ImageView in circular through xml

I'd Like to make any image from my

ImageView
to be circular with a border.

I searched but couldn't find any useful information (anything that I tried didn't work).

How can I achieve this through xml:
Create an
ImageView
with certain src and make it circular with a border?

Answer

You can make a simple circle with white border and transparent content with shape.

// res/drawable/circle.xml

<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:innerRadius="0dp"
    android:shape="ring"
    android:thicknessRatio="1.9"
    android:useLevel="false" >
    <solid android:color="@android:color/transparent" />

    <stroke
        android:width="10dp"
        android:color="@android:color/white" />
</shape>

Then make a layerlist drawable and put it as background to your imageview.

// res/drawable/img.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

    <item android:drawable="@drawable/ic_launcher"/>
    <item android:drawable="@drawable/circle"/>

</layer-list>

and put it as background to your imageview.

   <ImageView
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:background="@drawable/img"/>

You'll have something like that.
