ProgressBar Android

To display the progress of work being done, the android progress bar dialog box can be displayed. It is mainly used to display the status of activities like downloading a file, analyzing the status of work, etc. The progress dialog for the dummy file download operation is demonstrated in the below example. Here, to show the progress bar, we are using android.app.ProgressDialog class. The AlertDialog class in Android has a subclass named ProgressDialog.

The methods like setProgress(), setMessage(), setProgressStyle(), setMax(), show(), etc are facilitated by the ProgressDialog class to work on progress bars. The Progress Dialog has a progress range of 0 to 10000.

Example: To display a progress bar in android:

ProgressDialog progressBar = new ProgressDialog(this);  
progressBar.setCancelable(true);//you can cancel it by pressing back button  
progressBar.setMessage("Uploading ...");  
progressBar.setProgressStyle(ProgressDialog.STYLE_HORIZONTAL);  
progressBar.setProgress(0);//initially progress is 0  
progressBar.setMax(100);//sets the maximum value 100  
progressBar.show();//displays the progress bar

Android Progress Bar Example by ProgressDialog:

In this example, we will create a progress bar using the ProgressDialog class.

activity_main.xml:
In the activity_main.xml file, we will drag one button from the pallet.

Activity class:(File: MainActivity.java)

In the MainActivity.java file, we will write the code to display the progress bar dialog box.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"

   <Button

       android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
       android:layout_marginTop="116dp"
       android:text="Upload" />
 
</RelativeLayout>
 
Activity class:
In the MainActivity.java file, we will write the code to display the progress bar dialog box.
