androidandroid-support-libraryandroiddesignsupport

I followed a tutorial of new component NavigationView in Support Design Library and can't get through this error message :

Error inflating class android.support.design.widget.NavigationView

I tried every workaround here

Error when using any Android Design Support Library Elements

but error message still exists.

Edit — add @menu/drawer & @menu/drawer_header & stacktrace

drawer.xml

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <group android:checkableBehavior="single">
        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_first_fragment"
            android:icon="@drawable/home_view"
            android:checked="true"
            android:title="@string/main"/>
        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_second_fragment"
            android:icon="@drawable/comment_view"
            android:title="@string/chat"/>
        <item
            android:id="@+id/nav_third_fragment"
            android:icon="@drawable/user_view"
            android:title="@string/profile"/>
        <item android:title="@string/search">
            <menu>
                <item
                    android:title="@string/clothes"/>
                <item
                    android:title="@string/pants"/>
            </menu>
        </item>
    </group>
</menu>

drawer_header.xml

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="192dp"
    android:background="?attr/colorPrimaryDark"
    android:padding="16dp"
    android:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark"
    android:gravity="bottom">
    <TextView
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="@string/title"
        android:textColor="@android:color/white"
            android:textAppearance="@style/TextAppearance.AppCompat.Body1"/>
</LinearLayout>

StackTrace (only part of them)

It thrown out three exceptions as below : all points out that the problems is caused by the line of "setContentView(layout)" at in layout.xml.

java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to start activity  ComponentInfo{com.ais.cherry/com.ais.cherry.activity.FirstActivity}:    android.view.InflateException: Binary XML file line #32: Error inflating    class android.support.design.widget.NavigationView

Best Solution

Actually it is not the matter of the primarycolortext, upgrading or downgrading the dependencies.This problem will likely occur when the version of your appcompat library and design support library doesn't match.

Example of matching condition

compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1' // appcompat library
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.1.1'       //design support library
