A polished and flexible ProgressView, fully customizable with animations.

Including in your project

Download Jitpack


Add below codes to your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file).

allprojects {

  repositories {


And add a dependency code to your module s build.gradle file.

dependencies {

  implementation "com.github.skydoves:progressview:1.0.1" 


Add following XML namespace inside your XML layout file.



Here is a basic example of implementing ProgressView.

app:progressView_colorBackground="@color/white" // the color of the container.
app:progressView_colorProgress="@color/skyBlue" // the color of the progress bar.
app:progressView_progress="40" // progress value.
app:progressView_max="100" // max progress value.
app:progressView_autoAnimate="true" // starts filling animation automatically when finishing inflate.
app:progressView_radius="12dp" // the corner radius of the progressView and progress bar.
app:progressView_padding="1dp" // the padding of the progress bar.
app:progressView_labelColorInner="@color/white" // the text color when the label placed on the progress bar.
app:progressView_labelColorOuter="@color/black" // the text color when the label placed out of the progress bar.
app:progressView_labelSize="13sp" // the label text size.
app:progressView_labelSpace="10dp" // the space size of the between label and progress bar. 
app:progressView_labelText="achieve 65%" // the text of the label.
app:progressView_labelTypeface="bold" // the typeface of the label.  />


We can give a gradient effect to the progress bar using the below attributes.

app:progressView_colorGradientStart="@color/md_yellow_100" // starting color of the gradient. app:progressView_colorGradientEnd="@color/md_yellow_200" // ending color of the gradient.

Filling Animation

We can implement the filling animation using below attributes or method.

app:progressView_autoAnimate="true" // starts filling animation automatically when progress is changed.

or we can animate manually using below method.


Hilighting Effect

We can give a highlighting effect on the progress bar when clicked.

app:progressView_highlighting="true" // gives the highlighting effect or not. app:progressView_highlightAlpha="0.8" // the alpha of the highlight. app:progressView_highlightColor="@color/skyBlue" // the color of the highlight. app:progressView_highlightWidth="1.5dp" // the thickness of the highlight. app:progressView_padding="1.5dp" // the padding of the progress bar.

OnProgressChangeListener, OnProgressClickListener

We can listen to the progress value is changed or the progressbar is clicked.

progressView.setOnProgressChangeListener(new OnProgressChangeListener() {

public void onChange(float progress) {

  progressView.setLabelText(progress + "% archived");

  progressView.setOnProgressClickListener(new OnProgressClickListener() {

public void onClickProgress(boolean highlighting) {

  // do something


We can simplify it using kotlin.

progressView.setOnProgressChangeListener {
 progressView.labelText = "achieve ${
 progressView.setOnProgressClickListener {
 Toast.makeText(baseContext, "clicked", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show() 

Vertical Orientation

We can implement the ProgressView vertically using the below option.
We should set the width and height value like vertical shape.




TextFrom is an attribute class that has some attributes about TextView for customizing ProgressView s label.

TextForm textForm = TextForm.Builder(context)
  .setText("This is a TextForm")

This is how to create TextForm using kotlin dsl.

val form = textForm(context) {

text = "This is a TextForm"
textColor = ContextCompat.getColor(baseContext, R.color.white_87)
textSize = 14f
textTypeface = Typeface.BOLD 

Create using Builder

We can create the ProgressView using ProgressView.Builder.

ProgressView progressView = new ProgressView.Builder(context)
  .setSize(300, 35)
  .setLabelColorInner(ContextCompat.getColor(context, R.color.white))
  .setLabelText("archive 70%")

This is how to create an instance of the ProgressView using kotlin dsl.

val myProgressView = progressView(context) {

  setSize(300, 35)
  setLabelColorInner(ContextCompat.getColor(context, R.color.white))
  setLabelText("archive 70%")
