 Hello everyone,

I am interested in knowing how to create a multi tab gui similar to
the dialer gui. By multi tab i mean the tabs for Dialer, call log,
contacts and favorites.

After searching all over I cannot figure out how to achieve this multi
tab setup. Could someone help me with this?

 To create an activity with tabs you want to use TabActivity
( ). The
dialer code that does this is available at ;a=blob;f=src/com/android/contacts/;h=73d702b80c21d4e7a3af08a3fa025e15e4230b01;hb=HEAD.

2. Notification and PendingIntent

I'm trying to make a notification so when I click it, it jumps to a
specific view inside my app. The problem I'm having is when I try to
retrieve 'extra' data, it all shows up as null.
I'm constructing the notification like this (from inside a Handler):

Notification notif = new Notification(R.drawable.icon, "ticker",

Intent hilight = new Intent(AndroidIRC.this, AndroidIRC.class);
hilight.putExtra("net.androidirc.androidirc.window", window);

PendingIntent contentIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity
(AndroidIRC.this, 0,
                                  hilight, 0);
notif.flags = Notification.FLAG_AUTO_CANCEL;
notif.setLatestEventInfo(AndroidIRC.this, "contentTitle",
"contentText", contentIntent);
                                mNm.notify(AndroidIRC.this.mRequestCode, notif);

The notification shows up fine and when I select it, onPause is called
followed by onResume. I used the de{*filter*} to inspect the Intent gotten
using getIntent() and every time the data is null. Strangely enough,
the logcat output shows this:
starting activity: {...... (has extras) }
but the extras don't appear to exist.
