actionbar up navigation with fragments

I have a tabbed Actionbar/viewpager layout with three tabs say A, B, and C. In tab C tab(fragment),I am adding another fragment say fragment D. with

DFragment f= new DFragment();
ft.add(android.R.id.content, f, "");
ft.remove(CFragment.this);
ft.addToBackStack(null);
ft.commit();


I modify actionbar in DFragment's onResume to add up button:

ActionBar ab = getActivity().getActionBar();
ab.setNavigationMode(ActionBar.NAVIGATION_MODE_STANDARD);
ab.setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled(true);
ab.setDisplayShowHomeEnabled(true);


Now in DFragment, when I press hardware(phone) Back button, I return to the original Tabbed(ABC) layout with CFragment selected. How can I achieve this functionality with actionbar up button?

Answer

Implement OnBackStackChangedListener and add this code to your Fragment Activity.

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    //Listen for changes in the back stack
    getSupportFragmentManager().addOnBackStackChangedListener(this);
    //Handle when activity is recreated like on orientation Change
    shouldDisplayHomeUp();
}

@Override
public void onBackStackChanged() {
    shouldDisplayHomeUp();
}

public void shouldDisplayHomeUp(){
   //Enable Up button only  if there are entries in the back stack
   boolean canback = getSupportFragmentManager().getBackStackEntryCount()>0;
   getSupportActionBar().setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled(canback);
}

@Override
public boolean onSupportNavigateUp() {
    //This method is called when the up button is pressed. Just the pop back stack.
    getSupportFragmentManager().popBackStack();
    return true;
}
