Navigation Drawer crashing

I have a navigation drawer and I'm using Android Studio and the NavigationDrawerFragment. Been able to setup my Navigation drawer to call other fragments into view. However now I'm unable to call an intent within a fragment

``import android.content.Context; import android.content.Intent; import android.os.Bundle; import android.support.v4.app.Fragment; import android.view.LayoutInflater; import android.view.View; import android.view.ViewGroup; import android.widget.TextView;

// A placeholder fragment containing a simple view.

public class LoginActivity extends Fragment {

 //The fragment argument representing the section number for this

private static final String ARG_SECTION_NUMBER = "section_number";
public static final String TAG = LoginActivity.class.getSimpleName();
Context mContext;
protected TextView mSignUpTextView;

 // Returns a new instance of this fragment for the given section

public static LoginActivity newInstance(int sectionNumber) {
    LoginActivity fragment = new LoginActivity();
    Bundle args = new Bundle();
    args.putInt(ARG_SECTION_NUMBER, sectionNumber);
    return fragment;

public LoginActivity() {

    mSignUpTextView = (TextView)getActivity().findViewById(R.id.signUpText);
    mSignUpTextView.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener()
        public void onClick(View v)
            Intent intent = new Intent(getActivity(), SignUpActivity.class);



public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
                         Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    final View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.activity_login, container, false);
    mContext = rootView.getContext();

    return rootView;


There is my fragment code. Anything I might be doing wrong?

You are calling getActivity() from the constructor of the Fragment. At that stage the fragment is not attached to your activity. You should call it in an overridden method such as onActivityCreated or onAttach.
