In an android application I'm loading data from a db into a table view inside a fragment. But when I reload the fragment it displays the previous data. Can I repopulate the fragment with current data instead of previous data?
I think you want to refresh the fragment contents upon db update
If so, detach the fragment and reattach it
// Reload current fragment Fragment frg = null; frg = getSupportFragmentManager().findFragmentByTag("Your_Fragment_TAG"); final FragmentTransaction ft = getSupportFragmentManager().beginTransaction(); ft.detach(frg); ft.attach(frg); ft.commit();
Your_Fragment_TAG is the name you gave your fragment when you created it
This code is for support library.
If you're not supporting older devices, just use getFragmentManager instead of getSupportFragmentManager
This method requires the Fragment to have a tag.
In case you don't have it, then @Hammer's method is what you need.
