The library is a DrawerLayout-like ViewGroup, where a "drawer" is hidden under the content view, which can be shifted to make the drawer visible. It doesn't provide you with a drawer builder.


Add this into your dependencies block.

compile 'com.yarolegovich:sliding-root-nav:1.1.0' 


Please see the sample app for a library usage example.



  1. Create your content_view.xml ( example) or construct a View programatically.
  2. Set the content view (for example, using setContentView in your activity).
  3. Create your menu.xml ( example) or construct a View programatically.
  4. Now you need to inject the menu in your onCreate. You can specify transformations of a content view or use the default ones.
new SlidingRootNavBuilder(this)



You can specify root transformations using SlidingRootNavBuilder.

new SlidingRootNavBuilder(this)
.withDragDistance(140) //Horizontal translation of a view. Default == 180dp
.withRootViewScale(0.7f) //Content view's scale will be interpolated between 1f and 0.7f. Default == 0.65f;
.withRootViewElevation(10) //Content view's elevation will be interpolated between 0 and 10dp. Default == 8.
.withRootViewYTranslation(4) //Content view's translationY will be interpolated between 0 and 4. Default == 0

customTransformation in the above example is a user-created class that implements RootTransformation interface. For an example, refer to the default transformations.

Menu behavior

new SlidingRootNavBuilder(this)
.withMenuOpened(true) //Initial menu opened/closed state. Default == false
.withMenuLocked(false) //If true, a user can't open or close the menu. Default == false.
.withGravity(SlideGravity.LEFT) //If LEFT you can swipe a menu from left to right, if RIGHT - the direction is opposite. 
.withSavedState(savedInstanceState) //If you call the method, layout will restore its opened/closed state
.withContentClickableWhenMenuOpened(isClickable) //Pretty self-descriptive. Builder Default == true

Controling the layout

A call to inject() returns you an interface for controlling the layout.

public interface SlidingRootNav {

  boolean isMenuClosed();

  boolean isMenuOpened();

  boolean isMenuLocked();

  void closeMenu();

  void closeMenu(boolean animated);

  void openMenu();

  void openMenu(boolean animated);

  void setMenuLocked(boolean locked);

  SlidingRootNavLayout getLayout();
 //If for some reason you need to work directly with layout - you can 


  • Drag progress:
  public interface DragListener {

void onDrag(float progress);
 //Float between 0 and 1, where 1 is a fully visible menu 
  • Drag state changes:
  public interface DragStateListener {

void onDragStart();

void onDragEnd(boolean isMenuOpened);
  • Compatibility with DrawerLayout.DrawerListener:
DrawerListenerAdapter adapter = new DrawerListenerAdapter(yourDrawerListener, viewToPassAsDrawer);
