Various Navigation Type provided in new Android SDK Tools, Revision 20.

In addition to the Master Detail Flow template described in last post, Android SDK Tools Revision 20 also provide various Navigation Type for Blank activity.

To use the template of Navigation Type, minimum SDK version of at least 14 is required.

Provided templates include:

Tabs




- Tabs + Swipe


- Swipe Views + Title Strip


- Dropdown

It's a example of Swipe Views + Title Strip:

Life cycle of Fragment

In order to work with Fragment, Lifecycle of Fragment is a must known issue.

It's a experience to know Lifecycle of Fragment. It display the called lifecycle relate method on screen. Via this experience, you (and me) can know more about it.

Life cycle of Fragment


Create /res/layout/fragmentlayout.xml, the layout of the fragment.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   android:layout_width="fill_parent"
   android:layout_height="fill_parent"
   android:orientation="vertical" >
   <TextView
       android:layout_width="match_parent"
       android:layout_height="wrap_content"
       android:text="It's Fragment" />
   <ImageView
       android:layout_width="match_parent"
       android:layout_height="match_parent"
       android:src="@drawable/ic_launcher"/>
</LinearLayout>

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com.google.ads.AdView

If you have Android Apps with admob, and you update admob API with current ADT (may be ADT-17 or later), may be your code can be compiled without error, but fail in run-time, caused by java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com.google.ads.AdView!

It seem to be problem in ADT with external jars. To solve it:

- Create a libs folder in your project.

- Copy AdMob jar, GoogleAdMobAdsSdk-6.0.1.jar, in the libs folder.

- Update Java Build Path by selecting "Add JARs..." (NOT "Add External JARs...") to add the jar in libs.

AsyncTask run in background thread of a invisible Fragment of ViewPager

Further exercise from last post "Communication between Fragments in ViewPager".

When a button in MyFragmentA clicked, it will start a AsyncTask in MyFragmentC, running in background and update a ProgressBar. When the ProgressBar finished, it will update MyFragmentB. It can be noted that the AsyncTask run in background even MyFragmentC is not in visible screen.

Communication between Fragments in ViewPager

In Previous exercise "ViewPager" (and fix of "NullPointerException of ViewPager when change orientation"), I create a ViewPager with three independent Fragments. Now, I want to make some input (EditText) from Fragment A, then transfer it to Fragment B.

Communication between Fragments in ViewPager


With FragmentManager, we can access another fragment from our current fragment by calling findFragmentByTag(<tag of target fragment>). But, what's the tag of Fragment B? I can't found any method something like setTag()!

Luckly; I found getTag() method to get the tag name of current fragment. So I create a mechanism to access the tag across fragments via the main activity, AndroidViewPagerActivity. - Call getTag() in onCreateView() of MyFragmentB. Then pass it to the main activity AndroidViewPagerActivity. When MyFragmentA need to pass something to MyFragmentB, it retrieve it from AndroidViewPagerActivity.

Modify the main activity, AndroidViewPagerActivity.java, to have a String TabFragmentB; and implement setTabFragmentB() and getTabFragmentB() to access it.
package com.exercise.AndroidViewPager;

import java.util.ArrayList;

import android.app.ActionBar;
import android.app.ActionBar.Tab;
import android.app.FragmentTransaction;
import android.content.Context;
import android.os.Bundle;

import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentActivity;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentPagerAdapter;
import android.support.v4.view.ViewPager;

public class AndroidViewPagerActivity extends FragmentActivity {
 
 ViewPager mViewPager;
 TabsAdapter mTabsAdapter;
 
