MenuDrawer

A slide-out menu implementation, which allows users to navigate between views in your app. Most commonly the menu is revealed by either dragging the edge of the screen, or clicking the 'up' button in the action bar.

Features

  • The menu can be positioned along all four edges.
  • Supports attaching an always visible, non-draggable menu, which is useful on e.g. tablets.
  • The menu can wrap both the content and the entire window.
  • Allows the drawer to be opened by dragging the edge, the entire screen or not at all.
  • Can be used in XML layouts.
  • Indicator that shows which screen is currently visible.

Usage

This library is very simple to use. It requires no extension of custom classes, it's simply added to an activity by calling one of the MenuDrawer#attach(...) methods.

For more examples on how to use this library, check out the sample app.

Left menu

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {

    private MenuDrawer mDrawer;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle state) {
        super.onCreate(state);
        mDrawer = MenuDrawer.attach(this);
        mDrawer.setContentView(R.layout.activity_sample);
        mDrawer.setMenuView(R.layout.menu_sample);
    }
}

Right menu

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {

    private MenuDrawer mDrawer;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle state) {
        super.onCreate(state);
        mDrawer = MenuDrawer.attach(this, Position.RIGHT);
        mDrawer.setContentView(R.layout.activity_sample);
        mDrawer.setMenuView(R.layout.menu_sample);
    }
}

Including in your project

Either include it in your project as an android library project, or grab it via maven:

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.simonvt.menudrawer</groupId>
    <artifactId>menudrawer</artifactId>
    <version>{latest.version}</version>
    <type>apklib</type>
</dependency>
