How to replace the activity's fragment from the fragment itself?

My application has a Fragment inside its Activity. I would like to programmatically replace the fragment by another one from the current fragment itself.

For example, if I click on a button inside the fragment, the fragment should be replaced with another one, but the activity should remain the same.

Is it possible? If so, how to do it?

Answer Source

It's actually easy to call the activity to replace the fragment.

You need to cast getActivity():

((MyActivity) getActivity())

Then you can call methods from MyActivity, for example:

((MyActivity) getActivity()).replaceFragments(Object... params);

Of course, this assumes you have a replaceFragments() method in your activity that handles the fragment replace process.

Edit: @ismailarilik added the possible code of replaceFragments in this code with the first comment below which was written by @silva96:

The code of replaceFragments could be:

public void replaceFragments(Class fragmentClass) {
    Fragment fragment = null;
    try {
        fragment = (Fragment) fragmentClass.newInstance();
    } catch (Exception e) {
    // Insert the fragment by replacing any existing fragment
    FragmentManager fragmentManager = getSupportFragmentManager();
    fragmentManager.beginTransaction().replace(, fragment)
