Android Tinting ProgressBar


Example

Using an AppCompat theme, the ProgressBar's color will be the colorAccent you have defined.

5.0

To change the ProgressBar color without changing the accent color you can use theandroid:theme attribute overriding the accent color:

<ProgressBar  
    android:theme="@style/MyProgress"
    style="@style/Widget.AppCompat.ProgressBar" />

<!-- res/values/styles.xml -->
<style name="MyProgress" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light">  
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/myColor</item>
</style>  

To tint the ProgressBar you can use in the xml file the attributes android:indeterminateTintMode and android:indeterminateTint

<ProgressBar
    android:indeterminateTintMode="src_in"
    android:indeterminateTint="@color/my_color"
/>
