It is a simple tab activity demo, group child activity and pager tab example I will share soon. Hope my blog help you. Please follow step by step my blog for create simple Tab Layout-

android tabactivity example
1)Create a new project, name TabHostDemo.
2)Create an  TabHostActivity and extend it to TabActivity.
3)Create 3 other activity name-Homeactivity, AboutActivity, ContactActivity.
4)Create layout activity_tab_host.xml .
5)Create another 3 layout for Home, About, Contact Activity, name activity_home, activity_about, activity_contact.
6)Do optional activity for change tab images on selection.Create ic_tab_home, ic_tab_about, ic_tab_contact.
Note-this step is not must, you can direct put your images in your TabHostActivity-
// Create an Intent to launch an Activity for the tab (to be reused)
intent = new Intent().setClass(this, HomeActivity.class);
spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("home")
.setIndicator("HOME", res.getDrawable(R.drawable.home))//set here
.setContent(intent);
tabHost.addTab(spec);
7)Add images - home.png, about.png, contact.png in drawable download below images-

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_tab_host);

Resources res = getResources(); // Resource object to get Drawables
TabHost tabHost = getTabHost(); // The activity TabHost
TabHost.TabSpec spec; // Reusable TabSpec for each tab
Intent intent; // Reusable Intent for each tab

// Create an Intent to launch an Activity for the tab (to be reused)
intent = new Intent().setClass(this, HomeActivity.class);
spec = tabHost.newTabSpec("home")
