ViewPagerTabs

An implementation of the swipey tabs for the ViewPager from the Android Support Package

ViewPagerTabs Screenshots

IMPORTANT

Please note that this repository is no longer maintained. Look at my ViewPagerExtensions project (especially SwipeyTabsView) for a better implementation of this view.

Usage

For an example of how to use this, see android-viewpagertabs-example

  1. Including In Your Project

    This is an Android library project, you can include it by referencing it as a library project in Eclipse or ant.

    This project depends on the ViewPager class which is available in the Android Support Package. IMPORTANT Make sure to use the latest version of the Support Package!

  2. Include com.astuetz.viewpagertabs.ViewPagerTabs in your view.

    <com.astuetz.viewpagertabs.ViewPagerTabs android:id="@+id/tabs" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:background="#FF3B3B3B" />

    If you want to add a colored line below the tabs, use something like this:

    <View
       android:layout_width="fill_parent"
       android:layout_height="2dip"
       android:background="#FF91A438" />
    

    And then your ViewPager:

    <android.support.v4.view.ViewPager
       android:id="@+id/pager"
       android:layout_width="fill_parent"
       android:layout_height="fill_parent" />
    
  3. In your Activity, bind the ViewPager to the ViewPagerTabs in the onCreate method.

    // Set the pager with an adapter
    ViewPager pager = (ViewPager) findViewById(R.id.pager);
    pager.setAdapter(new ExampleAdapter(this));
    
    // Bind the ViewPager to ViewPagerTabs
    ViewPagerTabs tabs = (ViewPagerTabs) findViewById(R.id.tabs);
    tabs.setViewPager(pager);
    

    Note: The adapter of the ViewPager has to implement ViewPagerTabProvider.

Styling

You can customize the tabs either by xml-attributes or by setter-methods:

  1. Customize by XML-attributes:

    <com.astuetz.viewpagertabs.ViewPagerTabs
    	android:id="@+id/tabs"
    	android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    	android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    	app:backgroundColorPressed="#55333E73"
        app:textColor="#D8D8D8" 
        app:textColorCenter="#FFFC7F" 
        app:lineColorCenter="#FFFC7F"
        app:lineHeight="4dip"
        app:tabPaddingLeft="15dip"
        app:tabPaddingRight="15dip"
        app:tabPaddingBottom="2dip"
        app:tabPaddingTop="5dip"
        app:textSize="12sp" />
    

    Note: Don't forget to define the namespace: xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/your.package.name"

  2. Customize by setter-methods:

    ViewPagerTabs tabs = (ViewPagerTabs) findViewById(R.id.tabs);
    
    tabs.setBackgroundColor(0x00FFFFFF);
    tabs.setBackgroundColorPressed(0x33333333);
    tabs.setTextColor(0x44A80000);
    tabs.setTextColorCenter(0xFFA80000);
    tabs.setLineColorCenter(0xFFA80000);
    tabs.setLineHeight(5);
    tabs.setTextSize(22);
    tabs.setTabPadding(5, 1, 5, 10);
