    I have a problem with the implementation of this library. Is there anyone who can help me with implementation process? I am beginning Android programmer, so sometimes I need help :-)

    I wanted to know if you could switch between activities using this sliding navigation, or if it was only used to switch between fragments?
    I am using the latest library, and looking at the ResponsiveUI Demo. I want to have the navigation links on the sliding menu to switch activities instead of fragments. Any idea on how to do that?
    My first thought is to attach click listeners to each item that will send an Intent for a new activity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Francisco, yes, you can, with right flags as no animation and overridingPending animation for starting Intent. But animation of closing menu is not so smooth. I think because of finishing last activity in background. Im using it only for test implementation to existing app, if you desing new one, you probably should use fragments for seamless solution.

    There’s a dependency in ActionBarSherlock in the example project but not in the library project. he Library project is the important part, so why make the example test project so complicated?

    The AboveView is swallowing all events to the behind menu. Makes this pretty useless.

    Does anyone know of any good tutorials on how to get this implemented in a project with Android Studio or IntelliJ (since Android Studio is pretty much build on Intellij). Everything I’ve seen so far is all regarding Eclipse and unfortunately I can’t seem to figure out how to get this to work in Android Studio.

    Is there any way to darken the view that was slid to the side? So the menu would be the regular color/brightness, but the vies that gets pushed over grays out a bit.

    Just make an example that just shows how the the thing is done, combining many works into it makes it hard for newbies

    When trying to include this as Android dependency in Eclipse… it complains that there was already an android-support-v4.jar in the existing project. How can I resolve this issue? Remove one from SlidingMenu project?

      LOL Never mind, it’s a mismatch in version so I updated it to match what I have in the project and the error was gone.

    The left menu opens with the home icon in the left side from action bar. How can I open and close the right menu clicking in a menuitem in the right side of the action bar?
