android – Disable changes on seekbar by client-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have a SeekBar that will change the progress when I require it to, but I don’t want the user to be able to change it manually.

I tried to set the SeekBar as this:

        android:progressDrawable="@drawable/customprogressbar" />

But it doesn’t work.

How can I do this?

That’s more or less an example of how this is going to be seen by the client.

I used a custom style because in the future I’ll need to change the background images and the progress depending on which section the SeekBar will be.

Thanks for all!

How to solve:

One thing you can do is to disable
the seekbar,
Like seekbar.setEnabled(false)

doing so framework will not accept any
Touch event from user and you
Can change progress level only through code.

I hope this will help you…….


You can use android:enabled=”false” , but it will display disable effect [darken your seekbar].

So if you want to display enable seekbar with no response to thumb activity, implement touch event handler with return true as shown below.

seekBar.setOnTouchListener(new OnTouchListener(){
  public boolean onTouch(View v, MotionEvent event) {
    return true;


Just return false from onTouch method of CustomSeekBar class.

Hope this works !
