Another way to show progress. A progress View over the system StatusBar. in addition to showing a toast message.

The first form is suitable for showing that the activity is being loaded like fetching data from server, meanwhile the second form is better for real process.

1.2.0: Toast, waiting balls and percentage text has been removed due to chaotic notches on phones which will cause them to be covered at least on some devices even if added a method to position them manually and caluclating notch coordinates is a lot of work results in ugly positioning for a simple idea

Another way to show progress. A progress View over the system StatusBar.

That was for android pre-oreo on oreo and above statusbar will remain visible for all options like this:


1- Add repositories to you project build.gradle

allprojects {
    repositories {
        maven { url '' }

2- Add it as a dependency to your app build.gradle

dependencies {
  compile 'com.github.BaselHorany:ProgressStatusBar:1.2.4'


1- In your Activity class

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    ProgressStatusBar mProgressStatusBar;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        mProgressStatusBar = new ProgressStatusBar(this); 

    //show progress
        mProgressStatusBar.startFakeProgress(3000); //make fake progress from 0 to 100 in 3 sec.
        mProgressStatusBar.setProgress(60); //set progress value manually

    //options, anytime before you start a new progress 
    mProgressStatusBar.setProgressColor(COLOR);//default #40212121
    mProgressStatusBar.setProgressBackgroundColor(COLOR);//default transparent

        mProgressStatusBar.setProgressListener(new ProgressStatusBar.OnProgressListener() {
            public void onStart() {
                //ex: lock the UI or tent it
            public void onUpdate(int progress) {
                //ex: simulate with another progressView
            public void onEnd() {
                //ex: continue the job
