like this.

I use material navigation drawer on my code.

This is my nav_header.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="192dp"
android:gravity="bottom"
android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark">

<ImageView
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:scaleType="centerCrop"
android:background="@drawable/bg_ist_nav_img" />

<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="52dp"
android:layout_gravity="left|bottom"
android:gravity="center"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:paddingBottom="8dp"
android:paddingLeft="16dp"
android:paddingRight="16dp">

<TextView
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_gravity="center"
android:gravity="center_vertical"
android:text="text"
android:textSize="30sp"
android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Body2" />

</LinearLayout>

</FrameLayout>


and finally this is my activity_main.xml

<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout

</LinearLayout>

<FrameLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_marginTop="@dimen/status_bar_margin_top">

app:headerLayout="@layout/navigation_drawer_header"
app:menu="@menu/navigation_drawer_menu"
app:theme="@style/NavigationViewTheme" />

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

Answer

After long research i decide to use custom sliding drawer. I solved my problem maybe you can use my way.So i have checkbox now.

First of all i defined drawer_list_item.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="30dp"
android:background="@color/list_item_title">

<ImageView
    android:id="@+id/icon"
    android:layout_width="25dp"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_alignParentLeft="true"
    android:layout_marginLeft="12dp"
    android:layout_marginRight="12dp"
    android:contentDescription="@string/desc_list_item_icon"
    android:src="@drawable/ic_home"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true" />

<TextView
    android:id="@+id/title"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_toRightOf="@id/icon"
    android:minHeight="?android:attr/listPreferredItemHeightSmall"
    android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceListItemSmall"
    android:textColor="@color/counter_text_bg"
    android:gravity="center_vertical"
    android:text="text"
    android:paddingRight="40dp"/>

<CheckBox
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:id="@+id/checkBox"
    android:checked="false"
    android:layout_marginLeft="20dp"
    android:buttonTint="@color/md_indigo_500"
    android:layout_marginEnd="19dp"
    android:layout_alignBaseline="@+id/title"
    android:layout_alignBottom="@+id/title"
    android:layout_alignParentEnd="true" />

</RelativeLayout>

now we have icon,text, and lovely checkbox.

after that i add listview in activity_main.xml

<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout   
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
android:id="@+id/drawer_layout"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent">
<!-- Framelayout to display Fragments -->
<FrameLayout
    android:id="@+id/frame_container"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

<!-- Listview to display slider menu -->
<ListView
    android:id="@+id/list_slidermenu"
    android:layout_width="240dp"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_gravity="start"
    android:choiceMode="singleChoice"
    android:divider="@android:color/transparent"
    android:dividerHeight="0dp"
    android:listSelector="@drawable/list_selector"
    android:background="@color/list_item_title"/>

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

i put the ListView here. finally i defined programmatically code in onCreate in MainActivity.java

    mTitle = mDrawerTitle = getTitle();     
    navMenuTitles = getResources().getStringArray(R.array.nav_drawer_items);
    navMenuIcons = getResources().     
    obtainTypedArray(R.array.nav_drawer_icons);

    mDrawerLayout = (DrawerLayout) findViewById(R.id.drawer_layout);
    mDrawerList = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.list_slidermenu);

    navDrawerItems = new ArrayList<NavDrawerItem>();
    navDrawerItems.add(new NavDrawerItem(navMenuTitles[0],   
    navMenuIcons.getResourceId(0, -1)));

    navDrawerItems.add(new NavDrawerItem(navMenuTitles[1],  
    navMenuIcons.getResourceId(1, -1)));

    navDrawerItems.add(new NavDrawerItem(navMenuTitles[2], 
    navMenuIcons.getResourceId(2, -1)));

    navDrawerItems.add(new NavDrawerItem(navMenuTitles[3], 
    navMenuIcons.getResourceId(3, -1)));

    navDrawerItems.add(new NavDrawerItem(navMenuTitles[4], 
    navMenuIcons.getResourceId(4, -1)));

    navDrawerItems.add(new NavDrawerItem(navMenuTitles[5],   
    navMenuIcons.getResourceId(5, -1)));

    navMenuIcons.recycle();


    adapter = new NavDrawerListAdapter(getApplicationContext(),
            navDrawerItems);
    mDrawerList.setAdapter(adapter);


    getActionBar().setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled(true);
    getActionBar().setHomeButtonEnabled(true);

    mDrawerToggle = new ActionBarDrawerToggle(this, mDrawerLayout,         
      R.string.app_name, 
    ){
        public void onDrawerClosed(View view) {
            getActionBar().setTitle(mTitle);
            invalidateOptionsMenu();
        }

        public void onDrawerOpened(View drawerView) {
            getActionBar().setTitle(mDrawerTitle);
            invalidateOptionsMenu();
        }
    };
    mDrawerLayout.setDrawerListener(mDrawerToggle);

@Override
public boolean onPrepareOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
    boolean drawerOpen = mDrawerLayout.isDrawerOpen(mDrawerList);
    menu.findItem(R.id.action_settings).setVisible(!drawerOpen);
    return super.onPrepareOptionsMenu(menu);
}

@Override
public void setTitle(CharSequence title) {
    mTitle = title;
    getActionBar().setTitle(mTitle);
}

@Override
protected void onPostCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onPostCreate(savedInstanceState);.
    mDrawerToggle.syncState();
}

@Override
public void onConfigurationChanged(Configuration newConfig) {
    super.onConfigurationChanged(newConfig);
    mDrawerToggle.onConfigurationChanged(newConfig);
}

and also you have use

i take icon and text in string.xml you have to define string array for text and array for icon. i follow this tutorial for this code this is very useful you can find more detail in http://www.androidhive.info/2013/11/android-sliding-menu-using-navigation-drawer/

I hope this solution is useful.
