implementing designs

Now switch to the ArtistActivity.java file. This also has tabs, but we are going to use icons instead of text. Set the icon for each tab using the setIcon() method, and use the value returned by the PagerAdapter's getIcon() method as the parameter for setIcon().

i got it now: tab.setIcon(pagerAdapter.getIcon(i));

thanx, that helped

Hey Adlight Sibanda ,

This one is very similar to the previous problem. The difference is that you are calling the setIcon() method on the tab and as a parameter you want the returned value of getIcon() method of the pagerAdapter class.

It would look something like this: tab.setIcon(pagerAdapter.getIcon(i));

Here is some more reference on the setIcon method.

crystal clear Ivan !!
