The XML code is given below.  

  1. <RelativeLayout  
  2.     xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"  
  3.     xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"  
  4.     android:layout_width="match_parent"  
  5.     android:layout_height="match_parent"  
  6.     tools:context=".MainActivity" >  
  7.   
  8.     <Button  
  9.         android:id="@+id/button1"  
  10.         android:layout_width="wrap_content"  
  11.         android:layout_height="wrap_content"  
  12.         android:layout_alignParentTop="true"  
  13.         android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"  
  14.         android:layout_marginTop="116dp"  
  15.         android:text="download file" />  
  16.   
  17. </RelativeLayout>  

Step 7

Go to Main Activity.java. This Java program is the backend language for Android.

  17.     @Override  
  18.     protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {  
  19.         super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);  
  20.         setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);  
  21.         addListenerOnButtonClick();  
  22.     }  
  23.     public void addListenerOnButtonClick() {  
  24.         btnStartProgress = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button1);  
  25.         btnStartProgress.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener(){

  33.                 progressBar.setProgressStyle(ProgressDialog.STYLE_HORIZONTAL);  
  34.                 progressBar.setProgress(0);  
  35.                 progressBar.setMax(100);  
  36.                 progressBar.show();  
  37.                   
  38.                 progressBarStatus = 0;  
  39.                 fileSize = 0;  
  40.   
  41.                 new Thread(new Runnable() {  
  42.                     public void run() {  
  43.                         while (progressBarStatus < 100) {  
  44.                            
  45.                             progressBarStatus = doOperation();  
  46.                             try {Thread.sleep(1000);} catch (InterruptedException e) {e.printStackTrace();}  
  47.                             progressBarHandler.post(new Runnable() {  
  48.                                 public void run() {  
  49.                                     progressBar.setProgress(progressBarStatus);  
  50.                                 }  
  51.                             });  
  52.                         }  
  53.                           
  54.                         if (progressBarStatus >= 100) {  
  55.                             try {Thread.sleep(1000);} catch (InterruptedException e) {e.printStackTrace();}  
  56.                             progressBar.dismiss();  
  57.                         }  
  58.                     }  
  59.                 }).start();  
  60.             }   
  61.         });  
  62.     }  
  63.       
  64.     public int doOperation() {  
  65.           
  66.         while (fileSize <= 10000) {  
  67.             fileSize++;  
  68.             if (fileSize == 1000) {  
  69.                 return 10;  
  70.             } else if (fileSize == 2000) {  
  71.                 return 20;  
  72.             } else if (fileSize == 3000) {  
  73.                 return 30;  
  74.             } else if (fileSize == 4000) {  
  75.                 return 40;  
  76.             } else{  
  77.                 return 100;  
  78.             }  
  79.         }  
  80.         return 100;

  82.   
  83.     @Override  
  84.     public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {  
  85.          
  86.         getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.main, menu);  
  87.         return true;
