Android tablyout issue

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'am having a bit of a problem with the android TabLayout, I'v been trying to make a screen that holds 4 tabs, and a fragment beneath them, when a user press's each tab the fragment dynamically switches to another activity and the tabs stay static, my problem is that i tried to implement it with tablyout and it's deprecated in since android 4.0 , So i tried it with the ActionBar Tabs but then I have the action bar that i don't want nor need. I have two questions: 1) Is it possible to use ActionBar but to hide the action bar and show only the tabs? 2) Is there a way to use TabLayout on Andro (HowTos)
