SmoothProgressBar HOW TO notes
IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CASTORFLEX-SMOOTHPROGRESSBAR EXAMPLE of Chris Banes
1- Download the zip file from https://github.com/castorflex/SmoothProgressBar
2- Create a new workspace with Eclipse.
3- Copy the zip file into the workspace and unzip.
4- Import the android as below.
5- There are two main project names with the name ‘Main’. If you try you will
get error message saying that there is already a project names ‘Main’. The
solution is: We will first open only two not three projecst and then add the
resources and source files of the third manually.
6- With two projects, it gives the below error message. The mainactivity can not
find some resources related to the circular progress bar includes.
7- Add manually the resources of the circular progres bar and clean the project.
The styles mistake got corrected.
8- But still continues the R not found error.
Import uk.co.senab.smoothprogresbar.library.R; so that the JAVA programs that
use the resources we have added can see them.
9- The program compiles but does not work when deployed. Because I forgot
to move the JAVA lib contents to the src lib at the MainActivity project that
uses the smoothprogresbar lib.
10- It repeated the resource error again. It could not see general resources: R.dimen, R.color, R.integer. I had added the
This may help in some cases but the solution to the current one was:
I added this to the top of AndroidManifest.xml file. All the general res items are
Accessed through this.
11- Resource errors are cleaned but: Minimum version errors appear.
Change AndroidManifest.xml file and add
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="14" android:targetSdkVersion="21"/>
