Android Question

Navigation drawer starts from right side

How can i make the navigation drawer open from the right to the left?

Main.xml

<android.support.design.widget.NavigationView
android:id="@+id/navigation_view"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:layout_gravity="end"
app:headerLayout="@layout/drawer_header"
app:menu="@menu/navigation"
android:background="#FFE7FF"/>




drawer_header.xml

<FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="150dp"
android:baselineAligned="false"
android:orientation="vertical">




navigation.xml

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto">
<group android:checkableBehavior="single">
<item
android:id="@+id/Home"
android:checked="true"
android:icon="@drawable/homelogo"
android:title="Home" /></group></menu>


This is how i create it in main activity

navigationView = (NavigationView) findViewById(R.id.navigation_view);
navigationView.setNavigationItemSelectedListener(new NavigationView.OnNavigationItemSelectedListener() {
@Override
public boolean onNavigationItemSelected(MenuItem menuItem) {
switch (menuItem.getItemId()) {
(..........)


How can i make it ? I've tried android:gravity but it doesn't work.

Answer

In your main.xml there is the android.support.design.widget.NavigationView which has the following attribute: android:layout_gravity="end". You have to set it to right, so it will be like this: android:layout_gravity="right". The rest is done by the design support lib.

Note that the Android Studio will show a warning that you should use end instead of right in order to ensure correct behavior in right-to-left languages. You can ignore this message.
