Java Android Program to Demonstrate Progress Dialog in Android

«
»
Here is source code of the Program to Demonstrate Progress Dialog with Spinning Wheel in Android. The program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system using Eclipse Ide. The program output is also shown below.

The following program demonstrates Progress Dialog which is simply an extension to Android’s Alert Dialog Box.A Progress Dialog Box typically displays a progress bar beneath a message text box. This can be used to keep users informed of the ongoing progress of a time-consuming operation.

Here i have used a Handler class in Android which registers to a thread and provides a simple channel to send data and receive data to the associated thread via its sendMessage() and obtainMessage() . Here i have set the intial progress value to 0 and max value to 100 , u can set them as u like and incremented the progress by 20 by sending message to my Handler handle and check if the current progress of my progress dialog is equal to the max set when this happens we dismiss the dialog.
