android – How to change the position of a progress dialog?

Questions:

I’m developing an android app and need to know how to change the positioning of a progress dialog. I need it to be positioned at the bottom of the screen instead of at the center like it is by default.

How to&Answers:

You can call ProgressDialog#getWindow#setGravity(...) to change the gravity.

So:

ProgressDialog dialog = ProgressDialog.show(AContext, "Test", "On the bottom");
                dialog.getWindow().setGravity(Gravity.BOTTOM);

Answer:

In addition to the other answers you can use LayoutParams.x or LayoutParams.y to provide an offset from the given edge. For Example:

progressDialog = ProgressDialog.show(this, "Title","Text");

progressDialog.getWindow().setGravity(Gravity.TOP);
LayoutParams params = progressDialog.getWindow().getAttributes();
params.y = 100;
progressDialog.getWindow().setAttributes(params);

And it is good for you to know about LayoutParams.y:

Y position for this window. With the default gravity it is ignored.
When using TOP or BOTTOM it provides an offset from the given edge.

and about LayoutParams.x:

X position for this window. With the default gravity it is ignored.
When using LEFT or START or RIGHT or END it provides an offset from
the given edge.

Answer:

If you’re using any custom theme for the ProgressDialog, Then you could add the below xml tag to the style in your style.xml file of the custom theme

<item name="android:layout_gravity">bottom</item>

Answer:

Adding android:gravity=”bottom” to the outermost XML element in the layout might do it. Not sure if this moves the dialog or the contents of it.
