android – FragmentPagerAdapter deprecated

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


Since API 27 FragmentPagerAdapter is deprecated. What’s the best alternative to use for this?

In my case, I understand something like super(fragmentManager, BEHAVIOR_RESUME_ONLY_CURRENT_FRAGMENT) would need to be used, but I don’t know where within my code this needs to go.

I got these imports in my class:

import androidx.fragment.app.FragmentManager
import androidx.fragment.app.FragmentPagerAdapter

but FragmentPagerAdapter in class MyViewPagerAdapter(manager: FragmentManager) : FragmentPagerAdapter(manager){ is crossed out.

class MyViewPagerAdapter(manager: FragmentManager) : FragmentPagerAdapter(manager){
        private val fragmentList : MutableList<androidx.fragment.app.Fragment> = ArrayList()
        private val titleList : MutableList<String> = ArrayList()

        override fun getItem(position: Int): androidx.fragment.app.Fragment {
            return fragmentList[position]

        override fun getCount(): Int {
            return fragmentList.size

        fun addFragment(fragment: androidx.fragment.app.Fragment, title: String){

        override fun getPageTitle(position: Int): CharSequence? {
            return titleList[position]
How to&Answers:


class MyViewPagerAdapter(manager: FragmentManager) : FragmentPagerAdapter(manager)


class MyViewPagerAdapter(manager: FragmentManager) : FragmentPagerAdapter(manager, FragmentPagerAdapter.BEHAVIOR_RESUME_ONLY_CURRENT_FRAGMENT)

(assuming that MyViewPagerAdapter does not need this value to be configurable)


The javadocs actually has the following deprecation notice on FragmentPagerAdapter:

This class is deprecated.

Switch to ViewPager2 and use FragmentStateAdapter instead.
