Changing the font on ActionBar tabs

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I'm trying to figure out how to change the font on actionbar tabs to some custom font, and for the life of me I can't figure it out. IT doesn't seem like there is any way to access the underlying TextView of a Tab object. The other solution of course, is to define my own custom ActionBar tab layout, and set it as a custom view on the ActionBar.Tab object, but this seems quite tricky to get working also. If I were to use the following XML layout file as my custom tab layout: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/androi (HowTos)
