Putting a MapActivity on a SlidingDrawer with TabHost

Postby glmason » Tue Jan 26, 2010 6:18 pm

Is it possible to put a MapActivity on a SlidingDrawer, when the app's main.xml is a tabbed layout?
Since the main Layout is a TabHost it has to extend TabActivity, the slidingDrawer widget is part of the main layout, but to start the MapView activity it has to extend MapActivity... is there a way around this?

Thanks
Larry

Did you ever figure this out? I'm trying to do pretty much the same thing except I'm using a ViewFlipper instead. I'd like to have the MapView be my third view. Haven't had any luck thus far though
