android – Navigation Drawer rendering error in ADT Layout Editor

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

<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:background="#111"
    android:choiceMode="singleChoice"
    android:divider="@android:color/transparent"
    android:dividerHeight="0dp" />

Adding that to the layout xml as per Create a Navigation Drawer documentation produces

Exception raised during rendering: DrawerLayout must be measured with MeasureSpec.EXACTLY.
Exception details are logged in Window > Show View > Error Log

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: DrawerLayout must be measured with MeasureSpec.EXACTLY.

How to&Answers:

I have similar problem.
If you want preview layout for a moment, you can temporally change the width and height to absolute.

eg:-

<android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout

    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

    android:layout_width="400px"

    android:layout_height="800px">

Answer:

This is fixed in version 18 of the support library, released in July.

in Eclipse right click your project > select android tools > add support library.

Fixed. 🙂

Answer:

From another Question I solved the problem by extending DrawerLayout, and forcing the correct Measure_Specs:

public class CustomDrawerLayout extends DrawerLayout {

    public CustomDrawerLayout(Context context) {
        super(context);
    }

    public CustomDrawerLayout(Context context, AttributeSet attrs) {
        super(context, attrs);
    }

    public CustomDrawerLayout(Context context, AttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) {
        super(context, attrs, defStyle);
    }

    @Override
    protected void onMeasure(int widthMeasureSpec, int heightMeasureSpec) {
        widthMeasureSpec = MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(
                MeasureSpec.getSize(widthMeasureSpec), MeasureSpec.EXACTLY);
        heightMeasureSpec = MeasureSpec.makeMeasureSpec(
                MeasureSpec.getSize(heightMeasureSpec), MeasureSpec.EXACTLY);
        super.onMeasure(widthMeasureSpec, heightMeasureSpec);
    }

}

Answer:

Asmok’s answer is nice but I’m this type of person always forgetting to reverse such “temporary” edits. (In other words temporary may become very big ^^)

So instead I use the <include> tag and split the layout in two files.

<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">

    <!-- The main content view -->
    <include layout="@layout/main_layout" />

    <!-- The navigation drawer -->
    <include layout="@layout/navigation_drawer"/>
</android.support.v4.widget.DrawerLayout>

For the main layout (which is the UI of the activit in question) I can now use Eclipse’s graphical editor as all the content lives in a single file main_layout.xml.
Furthermore I can easily include the navigation drawer in different activities without the need to copy and paste the code.

Answer:

The easiest solution I found was to put in the preview Theme.Holo.Light.Dialog.FixedSize functional and peaceful …

Answer:

Custom Views are difficult to display correctly for the UI editor in eclipse (same goes for the UI editor in Android Studio). This is normal.
