abstract class FragmentManager : FragmentResultOwner

Static library support version of the framework's Used to write apps that run on platforms prior to Android 3.0. When running on Android 3.0 or above, this implementation is still used; it does not try to switch to the framework's implementation. See the framework FragmentManager documentation for a class overview.

Your activity must derive from FragmentActivity to use this. From such an activity, you can acquire the FragmentManager by calling FragmentActivity#getSupportFragmentManager.


Nested classes

Representation of an entry on the fragment back stack, as created with FragmentTransaction.addToBackStack().


Callback interface for listening to fragment state changes that happen within a given FragmentManager.


Interface to watch for changes to the back stack.

static Int

Flag for popBackStack(String, int) and popBackStack(int, int): If set, and the name or ID of a back stack entry has been supplied, then all matching entries will be consumed until one that doesn't match is found or the bottom of the stack is reached.
