How to Customize a Progress Bar In Android


Question

I am working on an app in which I want to show a ProgressBar, but I want to replace the default Android ProgressBar.

So how can I customize the ProgressBar?

Do I need some graphics and animation for that?

I read the following post but could not get it to work:

Customizing a ProgressBar requires defining the attribute or properties for the background and progress of your progress bar.

Create an XML file named customprogressbar.xml in your res->drawable folder:

custom_progressbar.xml

<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <!-- Define the background properties like color etc -->
    <item android:id="@android:id/background">
    <shape>
        <gradient
                android:startColor="#000001"
                android:centerColor="#0b131e"
                android:centerY="1.0"
                android:endColor="#0d1522"
                android:angle="270"
        />
    </shape>
   </item>

  <!-- Define the progress properties like start color, end color etc -->
  <item android:id="@android:id/progress">
    <clip>
        <shape>
            <gradient
                android:startColor="#007A00"
                android:centerColor="#007A00"
                android:centerY="1.0"
                android:endColor="#06101d"
                android:angle="270"
            />
        </shape>
    </clip>
    </item>
</layer-list> 

Now you need to set the progressDrawable property in customprogressbar.xml (drawable)

You can do this in the XML file or in the Activity (at run time).

Do the following in your XML:

<ProgressBar
    android:id="@+id/progressBar1"
    style="?android:attr/progressBarStyleHorizontal"
    android:progressDrawable="@drawable/custom_progressbar"         
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

At run time do the following

// Get the Drawable custom_progressbar                     
    Drawable draw=res.getDrawable(R.drawable.custom_progressbar);
// set the drawable as progress drawable
    progressBar.setProgressDrawable(draw);

Edit: corrected xml layout

In case of complex ProgressBar like this,

enter image description here

use ClipDrawable.

NOTE : I've not used ProgressBar here in this example. I've achieved this using ClipDrawable by clipping image with Animation.

A Drawable that clips another Drawable based on this Drawable's current level value. You can control how much the child Drawable gets clipped in width and height based on the level, as well as a gravity to control where it is placed in its overall container. Most often used to implement things like progress bars, by increasing the drawable's level with setLevel().

NOTE : The drawable is clipped completely and not visible when the level is 0 and fully revealed when the level is 10,000.

I've used this two images to make this CustomProgressBar.

MainActivity.java

public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {

private EditText etPercent;
private ClipDrawable mImageDrawable;

// a field in your class
private int mLevel = 0;
private int fromLevel = 0;
private int toLevel = 0;

public static final int MAX_LEVEL = 10000;
public static final int LEVEL_DIFF = 100;
public static final int DELAY = 30;

private Handler mUpHandler = new Handler();
private Runnable animateUpImage = new Runnable() {

    @Override
    public void run() {
        doTheUpAnimation(fromLevel, toLevel);
    }
};

private Handler mDownHandler = new Handler();
private Runnable animateDownImage = new Runnable() {

    @Override
    public void run() {
        doTheDownAnimation(fromLevel, toLevel);
    }
};

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

    etPercent = (EditText) findViewById(R.id.etPercent);

    ImageView img = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.imageView1);
    mImageDrawable = (ClipDrawable) img.getDrawable();
    mImageDrawable.setLevel(0);
}

private void doTheUpAnimation(int fromLevel, int toLevel) {
    mLevel += LEVEL_DIFF;
    mImageDrawable.setLevel(mLevel);
    if (mLevel <= toLevel) {
        mUpHandler.postDelayed(animateUpImage, DELAY);
    } else {
        mUpHandler.removeCallbacks(animateUpImage);
        MainActivity.this.fromLevel = toLevel;
    }
}

private void doTheDownAnimation(int fromLevel, int toLevel) {
    mLevel -= LEVEL_DIFF;
    mImageDrawable.setLevel(mLevel);
    if (mLevel >= toLevel) {
        mDownHandler.postDelayed(animateDownImage, DELAY);
    } else {
        mDownHandler.removeCallbacks(animateDownImage);
        MainActivity.this.fromLevel = toLevel;
    }
}

public void onClickOk(View v) {
    int temp_level = ((Integer.parseInt(etPercent.getText().toString())) * MAX_LEVEL) / 100;

    if (toLevel == temp_level || temp_level > MAX_LEVEL) {
        return;
    }
    toLevel = (temp_level <= MAX_LEVEL) ? temp_level : toLevel;
    if (toLevel > fromLevel) {
        // cancel previous process first
        mDownHandler.removeCallbacks(animateDownImage);
        MainActivity.this.fromLevel = toLevel;

        mUpHandler.post(animateUpImage);
    } else {
        // cancel previous process first
        mUpHandler.removeCallbacks(animateUpImage);
        MainActivity.this.fromLevel = toLevel;

        mDownHandler.post(animateDownImage);
    }
}
}

activity_main.xml

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

android:paddingLeft="16dp"
android:paddingRight="16dp"

<clip xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:clipOrientation="vertical"

    android:gravity="bottom" />

In case of complex HorizontalProgressBar just change cliporientation in clip_source.xml like this,

android:clipOrientation="horizontal"

You can download complete demo from here.

