Navigation Drawer Menu Item Title Color in Android

I have a problem changing the Menu Item Title

Color
in the
Navigation Drawer
I set the
itemTextColor
but it only changes the
Color
of the Items not the
Title
of the menu.

Here is my
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"
app:itemTextColor="#ffffff"
android:background="#283135"
/>


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


activity_main_drawer.xml

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

<group android:checkableBehavior="single">
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_home"
android:icon="@mipmap/hospital"
android:title="Home"
/>
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_reminder"
android:icon="@mipmap/alarm"
android:title="Reminders" />

</group>

<item android:title="Tools">
<menu>
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_settings"
android:icon="@mipmap/settings"
android:title="Settings" />
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_help"
android:icon="@mipmap/information"
android:title="Help" />
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_about"
android:icon="@mipmap/team"
android:title="About Us" />
</menu>
</item>

</menu>

Answer

To give Menu item title color and textSize Create this way..

add this to your styles.xml file.

 <style name="TextAppearance44">
        <item name="android:textColor">#FF0000</item>
        <item name="android:textSize">20sp</item>
 </style>

now in activity_main_drawer.xml file give id attribute to title..

<item android:title="Tools"
       android:id="@+id/tools">
        <menu>
            <item
                android:id="@+id/nav_settings"
                android:icon="@mipmap/settings"
                android:title="Settings" />
            <item
                android:id="@+id/nav_help"
                android:icon="@mipmap/information"
                android:title="Help" />
            <item
                android:id="@+id/nav_about"
                android:icon="@mipmap/team"
                android:title="About Us" />
        </menu>
    </item>

now In MainActivity.java file use this way..

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

        Menu menu = navigationView.getMenu();

        MenuItem tools= menu.findItem(R.id.tools);
        SpannableString s = new SpannableString(tools.getTitle());
        s.setSpan(new TextAppearanceSpan(this, R.style.TextAppearance44), 0, s.length(), 0);
        tools.setTitle(s);
        navigationView.setNavigationItemSelectedListener(this);

It will change your tools color to Red and TextSize to 20sp.. Implement it..

In my case Output :
