Android Swipe Tabs and ViewPager Examples

Android Tabs Viewpager

In this tutorial you will learn how to use viewpager together with Tabs. This gives you a modern and powerful template as that combination is used in majority of apps in the google play store. Users can navigate to the a given page in the app either by swiping or clicking a given tab.

For Tabs we will use TabLayout API while for swiping obviously the ViewPager.

Here are the concepts you will come out of this tutorial with:

  1. How to create swipable fragments with Viewpager.
  2. How to use Tabs with viewpager.

(a). Siwpable tabs and Viewpager

Step 1: Dependences

No third party dependency is used.

Step 2: Code

We will have three fragments, one activity and one pager adapter. Let’s start by creating our fragments.

CrimeFragment.java

package com.tutorials.hp.swpeandclicktabs;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.Nullable;
import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;

public class CrimeFragment extends Fragment {
    @Nullable
    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        View rootView=inflater.inflate(R.layout.crime_fragment,null);

        return rootView;
    }

    @Override
    public String toString() {
        return "Crime";
    }
}

DramaFragment.java

package com.tutorials.hp.swpeandclicktabs;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.Nullable;
import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;

public class DramaFragment extends Fragment {
    @Nullable
    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        View rootView=inflater.inflate(R.layout.drama_fragment,null);

        return rootView;
    }

    @Override
    public String toString() {
        return "Drama";
    }
}

DocumentaryFragment.java

package com.tutorials.hp.swpeandclicktabs;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.annotation.Nullable;
import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;

public class DocumentaryFragment extends Fragment {

    @Nullable
    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        View rootView=inflater.inflate(R.layout.documentary_fragment,null);

        return rootView;
    }

    @Override
    public String toString() {
        return "Documentary";
    }
}

MyPagerAdapter.java

package com.tutorials.hp.swpeandclicktabs;

import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentManager;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentPagerAdapter;

import java.util.ArrayList;

public class MyPagerAdapter extends FragmentPagerAdapter {

    ArrayList<Fragment> pages=new ArrayList<>();

    public MyPagerAdapter(FragmentManager fm) {
        super(fm);
    }

    @Override
    public Fragment getItem(int position) {
        return pages.get(position);
    }

    @Override
    public int getCount() {
        return pages.size();
    }

    @Override
    public CharSequence getPageTitle(int position) {
        return pages.get(position).toString();
    }

    //ADD A APGE
    public void addPage(Fragment f)
    {
        pages.add(f);
    }
}

MainActivity.java

package com.tutorials.hp.swpeandclicktabs;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton;
import android.support.design.widget.Snackbar;
import android.support.design.widget.TabLayout;
import android.support.v4.view.ViewPager;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.support.v7.widget.Toolbar;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;

import static com.tutorials.hp.swpeandclicktabs.R.id.mTab_ID;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
        setSupportActionBar(toolbar);

        FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);
        fab.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                Snackbar.make(view, "Replace with your own action", Snackbar.LENGTH_LONG)
                        .setAction("Action", null).show();
            }
        });

        ViewPager vp= (ViewPager) findViewById(R.id.mViewpager_ID);
        this.addOurPages(vp);

        //TAB LAYOUT
        TabLayout tabLayout= (TabLayout) findViewById(R.id.mTab_ID);
        tabLayout.setTabGravity(TabLayout.GRAVITY_FILL);
        tabLayout.setupWithViewPager(vp);
        tabLayout.setOnTabSelectedListener(listener(vp));

    }

    //ADD ALL FRAGMENTS
    private void addOurPages(ViewPager pager)
    {
        MyPagerAdapter adapter=new MyPagerAdapter(getSupportFragmentManager());
        adapter.addPage(new CrimeFragment());
        adapter.addPage(new DramaFragment());
        adapter.addPage(new DocumentaryFragment());

        pager.setAdapter(adapter);
    }

    //LISTYENER FOR OUR TABS
    private TabLayout.OnTabSelectedListener listener(final ViewPager pager)
    {
        return new TabLayout.OnTabSelectedListener() {
            @Override
            public void onTabSelected(TabLayout.Tab tab) {
                pager.setCurrentItem(tab.getPosition());
            }

            @Override
            public void onTabUnselected(TabLayout.Tab tab) {

            }

            @Override
            public void onTabReselected(TabLayout.Tab tab) {

            }
        };
    }

}

Example 2: Android Swipe Tabbed SQLite – Fragments With ListView

Android Swipe Tabbed SQLite – Fragments With ListView Tutorial.

  • First we insert data into SQLite database from a material dialog.
  • Then we select according to a given category.
  • The category depends on the tab.
  • Each fragment consist of a ListView.
  • Each ListView has data from a given category.
  • The fragments are swipeable and the tabs are clickeable as well.

Android Project Structure

Constants

  • Holds the database constants.
  • Holds also the tabel creation and deletion statements.
  • Wrapping them in one place makes it easier to reuse and mainatin them from other classes.
    package com.tutorials.hp.tabbedsqlitelistview.mDB;

    public class Constants {
        /*
      COLUMNS
       */
        static final String ROW_ID="id";
        static final String NAME="name";
        static final String CATEGORY="category";

        /*
        DB PROPERTIES
         */
        static final String DB_NAME="lv_DB";
        static final String TB_NAME="lv_TB";
        static final int DB_VERSION=1;

        /*
        TABLE CREATION STATEMENT
         */
        static final String CREATE_TB="CREATE TABLE lv_TB(id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT,"
                + "name TEXT NOT NULL,category TEXT NOT NULL);";

        /*
        TABLE DELETION STMT
         */
        static final String DROP_TB="DROP TABLE IF EXISTS "+TB_NAME;

    }

DBAdapter

  • The class that performs CRUD operations.
  • First we insert data into sqlite from a material dialog.
  • We insert from an edittext as well as category spinner.
  • Then we retrieve according to the category defined by tab title.
    package com.tutorials.hp.tabbedsqlitelistview.mDB;

               Cursor c=db.rawQuery("SELECT * FROM "+Constants.TB_NAME+" WHERE "+Constants.CATEGORY+" = '"+category+"'",null);

                Spacecraft s;
                spacecrafts.clear();

                helper.close();
            }

            return spacecrafts;
