Paging indicator widgets compatible with the ViewPager from the Android Support Library and ActionBarSherlock. Originally based on Patrik Åkerfeldt's ViewFlow.

When using the ViewPager widget it is not always obvious to the user that there are adjacent views they can navigate to. By implementing this widget you provide a clear indicator that there exists additional content which they can click or swipe to see.

  1. Include one of the widgets in your view. This should usually be placed adjacent to the ViewPager it represents.
    	android:layout_width="fill_parent" />
  2. In your onCreate method (or onCreateView for a fragment), bind the indicator to the ViewPager.
    //Set the pager with an adapter
    ViewPager pager = (ViewPager)findViewById(;
    pager.setAdapter(new TestAdapter(getSupportFragmentManager()));
    //Bind the title indicator to the adapter
    TitlePageIndicator titleIndicator = (TitlePageIndicator)findViewById(;
  3. (Optional) If you use an OnPageChangeListener with your view pager you should set it in the indicator rather than on the pager directly.
    //continued from above
