Android Question

How do I make DrawerLayout to display below the Toolbar?

How to make the drawer layout be below the actionbar/toolbar? I'm using v7:21 app compat library with the new ToolBar view.

Examples that I see looks like

<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:id="@+id/my_drawer_layout"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent">

<!-- drawer view -->
<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="304dp"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:layout_gravity="left|start">

<!-- drawer content -->

</LinearLayout>

<!-- normal content view -->
<LinearLayout
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:orientation="vertical">

<!-- The toolbar -->
<android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar
android:id="@+id/my_awesome_toolbar"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:minHeight="?attr/actionBarSize"
android:background="?attr/colorPrimary" />

<!-- The rest of content view -->

</LinearLayout>




But then the toolbar will be hidden by the drawer, which makes an animated hamburger icon (like v7.ActionBarDrawerToggle) useless since it will not be visible below the drawer, but I do want to use the new ToolBar view to support Material theme better.

So how to accomplish that? Is it possible to have DrawerLayout as a non top-level view?

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <!-- The toolbar -->
    <android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar  
        android:id="@+id/my_awesome_toolbar"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:minHeight="?attr/actionBarSize"
        android:background="?attr/colorPrimary" />

    <android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/my_drawer_layout"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

        <!-- drawer view -->
        <LinearLayout
            android:layout_width="304dp"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:layout_gravity="left|start">

            <!-- drawer content -->

        </LinearLayout>

        <!-- normal content view -->
        <LinearLayout
            android:layout_width="match_parent"
            android:layout_height="match_parent"
            android:orientation="vertical">



            <!-- The rest of content view -->

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

</LinearLayout>
