You have the Tabs and the Tab Content in the same FrameLayout, so when you put the content in, the tabs get covered. The TabWidget should go outside the FrameLayout and inside the LinearLayout, as it is not part of the tabcontent.

I tried this but now the tab is not visible.

Try putting bottom margin for the layout that appears on top of the tab widgets, and the margin height should be >= height of tab.

The margin trick works, but is a bit fragile, since you are relying on the height of the other component. It isn't 'the right way' to do it. The problem is that your frame layout uses a 'fill_parent' height. If the frame fills the parent, where is the room for the tabs? Instead, you should make the tabs 'wrap_content' like they are, and not specify a height for the frame layout: instead, give them a height of 0dp, and a weight of 1 (which means it will get 1 'unit' of leftover layout space: since it is the only component needing leftover space it gets it all):
