Android – How to set a specific tab when opening a Sliding Tab Layout activity


I tried this tutorial and it works great, but now I would like to know if it is possible, when opening the application, to go directly to a specific tab and not the first one (at left) by default ?

Ex : I would like the application to open directly on "events" tab :

I searched into the code, but didn't find anything relevant.

Thanks folks

Here is the way :
Just add pager.setCurrentItem(1); in your MainActivity (the tabs container).

Best Solution

ViewPager is most often used in conjunction with Fragment, which is a convenient way to supply and manage the lifecycle of each page.

You can use setCurrentItem // Set the currently selected page.

Set the currently selected page. If the ViewPager has already been through its first layout with its current adapter there will be a smooth animated transition between the current item and the specified item.


Your_View_Pager_Obj.setCurrentItem(1); // call into onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
