iPhone-Like Tab bar in Android

Public on August 4, 2010
In a previous post we saw how to use the TabHost to create tabs in Android applications. Also we noticed that the Tabs in Android appear at the top of the activity.
but what if we want to give the tabs the look of the iPhone Tab Bar ?

this is possible by wrapping the TabWidget and the FrameLayout in a RelativeLayout container and adding android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" attribute to the TabWidget just like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>


<TabHost android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:id="@android:id/tabhost"
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
>
<RelativeLayout
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
>
<TabWidget
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:id="@android:id/tabs"
android:layout_alignParentBottom="true"
/>
<FrameLayout
android:layout_width="fill_parent"
android:layout_height="fill_parent"
android:id="@android:id/tabcontent"
>

</FrameLayout>
</RelativeLayout>
</TabHost>
