MenuInflater

Class Overview

This class is used to instantiate menu XML files into Menu objects.

For performance reasons, menu inflation relies heavily on pre-processing of XML files that is done at build time. Therefore, it is not currently possible to use MenuInflater with an XmlPullParser over a plain XML file at runtime; it only works with an XmlPullParser returned from a compiled resource (R. something file.)
