android PopupWindow from a fragment

I have an app that uses fragments, its working ok,
but I have now to implement some pop ups when a button gets tapped,

I am following this tutorial "Example of using PopupWindow"

But I get this errors:

Multiple markers at this line
- LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE cannot be resolved to a variable
- The method getBaseContext() is undefined for the type new

here my .java

public class Tab2HeadH1 extends Fragment implements OnClickListener{

public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
Bundle savedInstanceState) {

View view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.tab_2_head_buttons, container,false);


Button buttonNose = (Button) view.findViewById(;

buttonNose.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(final View v) {
//aqui tus tareas,,

LayoutInflater layoutInflater = (LayoutInflater)getBaseContext().getSystemService(LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE); //ERRORS HERE!!

View popupView = layoutInflater.inflate(R.layout.popup, null);
final PopupWindow popupWindow = new PopupWindow(



Button buttonEye = (Button) view.findViewById(;

buttonEye.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(final View v) {
// onLoginClicked(v);
Toast.makeText(getActivity(), "ss9 eye",


return view;

public void onViewCreated(View view, Bundle savedInstanceState) {

super.onViewCreated(view, savedInstanceState);

((TabActivity)getActivity()).setHeader("TAPING APPLICATION");

public void onClick(View v) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
switch (v.getId()) {



SO, how can I fix this problem??, to show my pop up from tapped button in my fragment??

Answer Source


LayoutInflater layoutInflater = (LayoutInflater)**getActivity()**.getBaseContext().getSystemService(LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);

Atleast it won't show error onBaseContext() as now it take from the associated activity


Try this,

LayoutInflater layoutInflater = (LayoutInflater)getActivity().getBaseContext().getSystemService(Context.LAYOUT_INFLATER_SERVICE);
