How to run volley in Fragment?
in Navigation Drawer?

I am doing this:

 public CollegesFragment() {

    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, @Nullable ViewGroup container, @Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_colleges, container, false);

        // Instantiate the RequestQueue.
   RequestQueue queue = Volley.newRequestQueue(this);

        // Request a string response from the provided URL.
        StringRequest stringRequest = new StringRequest(Request.Method.GET, url, new Response.Listener<String>() {
            public void onResponse(String response) {
                // Display the first 500 characters of the response string.
                Toast.makeText(getActivity(), response, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                Log.d("TAG", "hello");
        }, new Response.ErrorListener() {
            public void onErrorResponse(VolleyError error) {


        return rootView;

please give me idea.

Best Solution

before returning the rootView you need to add the following line:


You need to add the request to the RequestQueue.

Also, Volley.newRequestQueue(context) takes a Context as parameter. So you should pass the activity context or the application context.

RequestQueue queue = Volley.newRequestQueue(getActivity().getApplicationContext());

Hope this helps
