FIXED: Updated answer is below.
In my android app I got few widgets and I want them to look like these progress bars.
Now I know that I can not use any external libs to do this as widgets dont support most of the custom views. I have seen most developers use bitmap to draw things like this. I can manage to draw a full circle. But how can I draw this arc shape progress bar using bitmap or is there any other way?
Appreciate your help. Thanks!
Yes, you need a bitmap but it's easy enough to draw an arc on a bitmap the same way you would draw an arc on a custom view:
Bitmap bitmap = Bitmap.createBitmap(width, height, Config.ARGB_8888); Canvas canvas = new Canvas(bitmap); canvas.drawArc(arcRect, startAngle, sweepAngle, false, paint); RemoteViews views = new RemoteViews(updateService.getPackageName(), R.layout.widget); views.setImageViewBitmap(R.id.image_view, bitmap);
