Exception or error:

The error started to appear only after I started using fragments in the project

here is my code..

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

i also seen this same problem in this link and i apply his solution but it wont work for me.. i m still stuck, help me.
so check my code and suggest me where what i missing.

How to solve:

oh yes.. i finally found my mistake.. first of all there is no mistake in my code. everything is right.

i have three tab layout and i m passing only for one tablayout and other two are getting null, so i must have to apply three switch case statement.

 public Fragment getItem(int position) {

    Fragment fragment = null;
    switch(position){
        case product_result:
            fragment = FragmentProduct.newInstance("","");
            break;
    }
    return fragment;
}

instead

  public Fragment getItem(int num) {
        Fragment fragment = null;
        switch (num) {
            case TAB_PRODUCT_RESULT:
                fragment = FragmentProduct.newInstance("", "");
                break;
            case TAB_SECOND:
                fragment = MyFragment.getInstance(num);
                break;
            case TAB_THIRD:
                fragment = MyFragment.getInstance(num);
                break;
        }
        return fragment;
    }

thats it..

###

I think the problem is in the public Fragment getItem(int position) method of your MyPagerAdapter. Your code snippet below is returning null fragments.

Fragment fragment = null;
switch(position){
    case product_result:
        fragment = FragmentProduct.newInstance("","");
        break;
    }
return fragment;

You only get a real fragment for the position 0, because product_result is initialized to 0. In all other cases it returns null. Modify the above snippet of code to always return a fragment instance that is not null.

###

I had similar problem, I tried to remove null fragment and this cause error. Null check solved problem. Check your fragment transactions. You can’t add null fragment.

Fragment fragment = null;
if (fragment != null)
   getSupportFragmentManager().beginTransaction()
           .add(R.id.container, fragment, "id").commit();

###

First You Have To Add Adapter in your Activity like this


——- This is Adding number of tab layout according to size of data ————

    for (FirstModel firstModel : list_editdata) {
        tabLayout.addTab(tabLayout.newTab().setText(firstModel.getTitle()));
    }

     **/////Set an Adapter** 

SectionAdapter  mSectionAdapter   = new SectionAdapter(getSupportFragmentManager());
    viewPager.setAdapter(mSectionAdapter);

now Add An Adapter in Activity :
I take One Fragments and use in switch case repeatedly This Will automatically regenerate according to your tab layout numbers in Activity


public class SectionAdapter  extends FragmentPagerAdapter {

    private String[] tabTitles = new String[]{"", "", "", ""};


    public SectionAdapter (FragmentManager fm) {
        super(fm);
    }


    @Override
    public CharSequence getPageTitle(int position) {
        return tabTitles[position];
    }


    @Override
    public Fragment getItem(int position) {


        switch (position) {

            case 0:
                Tab1 tab1 = new Tab1();
                return tab1 ;
            case 1:
                Tab1 tab2 = new Tab1();
                return tab2 ;
            case 2:
                Tab1 tab3 = new Tab1();
                return tab3 ;
            case 3:
                Tab1 tab4 = new Tab1();
                return tab4 ;

        }


        return null;


    }
