 I'd like to achieve similar fragment behaviour as in the Honeycomb
Gmail app. So I have three fragment next to each other: A, B and C.
Initially, A and B is displayed, and when the user selects something
from B, it triggers an sliding-animation/fragment-transaction so that
B and C are visible. B showing the selected item, C showing the
desired content.

Any ideas how the Gmail app does this?

an activity through an intent maybe isn't the right way. Anyone who

wondering if it could have anything to do with the updatePeriod set in
the widget info xml file (
work_registration_widget_info.xml) altough it is set to 24 hours.

I should mention that I tested it on Android 1.5, 1.6 (only for a
small amount time in the emulator), 2.1 and 2.2 and I can't reproduce
the issue he's having.

Anyone who has any idea cause I'm not seeing any solution anymore?!!

I used DroidDraw, however, it had bugs that might destroy previous
