You're adding a new fragment instead of using the one you made and set the arguments to:

adapter.addFragment(new FragmentOne(), "ONE");

Change this to:

adapter.addFragment(fragobj, "ONE");

Also it is recommended to use Abstract Factory design pattern with newInstance method when instantiating a fragment, something like:

public static FragmentOne newInstance(Bundle b) {
    FragmentOne fragment = new FragmentOne();

    return fragment;

And then create your fragment like:

FragmentOne fragobj = FragmentOne.newInstance(bundle);

And in this line you're setting arguments and creating it as well.
