MaterialTabs

Custom Tabs with Material Design animations for pre-Lollipop devices

Download example apk

It requires 14+ API and android support v7 (Toolbar)

IMPORTANT NOTICE

This library is no longer supported.
I have not enough time to continue developing at this time and the android design support library implements the tabs features in the better way, so I think it is useless now. If anyone wants to keep alive this library they can send pull requests AFTER testing the code and exmplaining what they have changed and why. Thanks to all contributors

Dependency: Android-UI Reveal Color View
If you are using MaterialTabs in your app and would like to be listed here, please let me know via email!

How to use:

define it in xml layout with custom attributes

<!-- for Text Tabs -->
<it.neokree.materialtabs.MaterialTabHost
        android:id="@+id/materialTabHost"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="48dp"
        app:textColor="#FFFFFF"
        app:primaryColor="YOUR_PRIMARY_COLOR"
        app:accentColor="YOUR_ACCENT_COLOR" />
<!-- for icon tabs --> 
<it.neokree.materialtabs.MaterialTabHost
        android:id="@+id/materialTabHost"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="48dp"
        app:iconColor="#FFFFFF"
        app:primaryColor="YOUR_PRIMARY_COLOR"
        app:accentColor="YOUR_ACCENT_COLOR"
        app:hasIcons="true"/>

( I'm working on use wrap_content instead 48dp)

Connect to java code and add to viewPager

MaterialTabHost tabHost;

@Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        tabHost = (MaterialTabHost) this.findViewById(R.id.materialTabHost);
        pager = (ViewPager) this.findViewById(R.id.viewpager);

        // init view pager
        pagerAdapter = new ViewPagerAdapter(getSupportFragmentManager());
        pager.setAdapter(pagerAdapter);
        pager.setOnPageChangeListener(new ViewPager.SimpleOnPageChangeListener() {
            @Override
            public void onPageSelected(int position) {
                // when user do a swipe the selected tab change
                tabHost.setSelectedNavigationItem(position);
            }
        });

        // insert all tabs from pagerAdapter data
        for (int i = 0; i < pagerAdapter.getCount(); i++) {
            tabHost.addTab(
                    tabHost.newTab() 
                            .setIcon(getIcon(i))
                            .setTabListener(this)
                            );
    }
}

@Override
    public void onTabSelected(MaterialTab tab) {
        // when the tab is clicked the pager swipe content to the tab position
        pager.setCurrentItem(tab.getPosition());

    }

N.B. Your activity must extends ActionBarActivity implements MaterialTabListener
