Description

Android provides SeekBar control which is similar to progress bar except it has to drag and drop functionality by which user can adjust the functionality of the control. It is a part of widget category. Android studio provides a function to drag and drop the control in design interface so that developer can develop the app in quickly. We can use this control from palette bar.

 Controls like TextView and Seekbar are introduced in the program. These components are easily dragged and drop from palette toolbox and declare into the Main_Activity.xml. When controls are declared then you switch to Main_Activity.java file which contains control functionality performance. It is available in music player, volume adjustable interface and screen setting. SeekBar has OnprogressChanged, OnStartTrackingTouch and OnStopTrackingTouch method which is used check and tracks the user response.

Attributes

android:inderminate : it defines an indeterminate state of the seekbar. It means progress is not be identified.

android:max: In this attribute, we can define the maximum value of seekbar.

Android:progress : This attribute describe the default progress value of Seekbar.
