Paging indicator widgets that are compatible with the
ViewPager from the
Android Support Library to improve discoverability of content.
Try out the sample application on the Android Market.
These widgets can also be used in conjunction with ActionBarSherlock!
For a working implementation of this project see the
Include one of the widgets in your view. This should usually be placed adjacent to the
<com.viewpagerindicator.TitlePageIndicator android:id="@+id/titles" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_width="fill_parent" />
onCreateViewfor a fragment), bind the indicator to the
//Set the pager with an adapter ViewPager pager = (ViewPager)findViewById(R.id.pager); pager.setAdapter(new TestAdapter(getSupportFragmentManager())); //Bind the title indicator to the adapter TitlePageIndicator titleIndicator = (TitlePageIndicator)findViewById(R.id.titles); titleIndicator.setViewPager(pager);
(Optional) If you use an
OnPageChangeListenerwith your view pager you should set it in the indicator rather than on the pager directly.
//continued from above titleIndicator.setOnPageChangeListener(mPageChangeListener);
There are three ways to style the look of the indicators.
- Theme XML. An attribute for each type of indicator is provided in which you can specify a custom style.
- Layout XML. Through the use of a custom namespace you can include any desired styles.
- Object methods. Both styles have getters and setters 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.
