How to setup EventBus into fragment

I am experimenting EventBus libaray. I just registered it into Fragment and i used @Subcride annotation into that fragment with public methods but when i run the app i get expection which tells that i don't have used @Subcribe annotation with public methods in super class. Why do i need to declare it in super class? How to fix this problem
This is my first time with EventBus

Here is code


public class SignUpFragment extends BaseFragment {
public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// Inflate the layout for this fragment
View layout = inflater.inflate(R.layout.fragment_sign_up, container, false);
ButterKnife.bind(this, layout);
return layout;

// TODO: Rename method, update argument and hook method into UI event
public void onButtonPressed(String uri) {
if (mListener != null) {

public void onAttach(Context context) {
EventBus.getDefault().register(getActivity()); // Here comes the exception
if (context instanceof OnSignUpFragmentInteractionListener) {
mListener = (OnSignUpFragmentInteractionListener) context;
} else {
throw new RuntimeException(context.toString()
+ " must implement OnSignUpFragmentInteractionListener");

public void onDetach() {
mListener = null;
@Subscribe(threadMode = ThreadMode.MAIN)
public void onEvent(JSONObject response) {

Log.d(TAG, response.toString());


@Subscribe(threadMode = ThreadMode.MAIN)
public void onEvent(VolleyError error) {
Log.d(TAG, error.toString());

This is the exception i get

Don't pass getActivity() to EventBus register() method, pass the Fragment instead, which in this case should be this
