I am trying to get the Dialog I have created with an extended DialogFragment using DialogFragment.getDialog() but it returns null.
Basically I want to alter the text in the layout from the FragmentActivity which creates and shows the DialogFragment.
getDialog() too early in the DialogFragmen'ts life cycle.
getDialog() simply returns the private variable
mDialog from the DialogFragment.
When a DialogFragment is instantiated
mDialog is null, and then it gets set when
onCreateDialog is fired inside
getLayoutInflater(Bundle savedInstanceState), so you have to call
For example, the order of some common methods called is
onStart. So, you can call
getDialog and have it return something in
onStart, but not in
onStart is called
called when the Fragment is visible to the user, adjusting the layout of the fragment at that point looks fine.... for example setting the width and height using
getDialog().getWindow().setLayout(..., ...); doesn't make the fragment appear to change size, but just appears to have the newly set size.
