I need to replace a Fragment in one Activity with another Fragment, below is the layer file of the Activity:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<FrameLayout
  xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="fill_parent"
  android:layout_height="fill_parent"
  android:id="@+id/home_layout_container">

    <fragment android:name="com.foo.FragA"
        android:id="@+id/home_list"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="fill_parent" />

    </FrameLayout>

so by default there is FragA, now I want to replace it with FragB in activity, I did:

public void onRegionClicked(Region region) {
    RegionInfoFragment rif = RegionInfoFragment.newInstance(region);
    FragmentTransaction ft = getSupportFragmentManager().beginTransaction();
    ft.replace(R.id.home_list, rif);
}

But I got exception:

What can I do?

Thanks!

Solution 1

You cannot replace a fragment defined statically in the layout file. You can only replace fragments that you added dynamically via a FragmentTransaction.

Solution 2

Try to commit() at the end of the ft, you need to commit() your changes to let it know.

Solution 3

getFragmentManger()
  .beginTransaction
  .replace(R.id.frame,Yourfragment.newInstance(),null)
  .addtobackstack
  .commit();

People always say I am one-liner, so here is one-liner solution for you
