screen layout without all the tabs, android

Here is an small example of  the attached file called  AndroidTabLayoutActvity is the tab related activity.

In the photos-layout i have a text and a button, my idea is when i click on the button with the text value in the  PhotoActivity class it should go to the SongsActivity class with the value getting displayed as Textview with the tab. so i have used intent API to send the value from the PhotoActivity class to the SongsActivity class, it is getting displayed but not with the tabs like photo, songs and video tabs, but with the SongsActvity screen layout only.
AndroidTabLayoutActivity.java
PhotosActivity.java
SongsActivity.java
main.xml
photos-layout.xml
songs-layout.xml

Hi,

Here is the  code inside the  "PhotoActivity" , i tried it, it  shows the  value with tab  for some flash of second with "songActivity" , again it goes back single screen such as songActivity layout screen.

public class ButtonClickHandler implements View.OnClickListener {
            public void onClick(View view) {
                  if (nameEditCtrl != null && nameEditCtrl.getText().length() != 0) {
                        name = nameEditCtrl.getText().toString();
                  } else {
                        name = "Guest";
                  }

      Intent intObj = new Intent(PhotosActivity.this,
                        SongsActivity.class);
            intObj.putExtra("USERNAME", name);
                  startActivity(intObj);
                  AndroidTabLayoutActivity parent = (AndroidTabLayoutActivity) getParent();
                  TabHost tabhost = parent.getTabHost();
                  tabhost.setCurrentTab(1);
            }
      }

Hi,

Instead of firing the intent to launch the "SongsActivity" you can maintain a common data structure to store the selected data or text from the "PhotoActivity ". While clicking on the button in the "PhotoActivity " you can set the current tab as the "SongsActivity" tab by using the following code ..

TabActivity parent = (TabActivity) getParent();
TabHost tabhost = parent.getTabHost();
tabhost.setCurrentTab(1);  // If the song tab is added as second tab


While showing the "SongsActivity" you should get the data from the same data structure.

it works  in  PhotoActivity class as
 
           getParent().getIntent().putExtra("key", name);
            TabActivity parent = (TabActivity) getParent();
            TabHost tabhost = parent.getTabHost();
            tabhost.setCurrentTab(1);

it works with songActvity class if it has

 String valueString=getParent().getIntent().getStringExtra("key");
    greetMsg1.setText("Welcome " + valueString);
