    Hey all! I'm new to the android world but not new to java at all. I basically am having atough time getting my head around the layouts though.

    I basically followed List View | Android Developers
    that tutorial to create a list of data.. Now I would like to add that list of data to an existing tab which I have created using Tab Layout | Android Developers that tutorial.

    I can't seem to figure out how to add my DataListView class to my DataViewTab class. In java layouts i would just create a box layout for DataViewTab and add the DataViewList class object to the BoxLayout...

    Thanks!

    Well that worked to the point where I can see my list, but the list is being overlayed on top of the tab layout so I cant click any tabs, i can only select list items... Should there be any specific code in the class for the tab which I want to display the list?
