final output we are going to achieve in this article.

2. Starting new Project

1. Create a new project in Android Studio from File ⇒ New Project by filling the required details. When it prompts you to select the activity, choose Empty Activity and continue.

2. Open build.gradle located in app level and add below dependencies. I am adding Glide image library dependency. This is not needed for navigation drawer, but to load the profile image from url.

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:24.0.0-beta1'
    compile 'com.android.support:design:24.0.0-beta1'
    compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:24.0.0-beta1'

    // Glide image library
    compile 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:3.7.0'
}

3. Open strings.xml, dimens.xml, colors.xml located under res ⇒ values and add the below values.

<resources>
    <string name="app_name">Navigation Drawer</string>

    <string name="navigation_drawer_open">Open navigation drawer</string>
    <string name="navigation_drawer_close">Close navigation drawer</string>
    <string name="openDrawer">open_drawer</string>
    <string name="closeDrawer">close_drawer</string>

    <!-- Navigation Drawer menu labels -->
    <string name="nav_home">Home</string>
    <string name="nav_photos">Photos</string>
    <string name="nav_movies">Movies</string>
    <string name="nav_notifications">Notifications</string>
    <string name="nav_settings">Settings</string>
    <string name="nav_about_us">About Us</string>

    <!-- Toolbar titles when navigation menu item is selected -->
    <string-array name="nav_item_activity_titles">
        <item>Home</item>
        <item>Photos</item>
        <item>Movies</item>
        <item>Notifications</item>
        <item>Settings</item>
    </string-array>

    <string name="activity_title_about_us">About Us</string>
    <string name="activity_title_privacy_policy">Privacy Policy</string>
    <string name="action_clear_all">Clear All</string>
    <string name="action_logout">Logout</string>
    <string name="action_mark_all_read">Mark All as Read</string>
    <string name="privacy_policy">Privacy Policy</string>
</resources>
<resources>
    <!-- Default screen margins, per the Android Design guidelines. -->
    <dimen name="nav_header_vertical_spacing">16dp</dimen>
    <dimen name="nav_header_height">160dp</dimen>

    <!-- Default screen margins, per the Android Design guidelines. -->
    <dimen name="activity_horizontal_margin">16dp</dimen>
    <dimen name="activity_vertical_margin">16dp</dimen>
    <dimen name="fab_margin">16dp</dimen>
    <dimen name="profile_width">75dp</dimen>
    <dimen name="profile_height">75dp</dimen>
</resources>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <color name="colorPrimary">#d32f2f</color>
    <color name="colorPrimaryDark">#c72c2c</color>
    <color name="colorAccent">#FFFFFF</color>
</resources>

4. Download Home, Photos, Movies, Notifications, Settings icons from Material Icons and add them to your project’s res folder. These icons will be used as navigation menu item icons.

5. Under res ⇒ menu directory, create two menu xml files named notifications.xml and main.xml. These menus are used to render different toolbar overflow menus when the user switches between navigation drawer items.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto">
    <item
        android:id="@+id/action_mark_all_read"
        android:orderInCategory="100"
        android:title="@string/action_mark_all_read"
        app:showAsAction="never" />

    <item
        android:id="@+id/action_clear_notifications"
        android:orderInCategory="101"
        android:title="@string/action_clear_all"
        app:showAsAction="never" />
</menu>
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto">
    <item
        android:id="@+id/action_logout"
        android:orderInCategory="100"
        android:title="@string/action_logout"
        app:showAsAction="never" />
</menu>

Creating Fragments & Activities

6. Create three packages named activity, fragment, other and move the MainActivity.java to activity package.

7. Create all the fragment classes needed for navigation menu. Overall I am creating five fragment classes. Right click on fragment package, New ⇒ Fragment ⇒ Fragment (Blank) and name it as HomeFragment.java. This fragment will be loaded always whenever user open the app.

Likewise create other fragment activities named PhotosFragment, MoviesFragment, NotificationsFragment and SettingsFragment.

8. In our navigation drawer menu, there are two other menu items, About Us and Privacy Policy. For these two we are gonna create activities instead of fragments. Create new two activities named AboutUsActivity.java and PrivacyPolicyActivity.java.

android-navigation-drawer-project-structure

9. Inside other package, create a class named CircleTransform.java This class is used to display the profile image in circular fashion.

package info.androidhive.navigationdrawer.other;

import android.content.Context;
import android.graphics.Bitmap;
import android.graphics.BitmapShader;
import android.graphics.Canvas;
import android.graphics.Paint;

import com.bumptech.glide.load.engine.bitmap_recycle.BitmapPool;
import com.bumptech.glide.load.resource.bitmap.BitmapTransformation;

/**
 * Created by Lincoln on 10/03/16.
 */
public class CircleTransform extends BitmapTransformation {
    public CircleTransform(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }

    @Override
    protected Bitmap transform(BitmapPool pool, Bitmap toTransform, int outWidth, int outHeight) {
        return circleCrop(pool, toTransform);
    }

    private static Bitmap circleCrop(BitmapPool pool, Bitmap source) {
        if (source == null) return null;

        int size = Math.min(source.getWidth(), source.getHeight());
        int x = (source.getWidth() - size) / 2;
        int y = (source.getHeight() - size) / 2;

