How to Inflate a BottomNavigationView in Android?

I'm trying to Inflate a BottomNavigationView programmatically into every activity that will use that menu rather then adding it into XML multiple times. Anyone got any experience dealing with this?

My next issue is how to handle swapping activities when a BottomNavigationView Item is clicked, If I send to a completely new activity the menu bar will reset to the first item. I need the nav to look like the menu bar isn't being reloaded on every click.

Hope that makes sense!

Many thanks, Adam
