Edit and Customize the Navigation Drawer

1. Open the previous project or if you haven’t seen our previous post check it at : Add Floating Share Option To Your Application
2. Open the menu folder and then activity_main_drawer.xml file

{ See Above Video }
3. Edit the icons and the name according to your wish
* See how i add Vector images to the drawable file
* Select the folder Drawable
* Right click the mouse and select new then select Vector Asset
* Select the image from those provided
* Edit the ID

The ID you give must me same both in the Java codes and in the XML part.

4. Go to MainActivity.java file and add the codes
* Links that are to be loaded when the options are clicked should be provided instead of https://www.codeseasy.com
5. Build the APK . Done .

Java Codes :

if (id == R.id.home) {
} else if (id == R.id.androiddev) {
} else if (id == R.id.androidstudio) {
} else if (id == R.id.blog) {
} else if (id == R.id.share) {
final Intent intent = new Intent("android.intent.action.SEND");
intent.putExtra("android.intent.extra.SUBJECT","Codes Easy");
intent.putExtra("android.intent.extra.TEXT","Add your text to be shared here and a link of your application so that others can download it .");
startActivity(intent.createChooser(intent,"Share :"));
} else if (id == R.id.exit) {
new AlertDialog.Builder(this)
.setMessage("Are you sure to exit ?")
.setPositiveButton("Yes", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
.setNegativeButton("No", null)
