How to display ProgressBar in the form of a Notification?


I'm Developing an android application to download .mp3 from Server.
When clicked on the download button ProgressBar will appear,displaying the
percentage on screen.


This works fine. Now i want to make that download work in background by Showing Notification with a ProgressBar

can anyone help me to find a code to Use the Service and Building Notification?Thank You

My MainActivity.java code:

public class MainActivity extends Activity {


final MediaPlayer mp=new MediaPlayer();
//---------------------
Clone c=new Clone();

//------------------
// button to show progress dialog
Button btnShowProgress;

// Progress Dialog
private ProgressDialog pDialog;
ImageView my_image;
// Progress dialog type (0 - for Horizontal progress bar)
public static final int progress_bar_type = 0;

// File url to download
private static String file_url = "http://www.eecindia.co.in/up/01%20-%20Pretham%20-%20Oruthikku%20Pinnil%20[Maango.me].mp3";

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

// show progress bar button
btnShowProgress = (Button) findViewById(R.id.btnProgressBar);
// Image view to show image after downloading
my_image = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.my_image);
/**
* Show Progress bar click event
* */
btnShowProgress.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {

@Override
public void onClick(View v) {

//----------------------------------------------
AlertDialog.Builder builder = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);
builder.setTitle("Select The Extension To Download...");
builder.setItems(new CharSequence[]
{".mp3", ".mp4", ".txt", ".srt"},
new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
// The 'which' argument contains the index position
// of the selected item
switch (which) {
case 0:
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
