What is HoloCircularProgressBar
HoloCircularProgressBar is a Custom View implementation for Android you might know from the Android Clock App from Android 4.1
You can see the ProgressBar working in the sample application. Just check out the library and create a new "Android Project form Existing Code"
Use it in your own Code
Add the View in your Layout
<com.pascalwelsch.holocircularprogressbar.HoloCircularProgressBar android:id="@+id/holoCircularProgressBar" android:layout_width="300dp" android:layout_height="300dp"/>
Don't forget to add a default style to your AppTheme
<style name="AppTheme" parent="android:Theme.Holo"> <item name="circularProgressBarStyle">@style/CircularProgressBar</item> </style>
I added two simple styles
@style/CircularProgressBarLight to give you a quick start. You can see both styles in action in the sample Project
After you wrote your own style you have to rebuild your project in Android Studio (or restart your Eclipse. The ADT Plugin really has some troubles working with Android Libraries and Styles).
Of cause can you change the color at runtime. Here are some examples from the sample app:
There might be some error from your IDE. Most of them are simply solved after building the project.
Got this error?
The following classes could not be instantiated: - de.passsy.holocircularprogressbar.HoloCircularProgressBar (Open Class, Show Error Log) See the Error Log (Window > Show View) for more details. Tip: Use View.isInEditMode() in your custom views to skip code when shown in Eclipse
If your Layout Editor can't draw the view, you have to restart Eclipse. There is a bug in the ADT Plugin
Got the next error?
Missing styles. Is the correct theme chosen for this layout? Use the Theme combo box above the layout to choose a different layout, or fix the theme style references. Failed to find style 'circularProgressBarStyle' in current theme
You have to add a style for this View. see the Style section
You found bugs? Report them or feel free to fix them by yourself and make a pull request. No one wants a buggy library