2015/05/15

in your xml

<ProgressBar
        android:id="@+id/progressBar1"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        style="@style/CustomProgressBar" 
        android:layout_margin="5dip" />

And in res/values/styles.xml:

<resources> 
        <style name="CustomProgressBar" parent="android:Widget.ProgressBar.Horizontal">
          <item name="android:indeterminateOnly">false</item>
          <item name="android:progressDrawable">@drawable/custom_progress_bar_horizontal</item>
          <item name="android:minHeight">10dip</item>
          <item name="android:maxHeight">20dip</item>
        </style>       
    <style name="AppTheme" parent="android:Theme.Light" />
</resources>

And custom_progress_bar_horizontal is a xml stored in drawable folder which defines your custom progress bar. For more detail see this blog.

I hope this will help you.

Customizing the color of progressbar namely in case of spinner type needs an xml file and initiating codes in their respective java files.

Create an xml file and name it as progressbar.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:gravity="center"
    tools:context=".Radio_Activity" >

    <LinearLayout
        android:id="@+id/progressbar"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content" >

        <ProgressBar
            android:id="@+id/spinner"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content" >
        </ProgressBar>
    </LinearLayout>

</LinearLayout>

Use the following code to get the spinner in various expected color.Here we use the hexcode to display spinner in blue color.

Progressbar spinner = (ProgressBar) progrees.findViewById(R.id.spinner);
spinner.getIndeterminateDrawable().setColorFilter(Color.parseColor("#80DAEB"),
                android.graphics.PorterDuff.Mode.MULTIPLY);

There are two types of progress bars called determinate progress bar (fixed duration) and indeterminate progress bar (unknown duration).

Drawables for both of types of progress bar can be customized by defining drawable as xml resource. You can find more information about progress bar styles and customization at http://www.zoftino.com/android-progressbar-and-custom-progressbar-examples.

Customizing fixed or horizontal progress bar :

Below xml is a drawable resource for horizontal progress bar customization.

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:id="@android:id/background"
        android:gravity="center_vertical|fill_horizontal">
        <shape android:shape="rectangle"
            android:tint="?attr/colorControlNormal">
            <corners android:radius="8dp"/>
            <size android:height="20dp" />
            <solid android:color="#90caf9" />
        </shape>
    </item>
    <item android:id="@android:id/progress"
        android:gravity="center_vertical|fill_horizontal">
        <scale android:scaleWidth="100%">
            <shape android:shape="rectangle"
                android:tint="?attr/colorControlActivated">
                <corners android:radius="8dp"/>
                <size android:height="20dp" />
                <solid android:color="#b9f6ca" />
            </shape>
        </scale>
    </item>
</layer-list>

Customizing indeterminate progress bar

Below xml is a drawable resource for circular progress bar customization.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
    <item android:id="@android:id/progress"
        android:top="16dp"
        android:bottom="16dp">
                <rotate
                    android:fromDegrees="45"
                    android:pivotX="50%"
                    android:pivotY="50%"
                    android:toDegrees="315">
                    <shape android:shape="rectangle">
                        <size
                            android:width="80dp"
                            android:height="80dp" />
                        <stroke
                            android:width="6dp"
                            android:color="#b71c1c" />
                    </shape>
                </rotate>           
    </item>
</layer-list>

Creating Custom ProgressBar like hotstar.

  1. Add Progress bar on layout file and set the indeterminateDrawable with drawable file.

activity_main.xml

<ProgressBar
    style="?android:attr/progressBarStyleLarge"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:layout_centerVertical="true"
    android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
    android:id="@+id/player_progressbar"
    android:indeterminateDrawable="@drawable/custom_progress_bar"
    />
  1. Create new xml file in res\drawable

custom_progress_bar.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <rotate  xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:duration="2000"
    android:fromDegrees="0"
    android:pivotX="50%"
    android:pivotY="50%"
    android:toDegrees="1080" >

    <shape
        android:innerRadius="35dp"
        android:shape="ring"
        android:thickness="3dp"
        android:useLevel="false" >
       <size
           android:height="80dp"
           android:width="80dp" />

       <gradient
            android:centerColor="#80b7b4b2"
            android:centerY="0.5"
            android:endColor="#f4eef0"
            android:startColor="#00938c87"
            android:type="sweep"
            android:useLevel="false" />
    </shape>

</rotate>
