/**
* This is a helper class that implements the management of tabs and all
* details of connecting a ViewPager with associated TabHost. It relies on a
* trick. Normally a tab host has a simple API for supplying a View or
* Intent that each tab will show. This is not sufficient for switching
* between pages. So instead we make the content part of the tab host
* 0dp high (it is not shown) and the TabsAdapter supplies its own dummy
* view to show as the tab content. It listens to changes in tabs, and takes
* care of switch to the correct paged in the ViewPager whenever the selected
* tab changes.

Hi,

I'm getting Null Pointer on super.onSaveInstanceState call in

@Override
protected void onSaveInstanceState(Bundle outState) {
    super.onSaveInstanceState(outState);
    outState.putInt("tab", getSupportActionBar().getSelectedNavigationIndex());
}

i looked up for this problem and as per people's advice, I updated android support library to the latest. This is still happening. Do you have any clue why is this happening?
Thanks

@mixalisAn

is there any way to access tab fragments from my activity?

Working cool! Used it for map fragment as tab with ActionBarSherlock.
