Circular Progress Bar ( for a countdown timer )

Ok so I have a countdown timer of 15 seconds that works perfectly fine and I'd like to make a custom circular progress bar for that timer.

I want to create a full circle that gets "slices of the pie (circle)" taken out as the timer goes down until there is no longer a circle.

I'd prefer to make the shapes myself than use pre-made images because I'd like the quality to be good on any phone. How would I go about this? Thanks!

Answer

I found this example very good: http://mrigaen.blogspot.it/2013/12/create-circular-progress-bar-in-android.html

So I created my progress bar in this way

<ProgressBar
    android:id="@+id/barTimer"
    style="?android:attr/progressBarStyleHorizontal"
    android:layout_width="200dp"
    android:layout_height="200dp"
    android:layout_centerInParent="true"
    android:progressDrawable="@drawable/circular_progress_bar" />

Then I made a function for the countdown where:

private void startTimer(final int minuti) {
    countDownTimer = new CountDownTimer(60 * minuti * 1000, 500) {
        // 500 means, onTick function will be called at every 500 milliseconds

        @Override
        public void onTick(long leftTimeInMilliseconds) {
            long seconds = leftTimeInMilliseconds / 1000;
            int barVal= (barMax) - ((int)(seconds/60*100)+(int)(seconds%60));
            barTimer.setProgress(barVal);
            textTimer.setText(String.format("%02d", seconds/60) + ":" + String.format("%02d", seconds%60));
            // format the textview to show the easily readable format

        }
        @Override
        public void onFinish() {
            if(textTimer.getText().equals("00:00")){
                textTimer.setText("STOP");          
            }
            else{
                textTimer.setText("2:00");
            }
        }
    }.start();

}

UPDATE

private void startTimer(final int minuti) {
    countDownTimer = new CountDownTimer(60 * minuti * 1000, 500) {
        // 500 means, onTick function will be called at every 500 milliseconds

        @Override
        public void onTick(long leftTimeInMilliseconds) {
            long seconds = leftTimeInMilliseconds / 1000;
            barTimer.setProgress((int)seconds);
            textTimer.setText(String.format("%02d", seconds/60) + ":" + String.format("%02d", seconds%60));
            // format the textview to show the easily readable format

        }
        @Override
        public void onFinish() {
            if(textTimer.getText().equals("00:00")){
                textTimer.setText("STOP"); 
            }
            else{
                textTimer.setText("2:00");
                barTimer.setProgress(60*minuti);
            }
        }
    }.start();

}
