Paging indicator widgets that are compatible with the ViewPager from the Android Support Library to improve discoverability of content.

For Material Design look at PagerSlidingTabStrip


For a working implementation of this project see the sample solution.

  1. Include one of the widgets in your view. This should usually be placed adjacent to the ViewPager it represents.

        android:layout_width="fill_parent" />
  2. In your OnCreate method (or OnCreateView for a fragment), bind the indicator to the ViewPager.

     //Set the pager with an adapter
     var pager = FindViewById<ViewPager>(Resource.Id.pager);
     pager.Adapter = new TestAdapter(SupportFragmentManager);
     //Bind the title indicator to the adapter
     var titleIndicator = FindViewById<TitlePageIndicator>(Resource.Id.titles);
  3. (Optional) If you want to listen for a PageChange event, you should use it on the ViewPagerIndicator, rather than setting an OnPageChangeListener on the ViewPager, otherwise the ViewPagerIndicator will not update.

     //continued from above
     titleIndicator.PageChange += MyPageChangeEventHandler;


There are three ways to style the look of the indicators.

  1. Theme XML. An attribute for each type of indicator is provided in which you can specify a custom style.
  2. Layout XML. Through the use of a custom namespace you can include any desired styles.
  3. Object methods. Both styles have Properties for each style attribute which can be changed at any point.

Each indicator has a demo which creates the same look using each of these methods.

Including In Your Project

ViewPagerIndicator is an Android Library project, which you can reference in your Android Project.

This project depends on the ViewPager class which is available in the Android Support Library.