        // TODO this could be acquired from the pool too
        Bitmap squared = Bitmap.createBitmap(source, x, y, size, size);

        Bitmap result = pool.get(size, size, Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
        if (result == null) {
            result = Bitmap.createBitmap(size, size, Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
        }

        Canvas canvas = new Canvas(result);
        Paint paint = new Paint();
        paint.setShader(new BitmapShader(squared, BitmapShader.TileMode.CLAMP, BitmapShader.TileMode.CLAMP));
        paint.setAntiAlias(true);
        float r = size / 2f;
        canvas.drawCircle(r, r, r, paint);
        return result;
    }

    @Override
    public String getId() {
        return getClass().getName();
    }
}

10. Under res ⇒ drawable, create a file named bg_circle.xml. This provides circular background to view.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shape="oval">

    <solid
        android:color="@color/colorPrimary"/>

    <size
        android:width="120dp"
        android:height="120dp"/>
</shape>

11. Under res layout folder, create a layout named menu_dot.xml. This layout is used to render dot next to notifications label.

android-navigation-drawer-action-view

Adding Navigation Drawer

12. Under res ⇒ menu directory, create a menu xml file named activity_main_drawer.xml. This menu renders the Navigation Drawer list items. Here we set the icons and labels. You can also notice here <group> is used to combine multiple items under single levels. An <item> also can be used group multiple child items with a title. This provides a horizontal separator between the two sets.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <group android:checkableBehavior="single">
        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_home"
            android:icon="@drawable/ic_home_black_24dp"
            android:title="@string/nav_home" />
        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_photos"
            android:icon="@drawable/ic_photo_library_black_24dp"
            android:title="@string/nav_photos" />
        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_movies"
            android:icon="@drawable/ic_local_movies_black_24dp"
            android:title="@string/nav_movies" />

        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_notifications"
            android:icon="@drawable/ic_notifications_black_24dp"
            android:title="@string/nav_notifications" />

        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_settings"
            android:icon="@drawable/ic_settings_black_24dp"
            android:title="@string/nav_settings" />
    </group>

    <item android:title="Other">
        <menu>
            <item
                android:id="@+id/nav_about_us"
                android:title="@string/nav_about_us" />
            <item
                android:id="@+id/nav_privacy_policy"
                android:title="@string/privacy_policy" />
        </menu>
    </item>

</menu>

13. Under res ⇒ layout, create a file named nav_header_main.xml This layout renders the navigation drawer header part with a profile image, name and website.

14. Now we’ll create another layout file to add required Toolbar, FAB and FrameLayout. FrameLayout is used to load appropriate fragment when an item is selected from nav menu. Create a layout file named app_bar_main.xml under res ⇒ layout.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:fitsSystemWindows="true"
    tools:context="info.androidhive.navigationdrawer.activity.MainActivity">

    <android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme.AppBarOverlay">

        <android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
            android:id="@+id/toolbar"
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="?attr/actionBarSize"
            android:background="?attr/colorPrimary"
            app:popupTheme="@style/AppTheme.PopupOverlay" />

    </android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout>

    <FrameLayout
        android:id="@+id/frame"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior"></FrameLayout>

    <android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton
        android:id="@+id/fab"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="bottom|end"
        android:layout_margin="@dimen/fab_margin"
        app:backgroundTint="@color/colorPrimary"
        app:srcCompat="@android:drawable/ic_dialog_email" />

</android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout>

15. Open the layout file your main activity activity_main.xml and add NavigationView element. You can notice that the toolbar layout is added using <include> tag.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/drawer_layout"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:fitsSystemWindows="true"
    tools:openDrawer="start">

    <include
        layout="@layout/app_bar_main"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" />

    <android.support.design.widget.NavigationView
        android:id="@+id/nav_view"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        android:layout_gravity="start"
        android:fitsSystemWindows="true"
        app:headerLayout="@layout/nav_header_main"
        app:menu="@menu/activity_main_drawer" />

</android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout>

16. Now we have all the required elements in place. It’s time to open the main activity and do the necessary changes to make the navigation drawer functional. Open MainActivity.java and modify as explained below.

setUpNavigationView() – Initializes the Navigation Drawer by creating necessary click listeners and other functions.

loadNavHeader() – Function loads the navigation drawer header information like profile image, name and website. Here we use Glide image library to load the profile image.

getHomeFragment() – Returns the appropriate Fragment depending on the nav menu item user selected. For example if user selects Photos from nav menu, it returns PhotosFragment. This can be done by using the variable navItemIndex.

loadHomeFragment() – Loads the fragment returned from getHomeFragment() function into FrameLayout. It also takes care of other things like changing the toolbar title, hiding / showing fab, invalidating the options menu so that new menu can be loaded for different fragment.

Other code is very easy to understand and self explanatory. I have also added comments to each code block for better understanding.
