getIcon error!


i keep getting an error that says cannot resolve?

1 Answer


getIcon is a function in the SectionsPagerAdapter.java file. I would check to make sure that function exists and is set to public.


public int getIcon(int pos) {

        switch (pos) {
            case 0:
                return R.drawable.ic_tab_inbox;
            case 1:
                return R.drawable.ic_tab_friends;
                return R.drawable.ic_tab_inbox;
