Android change Horizonal Progress bar color

I have set Horizontal Progress bar.

I would like to change progress color of yellow.

<ProgressBar android:id="@+id/progressbar" android:layout_width="80dip"
android:layout_height="20dip" android:focusable="false"
style="?android:attr/progressBarStyleHorizontal" />


The problem is, the progress color is different in different devices.
So, I want it to fix the progress color.

Answer

I copied this from one of my apps, so there's prob a few extra attributes, but should give you the idea. This is from the layout that has the progress bar:

<ProgressBar
    android:id="@+id/ProgressBar"
    style="?android:attr/progressBarStyleHorizontal"
    android:layout_width="fill_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:indeterminate="false"
    android:maxHeight="10dip"
    android:minHeight="10dip"
    android:progress="50"
    android:progressDrawable="@drawable/greenprogress" />

Then create a new drawable with something similar to the following (In this case greenprogress.xml):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<item android:id="@android:id/background">
    <shape>
        <corners android:radius="5dip" />
        <gradient
                android:startColor="#ff9d9e9d"
                android:centerColor="#ff5a5d5a"
                android:centerY="0.75"
                android:endColor="#ff747674"
                android:angle="270"
        />
    </shape>
</item>

<item android:id="@android:id/secondaryProgress">
    <clip>
        <shape>
            <corners android:radius="5dip" />
            <gradient
                    android:startColor="#80ffd300"
                    android:centerColor="#80ffb600"
                    android:centerY="0.75"
                    android:endColor="#a0ffcb00"
                    android:angle="270"
            />
        </shape>
    </clip>
</item>
<item
    android:id="@android:id/progress"
>
    <clip>
        <shape>
            <corners
                android:radius="5dip" />
            <gradient
                android:startColor="#33FF33"
                android:endColor="#008000"
                android:angle="270" />
        </shape>
    </clip>
</item>

</layer-list>

You can change up the colors as needed, this will give you a green progress bar.
