ProgressBar is used when we are fetching some data from another source and it takes time, so for user’s satisfaction, we generally display them the progress of the task. In this article, we are going to learn how to implement the circular progress bar in an android application using Java. So, this article will give you a complete idea of implementing a circular progress bar in an application built in Android Studio. So, without wasting further time let’s go to the article and read how we can achieve this task.
What we are going to develop in this article?
We will be building a simple application in which we will be implementing a circular progress bar with a text display. A sample video is given below to get an idea about what we are going to do in this article. Note that we are going to implement this project using the Java language.
Step by Step Implementation
Step 1: Create a New Project
To create a new project in Android Studio please refer to How to Create/Start a New Project in Android Studio. Note that select Java as the programming language.
Step 2: Create circular_progress_bar.xml
Navigate to the app > res > drawable > right-click and select new > drawable resource file and name the new XML file as circular_progress_bar.xml and refer to the following code. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.
Step 3: Create circular_shape.xml
Similarly, create a new drawable resource file and name the file as circular_shape.xml and refer to the following code.
Step 4: Working with the activity_main.xml file
Now it’s time to design the layout of the application. So for that, navigate to the app > res > layout > activity_main.xml and refer to the code written below.
Step 5: Working with the MainActivity.java file
Go to the app > java > package name > MainActivity.java file and refer to the following code. Below is the code for the MainActivity.java file. Comments are added inside the code to understand the code in more detail.
That’s all, now the application is ready to install on the device. Here is what the output of the application looks like.
The project is available on GitHub, you can access it by following the link below: Circular Progress Bar in Android Application
