How to move main content with Drawer Layout left side

Just checked how to make menu with DrawerLayout here. But left side menu is moving on the front of main content. How can I set it to menu and main content move side by side(menu is pushing content to the right)?

If you dont want to use third-party libraries, you can implement it yourself just overriding the onDrawerSlide from the ActionBarDrawerToggle. There you can translate your framelayout view based on the opening % of your drawer.

Example with code:

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

    <FrameLayout android:id="@+id/content_frame"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"/>    

    <ListView android:id="@+id/left_drawer"
    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.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout>

And here, override onDrawerSlide:

public class ConfigurerActivity extends ActionBarActivity 
{
    private DrawerLayout mDrawerLayout;
    private ListView mDrawerList;
    private ActionBarDrawerToggle mDrawerToggle;
    private FrameLayout frame;
    private float lastTranslate = 0.0f;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
    {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main_layout);

        mDrawerLayout = (DrawerLayout) findViewById(R.id.drawer_layout);
        mDrawerList = (ListView) findViewById(R.id.left_drawer);
        frame = (FrameLayout) findViewById(R.id.content_frame);

        mDrawerToggle = new ActionBarDrawerToggle(this, mDrawerLayout, R.drawable.ic_drawer, R.string.acc_drawer_open, R.string.acc_drawer_close) 
        {            
            @SuppressLint("NewApi")
            public void onDrawerSlide(View drawerView, float slideOffset)
            {
                super.onDrawerSlide(drawerView, slideOffset);
                float moveFactor = (mDrawerList.getWidth() * slideOffset);

                if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.HONEYCOMB) 
                {
                    frame.setTranslationX(moveFactor);
                }
                else
                {
                    TranslateAnimation anim = new TranslateAnimation(lastTranslate, moveFactor, 0.0f, 0.0f);
                    anim.setDuration(0);
                    anim.setFillAfter(true);
                    frame.startAnimation(anim);

                    lastTranslate = moveFactor;
                }
            }
        };

        mDrawerLayout.setDrawerListener(mDrawerToggle);

        // ... more of your code
    }
}

Since setTranslationX is not available in pre-honeycomb android versions, i managed it using TranslateAnimation for lower version devices.

Hope it helps!
