View Pager Issue in Android

I m using a viewpager which is rendering fragments one after the other. The problem which I m facing is that once I touch the current fragment visible,it takes the touch event of the next fragment which is yet to be loaded. How should I make sure the current/visible fragment is touched & the touch event is handled accordingly.

This is my adapter which renders the fragments.

private class ScreenSlidePagerAdapter extends FragmentStatePagerAdapter {
public ScreenSlidePagerAdapter(FragmentManager fm) {

public Fragment getItem(int position) {

Fragment fragment = new ScreenSlidePageFragment();
Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
bundle.putString("CAPTION", slideShowItems.get(position).name);
return fragment;

public int getCount() {
return slideShowItems.size();

This is the Fragment Class which handles the touch event as well.

public class ScreenSlidePageFragment extends Fragment {

String imageUrl,text;
UWSharedPreference preference;
public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
Bundle savedInstanceState) {
ViewGroup rootView = (ViewGroup) inflater.inflate(
R.layout.fragment_slide_show, container, false);


preference = new UWSharedPreference(getActivity());

imageUrl = getArguments().getString("IMAGE_URL");
text = getArguments().getString("CAPTION");

TouchImageView iv_image = (TouchImageView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.jj_image);
TextView tv_caption = (TextView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.caption_text);

iv_image.setImageUrl(imageUrl, AppController.getInstance().getImageLoader());
if (text != null && text.equals("custom")){
else {

iv_image.setOnTouchListener(new OnTouchListener());

return rootView;

class OnTouchListener implements View.OnTouchListener {
public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
Log.d("zambob","On Touch Called for text" + text +" diner txn id" + preference.getDinerTxnID());

if (text.equals("custom") && preference.getDinerTxnID()!=0 ){
startActivity(new Intent(getActivity(), FBCheckInActivity.class));
else {

return true;


Now the problem is that in view pager, 3 fragments are loaded initially. The one visible, one behind it & the one which will come next. When i touch the fragment which is required to start the intent process doesn't work. But when i touch the fragment before the above one, then the required process is going on .

How should i make sure that when i touch the visible fragment, then the required process starts?

Finally I found the solution myself & a little help from Google as well :P.

Actually i was using Depth Page Transformer to show the swipe movements between the fragments. So i just tweaked the page transformer by using this-:

mPager.setPageTransformer(true, new ViewPager.PageTransformer() {
        public void transformPage(View page, float position) {
            float translationX;
            float scale;
            float alpha;

            if (position >= 1 || position <= -1) {
                // Fix for https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=58918
                translationX = 0;
                scale = 1;
                alpha = 1;
            } else if (position >= 0) {
                translationX = -page.getWidth() * position;
                scale = -0.2f * position + 1;
                alpha = Math.max(1 - position, 0);
            } else {
                translationX = 0.5f * page.getWidth() * position;
                scale = 1.0f;
                alpha = Math.max(0.1f * position + 1, 0);


This simply makes sure the visible fragment is getting touched and not the one behind the visible fragment by setting the scale, alpha & translation of the View Pager. Also make the root layout of View Pager as clickable.

XML for the activity rendering the View Pager.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:urbanwand="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto" xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"

        android:layout_height="match_parent" />


Hope this answer helps !
