UPDATE 03/33/2020:
- Do not use this Library anymore. I suggest to use b4xdrawer.

This thread is about the beta phase of my newest wrap. It is a wrap for this Github project: Material Drawer by Mike Penz

At present the library is based on Version 5.8.1 of the Github project


MaterialDrawer
Author:
Mike Penz (Github) / DonManfred (wrapper)
Version: 0.9 beta

Attachments:
MaterialDrawerEx1.zip
this contains the (most probably a bit chaotic) code for the example i build so far.
So i just tried out how work this, and this and the code came up chaotic....
I´m sure more examples will follow in future. Maybe made from one of the beatestes? (grins)

MaterialDrawerResources.zip
this zip contains the folder "resource"
copy this folder to your Project or maybe to your additional libraries folder.
you need to adapt the #additionalres directive to match your folder

MaterialDrawerFONTS1.zip and MaterialDrawerFONTS2.zip
Copy all files to your additional libs folder

MaterialDrawerAAR.zip
Contains all needed AAR files. Copy them all to your additional libs folder

The library depends on some other JARs from the google Maven repository.

Post any questions regarding this librarywrap in this Thread please.

Note that this library wrap is in development and subject to be changed before releasing the library.

The example at present state shows all i have tried so far.
Some features are not tested at all.
Some features does not work as yet. The profile and everything about the profileheaderdraweritem for example.


Known problems:
- For me the Drawer will show behind the Actionbar. Due to this the layout in the top area is not placed correctly.
I think it must be changed in the theme somehow but i´m sorr, i do not know how to fix this. Any help on this is highly appreciated!



This library is Donationware. You can download the library, you can test the library. But if you want to USE the library in your App you need to Donate for it. I spend A LOT of time to build this library.

Please click here to donate for my work to write the wrapper (You can donate any amount you want :))

I didn't took a closer look at the library and example for now.

For my understanding it is not possible to show the drawer behind an ActionBar because the ActionBar is a system component and is always shown on top.
You have to use a ToolBar which is part of the UI layout of the application and can be placed behind the drawer then.

Does the drawer show behind the (transparent) status bar? This was a main problem I had when I created the NavigationDrawer object in the DesignSupport library.

I got it only right when I created the layout by XML files and not by code.

It worked for me, placing this on the manifest:

SetApplicationAttribute(android:label, "$LABEL$")

'End of default text.

SetApplicationAttribute(android:theme, "@style/MyAppTheme")

    </style>
</resources>

It happens when you reference many libraries with internal resources.

You can solve it by editing the AndroidManifest.xml file that is in the AAR projects (use 7zip to open them) and change the package name to be the same as other packages.

For example find the one with package name de.amberhome.objects (one of corwin42's libraries) and change it to de.amberhome.objects.appcompat.
