Run all AsyncTasks at start

Basically My app currently opens and displays a tabHost and has 4 tabs(each is actually a fragment).

The app can swipe left and right perfectly.

However the asyncTask of the other fragments only start when i hover over their image.

How can make that all the asynctask of these fragments run without hover over.

Hi Ayman,

I'm catching up on posts that I missed. I don't quite understand the issue without some code...do you have some code you can paste in here for us to take a look at? Where are you spawning the AsyncTasks?

Hi Ben,

Okay i have progressed a lot in my Application at the moment.

At the moment my application is divided into 3 parts.

Splash Screen - Categories - Articles Splash Screen stats off as just an image, and i directly start the 1st Category asyntask. When it finishes loading, it will take me to the categories section of the app. (In which it has 4 tabs, and each tab page is a fragment). Now the loading of the other 3 categories, only happen when the user goes to that fragment. [Is there a way to load them all without having the user to go to that fragment].

On every Fragment, there is an asyntask for that category. The first call always happen when the user hovers over it.

When a post is clicked in the category section, it will take me to the Article section of the app. [Everything there is fine for now].

Let me know which part of the code you want, so i don't paste everything and make it an unreadable post.

Best, Ayman
