i am having problems trying to update/replace Fragments in a
ViewPager. the problem is that the old fragments simply won't get
replaced by the new ones. i have read a couple of solutions on
stackoverflow, and tried them, but it still doesn't work. anyone have
any ideas why? i will explain what i am trying to do below.

i have a Pojo class

public class Pojo {
 public String text;
 public Pojo(String text) { this.text = text; }

i have a group class, PojoGroup

public class PojoGroup {
 public String title;
 public List<Pojo> pojos;
 public PojoGroup(String title, List<Pojo> pojos) {
  this.title = title;
  this.pojos = pojos;

the idea is that i will bind the PojoGroup to a Fragment. the XML of
the fragment, pojogroup_frag.xml, looks like the following. as you can
see, i will set the tvTitle to PojoGroup.title and bind the list of
Pojo to the ListView.

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="..."
 <TextView android:id="@+id/tvTitle" android:layout_width="..."
 <ListView android:id="@+id/listView" android:layout_width="..."

for completeness, here is my pojo adapter to bind the list of pojos to
the ListView.

public class PojoAdapter extends ArrayAdapter<Pojo> {
 public PojoAdapter(Context ctx, int resId, List<Pojo> objects) {
  super(ctx, resId, objects);
 public View getView(int pos, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {
  View v = convertView;
  if(null == v) {
    Context ctx = getContext();
    LayoutInflater vi =
    v = vi.inflat(R.layout.pojo_row, null);
  TextView tv = (TextView)v.findViewById(R.id.tvText);
  Pojo pojo = getItem(pos);

my pojo_row.xml file looks like the following.

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="..."
 <TextView android:id="@+id/tvText" android:layout_width="..."

my main.xml has a Button and a ViewPager. my MainActivity class looks
like the following.

public class MainActivity extends FragmentActivity {
 PojoGroupPagerAdapter pagerAdapter;
 ViewPager viewPager;

 public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

  Button b = (Button)findViewById(R.id.bReplace);
  b.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
   public void onClick(View v) { generateAndReplaceFrags(); }

  pagerAdapter = new
  viewPager = (ViewPager)findViewById(R.id.pager);

 void generateAndReplaceFrags() {
  //PojoGroupFactory just generates a random List of PojoGroups
  List<PojoGroup> groups = PojoGroupFactory.getPojoGroups();

my pojo fragment, PojoFrag, looks like the following.

public class PojoFrag extends Fragment {
 PojoGroup pojoGroup;
 View view;
 TextView tvTitle;
 ListView listView;

 public PojoFrag(PojoGroup group) { pojoGroup = group; }

 public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup
container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.pojogroup_frag, null);
  listView = (ListView)view.findViewById(R.id.listView);
  tvTitle = (TextView)view.findViewById(R.id.tvTitle);

  List<Pojo> objects = pojoGroup.getPojos();
  listView.setAdapter(new PojoAdapter(getActivity(), R.id.tvText,
  return view;

the PojoGroupPagerAdapter class is not too complex, and this class is
where some of the suggestions on stackoverflow previously suggested
modifications be made. however, it is still not working. i can provide
the full project source code if needed.

public class PojoGroupPagerAdapter extends FragmentPagerAdapter {
 List<PojoGroup> pojoGroups;
 Map<Integer, Fragment> fragments;

 public PojoGroupPagerAdapter(FragmentManager fm) {
  fragments = new HashMap<Integer, Fragment>();

 public Fragment getItem(int position) {
  Integer key = new Integer(position);
  if(fragments.containsKey(key)) {
   return fragments.get(key);

  PojoGroup group = pojoGroups.get(position);
  PojoFrag frag = new PojoFrag(group);
  fragments.put(key, frag);
  return frag;

 public int getCount() {
  return (null == pojoGroups) ? 0 : pojoGroups.size();

 public int getItemPosition(Object object) {
   return POSITION_NONE;

 public void setPojoGroups(List<PojoGroup> pojoGroups) {
  this.pojoGroups = pojoGroups;
  int total = pojoGroups.size();
  for(int i=0; i < total; i++) {
   Integer key = new Integer(i);
   PojoGroup group = pojoGroups.get(i);
   PojoFrag frag = new PojoFrag(group);
   fragments.put(key, frag);

as you can see, i have overridden the getItemPosition(Object) method,
but this still does not help to replace the old view with the new one.
i also played around with FragmentTransaction, but this doesn't work
either. i am attempting to create a new ViewPager object and add it to
the main view. however, i am getting some weird exception (probably
because i have no idea how to construct AttributeSet).

any help with this problem is appreciated.
