Android Api 23 Change Navigation View headerLayout textview

I am testing the Navigation Drawer sample project in android and i have a problem setting the text in navigation view profile header.

This is my code:

MainActivity.java

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);
fab.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
@Override
public void onClick(View view) {
Snackbar.make(view, "Replace with your own action", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG)
.setAction("Action", null).show();
}
});

DrawerLayout drawer = (DrawerLayout) findViewById(R.id.drawer_layout);
ActionBarDrawerToggle toggle = new ActionBarDrawerToggle(
this, drawer, toolbar, R.string.navigation_drawer_open, R.string.navigation_drawer_close);
drawer.setDrawerListener(toggle);
toggle.syncState();

NavigationView navigationView = (NavigationView) findViewById(R.id.nav_view);
navigationView.setNavigationItemSelectedListener(this);

TextView text = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView);
texto.setText("HELLO");
}


activity_main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools" android:id="@+id/drawer_layout"
android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:fitsSystemWindows="true" tools:openDrawer="start">

<include layout="@layout/app_bar_main" android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent" />

<android.support.design.widget.NavigationView android:id="@+id/nav_view"
android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:layout_gravity="start" android:fitsSystemWindows="true"
app:headerLayout="@layout/nav_header_main" app:menu="@menu/activity_main_drawer" />

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


nav_header_main.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="@dimen/nav_header_height"
android:background="@drawable/side_nav_bar"
android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark" android:orientation="vertical"
android:gravity="bottom">

<ImageView android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:paddingTop="@dimen/nav_header_vertical_spacing"
android:src="@android:drawable/sym_def_app_icon" android:id="@+id/imageView" />

<TextView android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:paddingTop="@dimen/nav_header_vertical_spacing" android:text="Android Studio"
android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Body1" />

<TextView android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:text="android.studio@android.com" android:id="@+id/textView" />

</LinearLayout>


When i try to set the text of the textview i always get this error and it only happens with api level 23:

java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'void android.widget.TextView.setText(java.lang.CharSequence)' on a null object reference


How can i change the Textview text of the nav_header_main.xml from the main activity??

Thanks in advance

Answer

I had the same issue and was able to avoid it with this code:

    View header = LayoutInflater.from(this).inflate(R.layout.nav_header_main, null);
    navigationView.addHeaderView(header);
    TextView text = (TextView) header.findViewById(R.id.textView);
    text.setText("HELLO");
