Android Custom Tabs.

In this post I customized the android TabWidget color,background,border and many of the TabWidget properties .To do is myself I used the this tutorial.Based on that tutorial I done the modifications in my project.

The xml layout file for the Tabs as like this

        <TabHost
                android:id="@android:id/tabhost"
                android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                android:visibility="visible">
                <LinearLayout
                    android:orientation="vertical"
                    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                    android:layout_height="fill_parent">
                    <TabWidget
                        android:id="@android:id/tabs"
                        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                        android:background="#000000"
                        android:padding="1dip"/>
                    <FrameLayout
                        android:id="@android:id/tabcontent"
                        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                        android:layout_height="wrap_content">
                        <ListView
                            android:id="@+id/email_listview"
                            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                            android:dividerHeight="2dip"
                            android:layout_marginTop="2dip"
                            android:layout_marginBottom="2dip"
                            android:background="@drawable/my_border"
                            android:scrollbars="vertical"
                            android:cacheColorHint="#bebebe"
                            android:scrollbarSize="35dip"
                            android:scrollingCache="true"/>
                          <ListView
                            android:id="@+id/domain_listview"
                            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                            android:dividerHeight="2dip"
                            android:layout_marginTop="2dip"
                            android:layout_marginBottom="2dip"
                            android:background="@drawable/my_border"
                            android:cacheColorHint="#bebebe"
                            android:scrollbars="vertical"
                            android:scrollbarSize="35dip"
                            android:scrollingCache="true"/>
                           <ListView
                            android:id="@+id/phrase_listview"
                            android:layout_width="fill_parent"
                            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
                            android:dividerHeight="2dip"
                            android:layout_marginTop="2dip"
                            android:layout_marginBottom="2dip"
                            android:background="@drawable/my_border"
                            android:cacheColorHint="#bebebe"
                            android:scrollbars="vertical"
                            android:scrollbarSize="35dip"
                            android:scrollingCache="true"/>
                         
                    </FrameLayout>
                </LinearLayout>
            </TabHost>



Define the my_border.xml drawable file under the drawable folder. This is used to define the custom drawables (here is for custom border for listview.


<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <stroke android:width="2dp" android:color="#FFFF00" />
    <padding android:left="2dp" android:top="0dp"
            android:right="2dp" android:bottom="0dp" />
    <solid android:color="#bebebe" />
    <corners android:radius="4dp" />
</shape>



In the main Activity write java code like this.



private TabHost tabhost;
display = getWindowManager().getDefaultDisplay();
width = display.getWidth()/5+2;
height = display.getHeight();
tabhost=(TabHost)findViewById(android.R.id.tabhost);
tabhost.setup();

//This is the devider drawable between to widgets.
tabhost.getTabWidget().setDividerDrawable(R.drawable.devider);

TabHost.TabSpec spec;
       
        View view1 = getLayoutInflater().inflate(R.layout.tabs_bg,null);
        TextView tv1 = (TextView) view1.findViewById(R.id.tabsText);
        tv1.setText("Email");
        spec = tabhost.newTabSpec("email").setIndicator(tv1);
        spec.setContent(R.id.email_listview);
        tabhost.addTab(spec);
       
        View view = getLayoutInflater().inflate(R.layout.tabs_bg,null);
        TextView tv = (TextView) view.findViewById(R.id.tabsText);
        tv.setText("Domain");
        spec = tabhost.newTabSpec("domain").setIndicator(tv);
        spec.setContent(R.id.domain_listview);
        tabhost.addTab(spec);
       
        View view2 = getLayoutInflater().inflate(R.layout.tabs_bg,null);
        TextView tv2 = (TextView) view2.findViewById(R.id.tabsText);
        tv2.setText("Phrase");
        spec = tabhost.newTabSpec("phrase").setIndicator(tv2);
        spec.setContent(R.id.phrase_listview);
        tabhost.addTab(spec);
       
        tabhost.setCurrentTab(0);
        tabhost.getTabWidget().getChildAt(0).getLayoutParams().height = 60;
        tabhost.getTabWidget().getChildAt(1).getLayoutParams().height = 60;
        tabhost.getTabWidget().getChildAt(2).getLayoutParams().height = 60;
       

The devider.xml file is as follows res/drawable.devider.xml



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shape="rectangle">
    <gradient android:startColor="#000000" android:centerColor="#000000"
        android:endColor="#000000"    android:angle="-90" />
    <size android:width="1dip" />
</shape>



tabs_bg.xml layout file defines the layout for the tabwidget. res/layout/tabs_bg.xml



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<TextView xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:id="@+id/tabsText"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
