To show different content in different tabs, you have to create XML layout for different tabs. Following are the three XML activity layouts for three action bar tabs, actionbar_tab_1.xml for tab 1, actionbar_tab_2.xml for tab 2 and actionbar_tab_3.xml for tab 3.

And also, your main XML activity layout looks like this.
