I'm trying to expand on the Tab Swipe Application template. I've created a class, say x, which extends AsyncTask which reads from network and update ListView. x.execute(param1) is invoked from the static class DummyFragment.

The problem is i'm confused as to how to pass the context to the following code.

ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, values);

Please shed some light as how to pass the context from a static class which extends Fragment.

Using AsyncTask you can only update the UI(the ListView in this case) on the onPostExecute method. And inside onPostExecute you can call getApplicationContext() to get the context.

    public static class DummySectionFragment extends Fragment {
        public static final String ARG_SECTION_NUMBER = "section_number";
        public DummySectionFragment() {
        }
        @Override
        public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,  Bundle savedInstanceState) {
            new setLV().execute(url);
            View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_main_dummy, container, false);
            lv_headlines = (ListView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.headlines);
            return rootView;
        }
    }
    public static class setLV extends AsyncTask<URL, Void, String[]>{

        @Override
        protected String[] doInBackground(URL... arg0) {
            //initialisation code for sarr_headlines            
            return null;
        }
        protected void onPostExecute(String[] result) {
            la = new ArrayAdapter<String>(getApplicationContext(), android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, 0, sarr_headlines);
            lv_headlines.setAdapter(la); 
         }
    }

Hi, Thanks for the reply.

In the above code setLV is an static class. getApplicationContext() does not work when used inside a static class.

setLV is static because the class DummySectionFragment is also static.

Is there any other way?

I've updated the code.. Please find attached. i'm able to get the context by initialization of a static variable. its solved now.

However when i run the code the 1st tab does not show any values populated in the list unless 3rd tab is opened and then returned to tab1. Is this in any way related to the way i process the context?

Try inverting like this:

public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,  Bundle savedInstanceState) {

            View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_main_dummy, container, false);
            lv_headlines = (ListView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.headlines);

            new setLV().execute(url);

            return rootView;
        }

yup.. tried that too. Still the listview in tab1 does not load.

Really don't know... try adding info log in the DummySectionFragment onCreateView to check if the URL is set at that point.

Also, I think that this would be a better code:

public static class setLV extends AsyncTask<URL, Void, String[]>{

        @Override
        protected String[] doInBackground(URL... arg0) {

            String[] headlines=new String[20];

            for(int i=0; i<=19; i++){
                headlines[i]="welcome " + Integer.toString(i);  
            }

            return headlines;
        }
        protected void onPostExecute(String[] result) {
            sarr_headlines = result;
            la = new ArrayAdapter<String>(context, android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1, 0, sarr_headlines);
            lv_headlines.setAdapter(la); 
         }
    }

Inside doInBackground() you shouldn't access anything that is used by the UI Thread.
