Android Studio: Use Navigation Drawer with Tabs

Android Studio: Use Navigation Drawer with Tabs

 Use Navigation Drawer with Tabs in Android.

Navigation drawers provide access to destinations and app functionality, switching tabs. Tabs can either be permanently on-screen or controlled by a navigation menu icon. Navigation drawers are consumed for, with five or more top-level targets, two or more levels of navigation hierarchy, Fast navigation between unrelated target.

Firstly create new project like

File -> new project -> Name it as like NavigationDraweerwithTabs -> select minimum SDK like 14 ->select Navigation Drawer Activity.

Goto app_bar_main.xml

  1. Under Toolbar add TabLayout.
  2. Here added three tabs more
  3. Remove FloatingActionButton.
  4. Give TabLayout id as tabs.
  5. Make tabMode scrollable.

Here is,

app_bar_main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

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



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

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

Remove floatingActionButton code portion from MainnActivity.java

  • Create java class tabpagerAdapter which extends FragmentStatePagerAdapter.
  • Using ALT+ENTER implements all the methods and constructor.
  • Add an Override method getPageTitle charsequence type which returns tabs String type array with position.
  • Add viewpager in content_main.xml.
  • Create six blank fragments with xml. In tabpagerAdapter, Overridden method getItem() add switch statement to add corresponding tabs.
  • Overridden method getItem() return the number of tabs.

Here is,

content_main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout

    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"

    android:layout_width="match_parent"

    android:layout_height="match_parent"

    app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior"

    tools:context="com.example.nipu.navigationwithtabs.MainActivity"

    tools:showIn="@layout/app_bar_main">





    <android.support.v4.view.ViewPager

        android:id="@+id/viewpager"

        android:layout_width="match_parent"

        android:layout_height="match_parent">



    </android.support.v4.view.ViewPager>



</android.support.constraint.ConstraintLayout>





tabpagerAdapter.java

package com.example.nipu.navigationwithtabs;

import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;

import android.support.v4.app.FragmentManager;

import android.support.v4.app.FragmentStatePagerAdapter;

public class tabpagerAdapter extends FragmentStatePagerAdapter {


    String[] tabarray = new String[]{"One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six"};

    Integer tabnumber = 6;



    public tabpagerAdapter(FragmentManager fm) {

        super(fm);

    }



    @Override

    public CharSequence getPageTitle(int position) {

        return tabarray[position];

    }



    @Override

    public Fragment getItem(int position) {



        switch (position)

        {

            case 0:

                one one1 = new one();

                return one1;

            case 1:

                two two2 = new two();

                return two2;

            case 2:

                three three3 = new three();

                return three3;

            case 3:

                four four4 = new four();

                return four4;

            case 4:

                five five5 = new five();

                return five5;

            case 5:

                six six6 = new six();

                return six6;

        }





        return null;

    }



    @Override

    public int getCount() {

        return tabnumber;

    }

}





Now goto,

MainActivity.java

  • Initialize TabLayout, Viewpager.
  • Create object tabpagerAdapter and set with viewpager
  • Set viewpager with TabLayout.
