Deprecated

This library is deprecated and won't be supported any longer. Instead, I would suggest you to use DrawerLayout which is supported by Google and follows their design guidelines.

AndroidSideMenu

AndroidSideMenu lets you create side (slide\drawer, whatever you call it) menu without special effort.

Example

Why this one is better than others? Because it works much faster (thanks to caching), so it's doesn't matter how complex your layouts are.

Note that this library doesn't provide tools for creating menu itself, you are free to put inside menu whatever you want (ListView? LinearLayout? RelativeLayout? ImageView? ...)

Installlation

Add .jar file to build path.

Usage

There is no need to extend another Activity, all you have to do is wrap your layout in SlideHolder widget like this:

<com.agimind.widget.SlideHolder
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <!-- Here is any view that will represent your side menu. Don't forget to provide width! -->
    <View 
        android:layout_width="300dp"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        />

    <!-- And here is your main layout -->
    <View 
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent"
        />

</com.agimind.widget.SlideHolder>

Note, that you should provide fixed width for your menu (in xml or programmaticaly).

On big devices (tablets in landscape orientation) consider always show side menu using this method:

setAlwaysOpened(true);

SlideHolder also supports revers swipe (from right to left). To enable this feature use:

setDirection(SlideHolder.DIRECTION_RIGHT);
