        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main_drawer, menu);
        // Retrieve the SearchView and plug it into SearchManager
        final SearchView searchView = (SearchView) MenuItemCompat.getActionView(menu.findItem(R.id.action_search));

Answer

You're using the same Menu file for Navigation drawer as well as Menu Items.

Create a different menu file R.menu.menu_main or whatever you want for your Menu items(the one with three dots), this will contain the SearchView.

Create another menu file R.menu.menu_navigation for Navigation drawer, this will contain the items Camera, Gallery, Contacts, Connect, and then attach this Menu file to the Navigation drawer.
