Using TabLayout inside a Fragment; tab text invisible

I'm currently experimenting with various new components in the new Android Support Design library. I've implemented a NavigationView in my MainActivity.java, which uses a FragmentManager to navigate between the items in the Navigation drawer:

getSupportFragmentManager()
    .beginTransaction()
    .replace(R.id.content, mTabLayoutFragment)
    .setTransition(FragmentTransaction.TRANSIT_FRAGMENT_OPEN)
    .commit();

I'm using a TabLayout in one of the fragments. Here is the fragment's layout:

<android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent">

    <android.support.design.widget.TabLayout
        android:id="@+id/tabLayout"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        app:tabMode="fixed"
        app:tabGravity="fill"
        app:theme="@style/ThemeOverlay.AppCompat.Dark.ActionBar"/>

    <android.support.v4.view.ViewPager
        android:id="@+id/viewpager"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:background="@android:color/white"/>

</android.support.design.widget.AppBarLayout>

And the Java code behind it:

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.design.widget.*;
import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentManager;
import android.support.v4.app.FragmentStatePagerAdapter;
import android.support.v4.view.ViewPager;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.ViewGroup;

public class TabLayoutFragment extends Fragment {   


    @Override
    public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                             Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        View inflatedView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_tablayout, container, false);

        TabLayout tabLayout = (TabLayout) inflatedView.findViewById(R.id.tabLayout);
        tabLayout.addTab(tabLayout.newTab().setText("Campusplan"));
        tabLayout.addTab(tabLayout.newTab().setText("Raumplan"));
        final ViewPager viewPager = (ViewPager) inflatedView.findViewById(R.id.viewpager);

        viewPager.setAdapter(new PagerAdapter
                (getFragmentManager(), tabLayout.getTabCount()));
        viewPager.addOnPageChangeListener(new TabLayout.TabLayoutOnPageChangeListener(tabLayout));
        tabLayout.setOnTabSelectedListener(new TabLayout.OnTabSelectedListener() {
            @Override
            public void onTabSelected(TabLayout.Tab tab) {
                viewPager.setCurrentItem(tab.getPosition());
            }

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

            }

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

            }
        });

        return inflatedView;
    }

    public class PagerAdapter extends FragmentStatePagerAdapter {
        int mNumOfTabs;

        public PagerAdapter(FragmentManager fm, int NumOfTabs) {
            super(fm);
            this.mNumOfTabs = NumOfTabs;
        }

        @Override
        public Fragment getItem(int position) {

            switch (position) {
                case 0:
                    TabItem1 tab1 = new TabItem1();
                    return tab1;
                case 1:
                    TabItem1 tab2 = new TabItem1();
                    return tab2;
                default:
                    return null;
            }
        }

        @Override
        public int getCount() {
            return mNumOfTabs;
        }
    }
}

Please note TabItem1 and TabItem1, which are fragments consisting of nothing but a TextView. These two are to be displayed in the TabLayout.

Now, this code seems to be working, to some extent. Here is how it looks like:

What's weird is, after I rotate the device, everything seems to be working just fine:

It seems like something gets called upon a configuration change. This is weird, especially considering that I have following in my AndroidManifest:

android:configChanges="orientation|screenSize"

I face the same problem with new version of android support Design Library v23.1.1. But I just figure it out what happening.

if your view pager has 2 fragment as your mention above, then you set your view pager with this statement:

tabLayout.setupWithViewPager(viewPager);

automatically you will have 2 tabs with empty text. So you should not add new tab anymore. But something you have to do is to set text in that two created tabs.

tabLayout.getTabAt(0).setText("Campusplan");
tabLayout.getTabAt(1).setText("Raumplan");

Conclusion. To make tabs work as you want, important thing you have to do :

tabLayout.setupWithViewPager(viewPager);
tabLayout.getTabAt(0).setText("Campusplan");
tabLayout.getTabAt(1).setText("Raumplan");

I hope this will be helpful for you :)


Update: Design Library v23.0.0 solves this issue.


Found the problem here: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=180462

Simple workaround:

tabLayout.post(new Runnable() {
    @Override
    public void run() {
        tabLayout.setupWithViewPager(viewPager);
    }
});

just tried to override the method in adapter:

public CharSequence getPageTitle(int position) {}

and it works.


The developer working on this library recommends the following work-a-round:

if (ViewCompat.isLaidOut(tabLayout)) {
        tabLayout.setupWithViewPager(viewPager);
    } else {
        tabLayout.addOnLayoutChangeListener(new View.OnLayoutChangeListener() {
            @Override
            public void onLayoutChange(View v, int left, int top, int right, int bottom, int oldLeft, int oldTop, int oldRight, int oldBottom) {
                tabLayout.setupWithViewPager(viewPager);
                tabLayout.removeOnLayoutChangeListener(this);
            }
        });
    }

Lack reputation to comment @arif ardiansyah...

Check the source code:

 `TabLayout#setupWithViewPager(...)` 

 -->>`setPagerAdapter(adapter, true);`

 -->>`populateFromPagerAdapter();`

Here, TabLayout removes all tabs and recreates some new tabs whose text are set with PagerAdapter#getPageTitle(...). So you can override this method to provide Tablayout with your tabs' title.
