Java Question

Default Navigation Drawer View to ExpandableListView

In Android Studio 2.1.2, if i create a default navigation activity I get this view:

enter image description here

Which uses the following

activity_main.xml
file:

<?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>


As you can see
<android.support.design.widget.NavigationView/>
uses
app:menu="@menu/activity_main_drawer"
for displaying list of menu defined in
activity_main_drawer.xml
file as follows:

<?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_camera"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_camera"
android:title="Import" />
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_gallery"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_gallery"
android:title="Gallery" />
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_slideshow"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_slideshow"
android:title="Slideshow" />
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_manage"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_manage"
android:title="Tools" />
</group>

<item android:title="Communicate">
<menu>
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_share"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_share"
android:title="Share" />
<item
android:id="@+id/nav_send"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_menu_send"
android:title="Send" />
</menu>
</item>

</menu>


Now my plan is to replace this menu list defined in
activity_main_drawer.xml
and instead use an
ExpandableListView
. Because I want my menu items to have subcategories, for example, menu item
Cars
will have sub category of
Diesel
,
Petrol
and
Hybrid
etc. I have done research and it appears no one has the exact working solution I need.

I looked here:


  1. The Open Tutorials

  2. Implement expandablelistview in navigation drawer activity made by android studio

  3. Android: 2 or more ExpandableListView inside Navigation Drawer

  4. How to create an expandable listView inside navigation drawer?



and the subsequent links mentioned there.

N.B: The links above mentions the use of
ListView
in navigation drawer which is no longer the case as Android Studio achieves this by using
menu
item using
activity_main_drawer.xml
.

Can someone please provide me an working example of this?
To re-iterate, I want an expandable list view inside the default navigation drawer activity. Ive gathered that I'll need XML files and java class codes to get me the foundation I need to get started.

Thanks in advance. :)

EDIT: Final look mockup (excuse my photoshop skills)enter image description here

My current approach is to create a new layout
ex_list
as follows:

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

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


and edit
activity_main.xml
to

<?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="240dp"
android:layout_gravity = "start"
android:layout_height="match_parent"

android:fitsSystemWindows="true"
app:headerLayout="@layout/nav_header_main">
<include
layout="@layout/ex_list"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_width="match_parent"/>

</android.support.design.widget.NavigationView>


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


Which results to following layout:

Thanks @Moulesh !!!

Answer

This is code for expandable list adapter.......

public class ExpandListAdapter extends BaseExpandableListAdapter {
private Context _context;
private List<String> _listDataHeader; // header titles
// child data in format of header title, child title
private HashMap<String, List<String>> _listDataChild;

public ExpandListAdapter(Context context, List<String> listDataHeader,
                         HashMap<String, List<String>> listChildData) {
    this._context = context;
    this._listDataHeader = listDataHeader;
    this._listDataChild = listChildData;
}

@Override
public Object getChild(int groupPosition, int childPosititon) {
    return this._listDataChild.get(this._listDataHeader.get(groupPosition))
            .get(childPosititon);
}

@Override
public long getChildId(int groupPosition, int childPosition) {
    return childPosition;
}

@Override
public View getChildView(int groupPosition, final int childPosition,
                         boolean isLastChild, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {

    final String childText = (String) getChild(groupPosition, childPosition);

    if (convertView == null) {
        LayoutInflater infalInflater = (LayoutInflater) this._context
                .getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
        convertView = infalInflater.inflate(R.layout.list_item, null);
    }

    TextView txtListChild = (TextView) convertView
            .findViewById(R.id.lblListItem);

    txtListChild.setText(childText);
    return convertView;
}

@Override
public int getChildrenCount(int groupPosition) {
    return this._listDataChild.get(this._listDataHeader.get(groupPosition))
            .size();
}

@Override
public Object getGroup(int groupPosition) {
    return this._listDataHeader.get(groupPosition);
}

@Override
public int getGroupCount() {
    return this._listDataHeader.size();
}

@Override
public long getGroupId(int groupPosition) {
    return groupPosition;
}

@Override
public View getGroupView(int groupPosition, boolean isExpanded,
                         View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
    String headerTitle = (String) getGroup(groupPosition);
    if (convertView == null) {
        LayoutInflater infalInflater = (LayoutInflater) this._context
                .getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
        convertView = infalInflater.inflate(R.layout.list_group, null);
    }

    TextView lblListHeader = (TextView) convertView
            .findViewById(R.id.lblListHeader);
    lblListHeader.setTypeface(null, Typeface.BOLD);
    lblListHeader.setText(headerTitle);

    return convertView;
}

@Override
public boolean hasStableIds() {
    return false;
}

@Override
public boolean isChildSelectable(int groupPosition, int childPosition) {
    return true;
}}

In your activity:

     private void enableExpandableList() {
      listDataHeader = new ArrayList<String>();
      listDataChild = new HashMap<String, List<String>>();
    expListView = (ExpandableListView) findViewById(R.id.left_drawer);

    prepareListData(listDataHeader, listDataChild);
    listAdapter = new ExpandListAdapter(this, listDataHeader, listDataChild);
    // setting list adapter
    expListView.setAdapter(listAdapter);

    expListView.setOnGroupClickListener(new ExpandableListView.OnGroupClickListener() {

        @Override
        public boolean onGroupClick(ExpandableListView parent, View v,
                                    int groupPosition, long id) {
            // Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
            // "Group Clicked " + listDataHeader.get(groupPosition),
            // Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            return false;
        }
    });
    // Listview Group expanded listener
    expListView.setOnGroupExpandListener(new ExpandableListView.OnGroupExpandListener() {

        @Override
        public void onGroupExpand(int groupPosition) {
            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
                    listDataHeader.get(groupPosition) + " Expanded",
                    Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }
    });

    // Listview Group collasped listener
    expListView.setOnGroupCollapseListener(new ExpandableListView.OnGroupCollapseListener() {

        @Override
        public void onGroupCollapse(int groupPosition) {
            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
                    listDataHeader.get(groupPosition) + " Collapsed",
                    Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

        }
    });

    // Listview on child click listener
    expListView.setOnChildClickListener(new ExpandableListView.OnChildClickListener() {

        @Override
        public boolean onChildClick(ExpandableListView parent, View v,
                                    int groupPosition, int childPosition, long id) {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
            // Temporary code:

            // till here
            Toast.makeText(
                    getApplicationContext(),
                    listDataHeader.get(groupPosition)
                            + " : "
                            + listDataChild.get(
                            listDataHeader.get(groupPosition)).get(
                            childPosition), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT)
                    .show();
            return false;
        }
    });}

Method to create List with data:

   private void prepareListData(List<String> listDataHeader, Map<String,
  List<String>> listDataChild) {


    // Adding child data
    listDataHeader.add("Product1");
    listDataHeader.add("product2");
    listDataHeader.add("Product3");

    // Adding child data
    List<String> top = new ArrayList<String>();
    top.add("x1");
    top.add("x2");
    top.add("x3");
    top.add("x4");
    top.add("x5");


    List<String> mid = new ArrayList<String>();
    mid.add("y1");
    mid.add("y2");
    mid.add("y3");

    List<String> bottom = new ArrayList<String>();
    bottom.add("z1");
    bottom.add("z2");
    bottom.add("z3");



    listDataChild.put(listDataHeader.get(0), top); // Header, Child data
    listDataChild.put(listDataHeader.get(1), mid);
    listDataChild.put(listDataHeader.get(2), bottom);
}
