Android RuntimeException :Activity must implement OnFragmentInteractionListener

I'm trying to implement a

drawer layout

content_main.xml(where the fragment should be displayed):

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


import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton;
import android.support.design.widget.Snackbar;
import android.view.View;
import android.support.design.widget.NavigationView;
import android.support.v4.view.GravityCompat;
import android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout;
import android.support.v7.app.ActionBarDrawerToggle;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentManager;
import layout.FragmentMain;
...other stuff...
public boolean onNavigationItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
// Handle navigation view item clicks here.
int id = item.getItemId();

if (id == R.id.nav_camera) {
FragmentMain fragment_main = FragmentMain.newInstance("one","two");
FragmentManager manager= getSupportFragmentManager();
} else if (id == R.id.nav_gallery) {

} else if (id == R.id.nav_slideshow) {

} else if (id == R.id.nav_manage) {

} else if (id == R.id.nav_share) {

} else if (id == R.id.nav_send) {


DrawerLayout drawer = (DrawerLayout) findViewById(R.id.drawer_layout);
return true;


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

android:text="@string/hello_blank_fragment" />



package layout;

import android.content.Context;
import android.net.Uri;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;

import com.daveslab.wideview.R;

* A simple {@link Fragment} subclass.
* Activities that contain this fragment must implement the

public static FragmentMain newInstance(String param1, String param2) {
FragmentMain fragment = new FragmentMain();
Bundle args = new Bundle();
args.putString(ARG_PARAM1, param1);
args.putString(ARG_PARAM2, param2);
return fragment;

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
if (getArguments() != null) {
mParam1 = getArguments().getString(ARG_PARAM1);
mParam2 = getArguments().getString(ARG_PARAM2);

public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// Inflate the layout for this fragment
return inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_main, container, false);

// TODO: Rename method, update argument and hook method into UI event
public void onButtonPressed(Uri uri) {
if (mListener != null) {

public void onAttach(Context context) {
if (context instanceof OnFragmentInteractionListener) {
mListener = (OnFragmentInteractionListener) context;
} else {
throw new RuntimeException(context.toString()
+ " must implement OnFragmentInteractionListener");

public void onDetach() {
mListener = null;

* This interface must be implemented by activities that contain this
* fragment to allow an interaction in this fragment to be communicated
* to the activity and potentially other fragments contained in that
* activity.
* <p>
* See the Android Training lesson <a href=

* >Communicating with Other Fragments</a> for more information.
public interface OnFragmentInteractionListener {
// TODO: Update argument type and name
void onFragmentInteraction(Uri uri);

I get errors when i click on the drawer button
console log:

some ideas?

Answer Source

Your activity has no OnFragmentInteractionListener so if it's not found then your code is throwing this exception itself inside else case .

if (context instanceof OnFragmentInteractionListener) {
    mListener = (OnFragmentInteractionListener) context;
} else {
    throw new RuntimeException(context.toString() //  Here is your exception
            + " must implement OnFragmentInteractionListener");

Do this in Your MainActivity.

public class MainActivity extends AppCompactActivity implements 

  public void onFragmentInteraction(Uri uri){