 String TabFragmentB;
 
 public void setTabFragmentB(String t){
  TabFragmentB = t;
 }
 
 public String getTabFragmentB(){
  return TabFragmentB;
 }
 
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        
        mViewPager = new ViewPager(this);
        mViewPager.setId(R.id.pager);
        setContentView(mViewPager);
        
        final ActionBar bar = getActionBar();
        bar.setNavigationMode(ActionBar.NAVIGATION_MODE_TABS);
        bar.setDisplayOptions(0, ActionBar.DISPLAY_SHOW_TITLE);
        
        mTabsAdapter = new TabsAdapter(this, mViewPager);
        mTabsAdapter.addTab(bar.newTab().setText("Fragment A"),
                MyFragmentA.class, null);
        mTabsAdapter.addTab(bar.newTab().setText("Fragment B"),
          MyFragmentB.class, null);
        mTabsAdapter.addTab(bar.newTab().setText("Fragment C"),
          MyFragmentC.class, null);

        if (savedInstanceState != null) {
            bar.setSelectedNavigationItem(savedInstanceState.getInt("tab", 0));
        }

    }

 @Override

  //super.onSaveInstanceState(outState);
  outState.putInt("tab", getActionBar().getSelectedNavigationIndex());
 }
 
 public static class TabsAdapter extends FragmentPagerAdapter
  implements ActionBar.TabListener, ViewPager.OnPageChangeListener {
  
  private final Context mContext;
        private final ActionBar mActionBar;
        private final ViewPager mViewPager;
        private final ArrayList<TabInfo> mTabs = new ArrayList<TabInfo>();
        
        static final class TabInfo {
            private final Class<?> clss;
            private final Bundle args;

            TabInfo(Class<?> _class, Bundle _args) {
                clss = _class;
                args = _args;
            }
        }

  public TabsAdapter(FragmentActivity activity, ViewPager pager) {
   super(activity.getSupportFragmentManager());
            mContext = activity;
            mActionBar = activity.getActionBar();
            mViewPager = pager;
            mViewPager.setAdapter(this);
            mViewPager.setOnPageChangeListener(this);
        }

  public void addTab(ActionBar.Tab tab, Class<?> clss, Bundle args) {
            TabInfo info = new TabInfo(clss, args);
            tab.setTag(info);
            tab.setTabListener(this);
            mTabs.add(info);
            mActionBar.addTab(tab);
            notifyDataSetChanged();
        }

  }

  @Override

 }

}


Modify MyFragmentA.java and /res/layout/fragment_a.xml to add a ExitText and a Butten to send something.

 @Override
 public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,

  View myFragmentView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_a, container, false);
  
  A_input = (EditText)myFragmentView.findViewById(R.id.a_input);
  A_enter = (Button)myFragmentView.findViewById(R.id.a_enter);

Please notice:
This exercise aim to demonstrate how to communicate between Fragments in ViewPager. But, you have to take care about live-cycle of the Fragments. For example, may be the target Fragment have not yet created when data is passed. Or, the Fragment have been destroyed after data passed. Read more: Life cycle of Fragments in ViewPager.

NullPointerException of ViewPager when change orientation

In my last exercise of "ViewPager", when change orientation, NullPointerException will be thrown in onSaveInstanceState()!

May be it's a bug in ViewPager. Note the class ViewPager is currently under early design and development. May be it will be fixed in later updates.

At this moment, my solution is to comment the statement to call super.onSaveInstanceState(outState).

 @Override
 protected void onSaveInstanceState(Bundle outState) {
  //super.onSaveInstanceState(outState);
  outState.putInt("tab", getActionBar().getSelectedNavigationIndex());
 }

ViewPager

android.support.v4.view.ViewPager is Layout manager that allows the user to flip left and right through pages of data.

Note this class is currently under early design and development. The API will likely change in later updates of the compatibility library, requiring changes to the source code of apps when they are compiled against the newer version.

ViewPager


(This example implement ViewPager using FragmentPagerAdapter. For ViewPager using custom PagerAdapter, read HERE.)

To use compatibility library, Android Support Package is needed. Refer to last post to "Add Android Support Package".

Create three Fragments, each one corresponding to one tab. Please note that the Fragment(s) extends android.support.v4.app.Fragment.

Add Android Support Package

I have a old post "Install and setup Compatibility Package" describe how to include Android Support Package in Java Build Path. I try again it recently, it seem that the method no longer work! When work with android.support.v4.app.FragmentActivity, java.lang.ClassNotFoundException will be thrown.

