/**
* 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

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

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