Progress dialog is used to show message and progress of any operation. when we show a Progress dialog it does not allow user to interact with the app. It is a independent modal window and it does not incorporate with the current activity layout.
Below is the code to show a simple progress Dialog. You can copy and paste this code in your activity.
private ProgressDialog pDialog; Activity activity activity = this; pDialog = new ProgressDialog(activity); pDialog.setMessage("Your data is saving, please wait ..."); pDialog.setCancelable(false); pDialog.show();
It is customizable, more attributes and methods are available to change look and feel of a ProgressDialog.
