How to Create Progress Dialog Using ProgressBar and AlertDialog in Android?
In Android, a Progress bar is a UI element used to display the progress of any running task or an operation. An Alert Dialog is a type of alert message displayed over the screen that lets users choose between options to respond to the message of the alert. Both of these elements are different from each other in nature and in serving a purpose. However, both of these can be brought together to create a Progress Dialog that would display the progress inside an Alert Dialog.
So in this article, we will show you how you could implement a Progress bar inside an Alert Dialog to create a Progress Dialog in Android. Follow the below steps once the IDE is ready.
