    Question Cant use seekbar within android app(navigation) drawer from a fragment?

    Basically I've created an app drawer and placed a seekbar within it. This app drawer is made up from app_drawer.xml whilst my fragment below is made up from main_activity.xml.

    The issue I'm having is, although the seekbar shows up perfectly and the app drawer pulls in and out as it should, when I drag it nothing happens (By which I mean the textview is NOT updated)

    Even though it should

    Before anyone suggests that the seekbar is the problem, it is part of a listener event which means it is called every-time progress changes. So it won't be destroyed when oncreate finishes.

    - I have attempted to run seekbar normally on the same xml as
    everything else and it works fine.

    The problem is to do with the fact I'm attempting to utilise 2 xml files in the below fashion.


    I was thinking it may have something to do with the parameter ''container''. I also considered it may have something to do with the fact I'm only returning rootView not rootView and rootView2.


    How do I get this to work correctly?

    My fragment code is below:

         public class MainActivity extends Fragment {
     
                    @Override
                    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                            Bundle savedInstanceState) {
     
                        View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.main_activity, container, false);
                        View rootView2 = inflater.inflate(R.layout.app_drawer, container, false);
     
     
     
               	 final SeekBar sk=(SeekBar) rootView2.findViewById(R.id.seekBar1);  
                 TextView textProgress = (TextView)rootView.findViewById(R.id.TextView01);
     
                      sk.setOnSeekBarChangeListener(new OnSeekBarChangeListener() {   
     
                      public void onProgressChanged(SeekBar bar, int progress,
                      		boolean fromUser) {
     
         textProgress.setText("Progress: "+ String.valueOf(progress));
            }
              		@Override
              		public void onStartTrackingTouch(SeekBar seekBar) {
              			// TODO Auto-generated method stub
     
              		}
     
              		@Override
              		public void onStopTrackingTouch(SeekBar seekBar) {
              			// TODO Auto-generated method stub
     
              		}
                      });
     
                        return rootView;
                    }
                }

    Set the attachToRoot parameter of rootView2 to true.

    //View rootView2 = inflater.inflate(R.layout.app_drawer, container, false);
     
    //Change to this:
    View rootView2 = inflater.inflate(R.layout.app_drawer, container, true);

    When attachToRoot is false the layout is inflated but isn't attached to the root layout so it won't fire the event.

    Can you put the project files in a zip file and attach it here for testing?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
