Just in case anyone doesn't read the comments of passsy's answer, here is a summary of the useful answers:

1) Examine your getItem(int index) method very closely and look for any logic, scenarios or missing 'break' statements which might cause you to end up with a null fragment.

2) Check that the count returned by getCount() matches the number of fragments returned in getItem(int index).

3) Examine your imports and ensure you aren't mixing android.app.Fragment with android.support.v4.app.Fragment

    • This should be the accepted answer. The error stack is thrown on all three accounts. In my case I had not implemented a Fragment class inflating the view for a particular tab. I was under the assumption that returning a null from the getItem() method would render the tab (titles) without their associated Fragments in my Activity. Returning a Fragment for each tab from getItem() solved the issue for me.

    • happened to me and option 1 was the ticket - just sharing - used a switch case inside getItem(int index), and the case labels were 0, 2, 3, also causes same exception. thanks.

It's a simple solution. I mixed android.app.Fragment and android.support.v4.app.Fragment

hope this helps someone

    • Are you sure that was the fix? I have the exact same stacktrace but no instances of android.app.Fragment ...
    • I found the problem, one of the switch cases in my getItem() was falling out to the bottom where there was a default return null.

    • Damm, had a null pointer in getItem as well. So hint to everybody with this error: Check your getItem with a fine comb.
