How to show a Progress Bar inside an AlertDialog Builder along with other elements without an XML?


I am trying to create an AlertDialog for a Bluetooth transfer after the transfer notification is touched in an android phone.

I am trying something like this: Out of the below, I am getting everything - icon, title and two buttons. I am sure I can add other info like From, FileName and others using cursors with the help AlertDialog.Builder properties. I just do not know to get a progress-bar in it. I do not want to use an XML.

protected Dialog onCreateDialog(int id) { AlertDialog.Builder alertDialogBuilder = new AlertDialog.Builder(this); alertDialogBuilder.setIcon(R.id.imageFile); alertDialogBuilder.setTitle("File Transfer"); ProgressDialog progressDialog; Context mContext = null; progressDialog = new ProgressDialog(mContext); progressDialog.setProgressStyle(ProgressDialog.STYLE_HORIZONTAL); //alertDialogBuilder.setView(progressDialog); //STUCK HERE //"!" icon and "File Transfer" //from : device name //File: <name> //Type: <type> (<size>) //Receiving/Sending File //<%> | Green progress bar //Hide and Stop buttons alertDialogBuilder.setPositiveButton("STOP", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() { public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) { dialog.cancel(); } }); alertDialogBuilder.setNegativeButton("HIDE", new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() { public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int id) { dialog.cancel(); } }); AlertDialog alertDialog = alertDialogBuilder.create(); return alertDialog; }

I have everything in place except I am not able to figure out how to bring a progress-bar here.

Can I getjust a progress-bar using XML layout and use as

alertDialogBuilder.setView(R.id.what-ever-xml-file) Or how to create a view for that progress-bar in he Java file itself and put a progressbar in that view and then put that view inside the dialog.

I want sth like this:

<img alt="Alert Dialog with ProgressBar" class="b-lazy" data-src="https://i.imgur.com/WYBMy.png" data-original="https://i.imgur.com/WYBMy.png" src="https://etrip.eimg.top/images/2019/05/07/timg.gif" />


You can use <strong>Dialog</strong> and add ProgressBar on this by using

_dialog.addContentView(view, params) method.
