A new chat application is under development which consists of two sections one is server application which is executed in any standalone PC that acts as server and the other one is client application which is executed in phone.

Showing ProgressDialog in an Activity

Posted on Updated on

In some cases we need to wait until some long process is carried out in an activity. In this case its a good practice to notify user that the operation is in progress and also for preventing the UI from freezing. For this purpose android API has got classes such as ProgressDialog and ProgressBar. Here I am going to explain one of the method that is how to use ProgressDialog in an Activity.

The syntax for ProgressDialog is 

    ProgressDialog.show(Context context, CharSequence title, CharSequence message);


Now we need to create thread for the complex operation. The entire code is shown below


private ProgressDialog progressDialog;
progressDialog=ProgressDialog.show(Classname.this, "Please Wait", "Executing complex operation....");
new Thread()
{
public void run()
{
try
{
sleep(1000);
//add ur complex function here
}
catch(Exception e)
{
}
progressDialog.dismiss();
}
}.start();