It can be solved by Add Support Library in Eclipse menu.
- New a Android project target Android 3.0 (API Level 11).

- Modify AndroidManifest.xml to specify minSdkVersion and targetSdkVersion:
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" android:targetSdkVersion="11"/>

- Add Android Support Library.
Right click on the project in Eclipse, select Android Tools, Add Support Library...

Add Support Library...


Accept to install Android Support.

install Android Support Package


- Test it
Modify your activity extends FragmentActivity instead Activity, and import android.support.v4.app.FragmentActivity.

Now you can run it without error.

Split Action Bar for Android 4

The old article demonstrate how to "Create ActionBar using XML" for Android 3.

When your application is running on Android 4.0 (API level 14) and higher, there's an extra mode available for the action bar called "split action bar." When you enable split action bar, a separate bar appears at the bottom of the screen to display all action items when the activity is running on a narrow screen (such as a portrait-oriented handset). Splitting the action bar to separate the action items ensures that a reasonable amount of space is available to display all your action items on a narrow screen, while leaving room for navigation and title elements at the top.

To enable split action bar, simply add uiOptions="splitActionBarWhenNarrow" to your <activity> or <application> manifest element.


Split Action Bar:
Split Action Bar


Normal Action Bar:
Normal Action Bar


- Add android:uiOptions="splitActionBarWhenNarrow" in AndroidManifest.xml.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="com.exercise.AndroidSplitActionBar"
    android:versionCode="1"
    android:versionName="1.0" >

    <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="14" />

    <application
        
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name" >
        <activity
            android:uiOptions="splitActionBarWhenNarrow"
            android:name=".AndroidSplitActionBarActivity"
            android:label="@string/app_name" >
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>

</manifest>


- /res/menu/menu.xml define the items in Action Bar.
<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:id="@+id/itemid_0"
        android:title="Action Item 0"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:orderInCategory="0"
        android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText" />
    <item android:id="@+id/itemid_1"
        android:title="Action Item 1"
        android:orderInCategory="0"
        android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText" />
    <item android:id="@+id/itemid_2"
        android:title="Action Item 2"
        android:orderInCategory="0"
        android:showAsAction="ifRoom|withText" />

</menu>


- Override onCreateOptionsMenu() method to inflate menu.
package com.exercise.AndroidSplitActionBar;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuInflater;

public class AndroidSplitActionBarActivity extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.main);
    }

 @Override
 public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
  MenuInflater menuInflater = getMenuInflater();
        menuInflater.inflate(R.menu.menu, menu);

        return super.onCreateOptionsMenu(menu);
 }

Programmatically create layout and view, with ID assigned by setId().

This example demonstrate how to create layout and view at run time using Java code, instead of XML code. We can assign IDs for the layouts/views by calling setId() mdthod.

Programmatically create layout and view, with ID assigned by setId().

In order to call setId() with named id, create /res/values/ids.xml to define out ID resources.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<resources>
    <item type="id" name="layout_id"/>
    <item type="id" name="image_id" />
</resources>


Main code.
package com.exercise.AndroidSetId;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.view.ViewGroup.LayoutParams;
import android.widget.ImageView;
import android.widget.LinearLayout;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class AndroidSetIdActivity extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        
        LinearLayout layout = new LinearLayout(AndroidSetIdActivity.this);
        layout.setId(R.id.layout_id);
        LayoutParams layoutParams 
         = new LayoutParams(LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT, LayoutParams.MATCH_PARENT);
        layout.setLayoutParams(layoutParams);
        layout.setOrientation(LinearLayout.VERTICAL);
        
        ImageView imageView = new ImageView(AndroidSetIdActivity.this);
        imageView.setId(R.id.image_id);
        imageView.setImageResource(R.drawable.ic_launcher);
        LayoutParams imageViewLayoutParams 
         = new LayoutParams(LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT, LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT);
        imageView.setLayoutParams(imageViewLayoutParams);
