Change size of Android-Seekbar?

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have a question concerning seekbars.
I tried several things but nothing helped.
I want to change the height of the seekbar, but not the complete seekbar, only the bar where you scroll over with your thumb. I tried several things e.g. setBackGroundDrawable and setProgressDrawable and made my own drawables, but the drawable-size is fixed to the size of the Standard-Android-Seekbar.
What can I do now?

How to&Answers:

You have to add some padding in all directions and than set the min and max height. Here are one example that I used:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<SeekBar xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
        android:layout_width="fill_parent"
        android:progressDrawable="@drawable/custom_player_seekbar_background"
        android:paddingTop="10px" 
        android:paddingBottom="10px" 
        android:thumb="@drawable/bt_do_player" 
        android:paddingLeft="30px" 
        android:paddingRight="30px" 
        android:minHeight="6dip"
        android:maxHeight="6dip" 
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_centerVertical="true"/>
