Android ProgressBar is one of the common user interfaces (UI) component. Progress bar is used to show progress of any task to the users like in downloading, uploading, loading etc. In this tutorial, I am going to show how to create a progress bar in android application to tell user that some task is running, how much task has already been finished and how much task is left or how much time is required to finish the task.
