Display circular ProgressBar in Android

Karan Balkar
Hello friends! In the past we have discussed about creating and displaying a basic ProgressBar in Android.

In order to create a circular progress bar we need to add a new XML file in the drawable folder.

Implement Lightbox using jQuery plugin

Karan Balkar

Display ProgressBar in Android

Karan Balkar
Hey everyone! A ProgressBar is basically a visual indicator of progress in some operation. Implementing a ProgressBar helps in the understanding of processes running on threads separate from the main User Interface (UI) and the communication between threads. As mentioned on the Android developer's page, a progress bar can also be made indeterminate. In indeterminate mode, the progress bar shows a cyclic animation without an indication of progress. This mode is used by applications when the length of the task is unknown.
