ProgressDialog Example In Android Studio
Step 1: Create a new project and name it ProgressDialogExample.

Step 2: Open res -> layout -> activity_main.xml (or) main.xml and add following code:

Here define two buttons

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/activity_main"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    tools:context="com.example.progessdialogexample.MainActivity"
    android:elevation="1dp">

    <Button
        android:text="  Click To View Ring Progress Dialog..."
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_marginTop="171dp"
        android:id="@+id/button"
        style="@android:style/Widget.DeviceDefault.Button.Inset"
        android:textStyle="normal|bold"
        android:textSize="15sp"
        android:textColor="@android:color/background_dark"
        android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true" />

    <Button
        android:text="  Click To View Progress Dialog..."
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        style="@android:style/Widget.DeviceDefault.Button.Inset"
        android:layout_marginTop="49dp"
        android:textSize="15sp"
        android:id="@+id/button2"
        android:textStyle="normal|bold"
        android:textColor="@android:color/background_dark"
        android:layout_below="@+id/button"
        android:layout_centerHorizontal="true" />
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 : Now open app -> java -> package -> MainActivity.java and add the below code.

In this we added the progress dialog functionality on the button click having onclicklistener.  The two buttons both are displaying different type of progress dialog which is set using setProgressStyle i.e spinner or horizontal bar.

package com.example.progessdialogexample;

import android.app.ProgressDialog;
import android.os.Handler;
import android.os.Message;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    Button b1, b2;
    ProgressDialog progressDialog;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        b1 = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button);
        b2 = (Button) findViewById(R.id.button2);

        b1.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                progressDialog = new ProgressDialog(MainActivity.this);
                progressDialog.setMessage("Loading..."); // Setting Message
                progressDialog.setTitle("ProgressDialog"); // Setting Title
                progressDialog.setProgressStyle(ProgressDialog.STYLE_SPINNER); // Progress Dialog Style Spinner
                progressDialog.show(); // Display Progress Dialog
                progressDialog.setCancelable(false);
                new Thread(new Runnable() {
                    public void run() {
                        try {
                            Thread.sleep(10000);
                        } catch (Exception e) {
                            e.printStackTrace();
                        }
                        progressDialog.dismiss();
                    }
                }).start();
            }
        });

        b2.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            Handler handle = new Handler() {
                public void handleMessage(Message msg) {
                    super.handleMessage(msg);
                    progressDialog.incrementProgressBy(2); // Incremented By Value 2
                }
            };

            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                progressDialog = new ProgressDialog(MainActivity.this);
                progressDialog.setMax(100); // Progress Dialog Max Value
                progressDialog.setMessage("Loading..."); // Setting Message
                progressDialog.setTitle("ProgressDialog"); // Setting Title
                progressDialog.setProgressStyle(ProgressDialog.STYLE_HORIZONTAL); // Progress Dialog Style Horizontal
                progressDialog.show(); // Display Progress Dialog
                progressDialog.setCancelable(false);
                new Thread(new Runnable() {
                    @Override
                    public void run() {
                        try {
                            while (progressDialog.getProgress() <= progressDialog.getMax()) {
                                Thread.sleep(200);
                                handle.sendMessage(handle.obtainMessage());
                                if (progressDialog.getProgress() == progressDialog.getMax()) {
                                    progressDialog.dismiss();
                                }
                            }
                        } catch (Exception e) {
                            e.printStackTrace();
                        }
                    }
                }).start();
            }
        });
    }
}

Output:

Now start the AVD in Emulator and run the App. You will see two button. Click on them and see the different ProgressDialog in android.
