Does somebody know of a tutorial or an example of how to implement the standard Android search interface with Fragments? In other words, is it possible to put a standard search with a SearchManager in a Fragment?

Here is the example to search something using fragments. Hope it helps and this is what you are looking for:

public class LoaderCursor extends Activity {


    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


        FragmentManager fm = getFragmentManager();

        // Create the list fragment and add it as our sole content.

        if (fm.findFragmentById( == null) {

            CursorLoaderListFragment list = new CursorLoaderListFragment();

            fm.beginTransaction().add(, list).commit();



    public static class CursorLoaderListFragment extends ListFragment

            implements OnQueryTextListener, LoaderManager.LoaderCallbacks<Cursor> {

        // This is the Adapter being used to display the list's data.

        SimpleCursorAdapter mAdapter;

        // If non-null, this is the current filter the user has provided.

        String mCurFilter;

        @Override public void onActivityCreated(Bundle savedInstanceState) {


            // Give some text to display if there is no data.  In a real

            // application this would come from a resource.

            setEmptyText("No phone numbers");

            // We have a menu item to show in action bar.


            // Create an empty adapter we will use to display the loaded data.

            mAdapter = new SimpleCursorAdapter(getActivity(),

                    android.R.layout.simple_list_item_2, null,

                    new String[] { Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME, Contacts.CONTACT_STATUS },

                    new int[] {, }, 0);


            // Start out with a progress indicator.


            // Prepare the loader.  Either re-connect with an existing one,

            // or start a new one.

            getLoaderManager().initLoader(0, null, this);


        @Override public void onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu, MenuInflater inflater) {

            // Place an action bar item for searching.

            MenuItem item = menu.add("Search");



            SearchView sv = new SearchView(getActivity());




        public boolean onQueryTextChange(String newText) {

            // Called when the action bar search text has changed.  Update

            // the search filter, and restart the loader to do a new query

            // with this filter.

            mCurFilter = !TextUtils.isEmpty(newText) ? newText : null;

            getLoaderManager().restartLoader(0, null, this);

            return true;


        @Override public boolean onQueryTextSubmit(String query) {

            // Don't care about this.

            return true;


        @Override public void onListItemClick(ListView l, View v, int position, long id) {

            // Insert desired behavior here.

            Log.i("FragmentComplexList", "Item clicked: " + id);


        // These are the Contacts rows that we will retrieve.

        static final String[] CONTACTS_SUMMARY_PROJECTION = new String[] {








        public Loader<Cursor> onCreateLoader(int id, Bundle args) {

            // This is called when a new Loader needs to be created.  This

            // sample only has one Loader, so we don't care about the ID.

            // First, pick the base URI to use depending on whether we are

            // currently filtering.

            Uri baseUri;

            if (mCurFilter != null) {

                baseUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(Contacts.CONTENT_FILTER_URI,


            } else {

                baseUri = Contacts.CONTENT_URI;


            // Now create and return a CursorLoader that will take care of

            // creating a Cursor for the data being displayed.

            String select = "((" + Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME + " NOTNULL) AND ("

                    + Contacts.HAS_PHONE_NUMBER + "=1) AND ("

                    + Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME + " != '' ))";

            return new CursorLoader(getActivity(), baseUri,

                    CONTACTS_SUMMARY_PROJECTION, select, null,

                    Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME + " COLLATE LOCALIZED ASC");


        public void onLoadFinished(Loader<Cursor> loader, Cursor data) {

            // Swap the new cursor in.  (The framework will take care of closing the

            // old cursor once we return.)


            // The list should now be shown.

            if (isResumed()) {


            } else {




        public void onLoaderReset(Loader<Cursor> loader) {

            // This is called when the last Cursor provided to onLoadFinished()

            // above is about to be closed.  We need to make sure we are no

            // longer using it.
