How to show a progress bar during the creation of a file?

How can I show a progress bar when I click a button during the creation of a PDF file and hide it when I finished creating the file?

Button mButton = (Button) rootView.findViewById(R.id.newbutton);
mButton.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) {

//sendemail();
// pdfProgress.setVisibility(View.GONE);

/*MyAsyncTask myTask = new MyAsyncTask();

// This runs in MAIN thread, after the job's done.
// You always have to update gui from main thread
pdfProgress.setVisibility(View.GONE);
viewPDF();
}

Answer

This code will do what you want using AsyncTask which is reccomended way of doing this!

private class MakePDF extends AsyncTask<Void, Void, Void> {

       private ProgressDialog processingDialog;
            Context cnt = null;

           MakePDF(Context cnt)
                 {
              this.cnt = cnt;
                  }

                @Override
                protected void onPreExecute() {
                    super.onPreExecute();

                    processingDialog = ProgressDialog.show( this.cnt, "Creating PDF", "Please wait ...", true, false);    

                }

                @Override
                protected Void doInBackground(Void... arg0) {
                          createPDF();                 
                         return null;
                }

                @Override
                protected void onPostExecute(Void aVoid) {
                    super.onPostExecute(aVoid);
                   processingDialog.dismiss();
                   viewPDF();
                    }
            }

Now call above AsyncTask using

new MakePDF(ActivityName.this).execute(); //here in constructor pass context of an calling activity.

from your activity class
