Questions:

I’ve been following the navigation drawer guide by Google and I’d like to add it to an Activity with tabs and gestures.

I’d like to disable the gesture to open the navigation drawer, does anyone have any idea how to do this?

How to&Answers:

You should use:

mDrawerLayout.setDrawerLockMode(DrawerLayout.LOCK_MODE_LOCKED_CLOSED);

It worked for me, the swipe to open the drawer was disabled.

If it still won’t work, check out the answer provided here.

Answer:

for locking you can do this:

mDrawerLayout.setDrawerLockMode(DrawerLayout.LOCK_MODE_LOCKED_CLOSED);

and for unlock :

mDrawerLayout.setDrawerLockMode(DrawerLayout.LOCK_MODE_UNLOCKED);

Answer:

Add gravity value too when using setDrawerLockMode();

Do this :

drawerLayout.setDrawerLockMode(DrawerLayout.LOCK_MODE_LOCKED_CLOSED, GravityCompat.END);

This should work like a charm

Answer:

To disable swiping, override onInterceptTouchEvent and onTouchEvent on DrawerLayout and have them return false.

Answer:

The answer to disable swiping is the correct one. I think LOCK_MODE_LOCKED_CLOSED worked in Compat 24.x, but the functionality has been changed in newer compat libraries and LOCK_MODE_LOCKED_CLOSED now completely prevents the nav menu from showing, even via using the hamburger menu.

The following class works for me (Kotlin):

class MyDrawerLayout(ctx: Context) : DrawerLayout(ctx) {
  var isSwipeOpenEnabled: Boolean = true

  override fun onInterceptTouchEvent(ev: MotionEvent): Boolean {
      if (!isSwipeOpenEnabled && !isDrawerVisible(Gravity.START)) {
          return false
      }
      return super.onInterceptTouchEvent(ev)
  }

  @SuppressLint("ClickableViewAccessibility")
  override fun onTouchEvent(ev: MotionEvent): Boolean {
      if (!isSwipeOpenEnabled && !isDrawerVisible(Gravity.START)) {
          return false
      }
      return super.onTouchEvent(ev)
  }
}
