Jetpack Compose Custom Progress Bar with Animation

jetpack compose progress bar

This is a Jetpack Compose progress bar UI with animation. It utilizes the Canvas API to draw the circles. There are two circles – foreground indicator and background indicator. The foreground indicator is the one that gets animated when the progress value is changed.

In Android, the Jetpack Compose has two default progress bars. They are linear and circular. Both of them doesn’t offer many customization options. You can’t change the indicator size, animation duration, width, etc… So, if you want to create your own custom progress bar, you have to use Canvas which offers a lot of customizations along with animation APIs.

Coming to the UI, there are two indicators. The foreground indicator has more stroke width and gets animated when you press the animate button. The background indicator has less stroke width and stays the same. I have applied StrokeCap.Round style to the background one. sweepAngle of the foreground one is the mutable variable. When its value is changed, the whole UI is recomposed.

The Jetpack Compose progress bar which has animation has both Canvas and Text. They are inside the Box with center alignment. The text shows the progress value. It has also animateFloatAsState animation. You can change the animation duration and tween according to your requirements.

If you want to use this code, you need to download the latest Android Studio. This is because the Jetpack Compose doesn’t work in the older versions.
