How to make the corner circle of the button?

I want to round the corner of the button. Is there an easy way to do this in Android?

#1 building

Create an xml file in the drawable folder as follows

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    android:shape="rectangle" android:padding="10dp">
    <!-- you can use any color you want I used here gray color-->
    <solid android:color="#ABABAB"/> 
    <corners android:radius="10dp"/>
</shape>

Apply this as a background to the button you want to round the corner.

Or you can use a separate radius for each corner below

android:bottomRightRadius="10dp"
android:bottomLeftRadius="10dp"
android:topLeftRadius="10dp"
android:topRightRadius="10dp"

If you want something like this

This is the code.

1. Create an XML file in the paintable folder in mybutton.xml and paste the following tags:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >
    <item android:state_pressed="true" >
        <shape android:shape="rectangle"  >
            <corners android:radius="3dip" />
            <stroke android:width="1dip" android:color="#5e7974" />
            <gradient android:angle="-90" android:startColor="#345953" android:endColor="#689a92"  />            
        </shape>
    </item>
    <item android:state_focused="true">
        <shape android:shape="rectangle"  >
            <corners android:radius="3dip" />
            <stroke android:width="1dip" android:color="#5e7974" />
            <solid android:color="#58857e"/>       
        </shape>
    </item>  
    <item >
       <shape android:shape="rectangle"  >
            <corners android:radius="3dip" />
            <stroke android:width="1dip" android:color="#5e7974" />
            <gradient android:angle="-90" android:startColor="#8dbab3" android:endColor="#58857e" />            
       </shape>
    </item>
</selector>

2. Now use this drawable as the background of the view. If the view is a button, then something like this:

<Button
    android:id="@+id/button1"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:padding="10dp"
    android:textColor="#ffffff"
    android:background="@drawable/mybutton"
    android:text="Buttons" />

Create shape.xml in the drawable folder

Like shape.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >
  <stroke android:width="2dp"
    android:color="#FFFFFF"/>
  <gradient 
    android:angle="225"
    android:startColor="#DD2ECCFA"
    android:endColor="#DD000000"/>
<corners
    android:bottomLeftRadius="7dp"
    android:bottomRightRadius="7dp"
    android:topLeftRadius="7dp"
   android:topRightRadius="7dp" />
</shape>

And in myactivity.xml

You can use the

<Button
    android:id="@+id/btn_Shap"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" 
    android:text="@string/Shape"
    android:background="@drawable/shape"/>

The easy way I found out was to create a new xml file in the drawable folder, and then point the button background to that xml file. Inherited the code I used:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shape="rectangle">

<solid android:color="#ff8100"/>
<corners android:radius="5dp"/>

</shape>

#5 building

Create the grouped btn.xml file in the Drawable folder

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"> 
     <solid android:color="@color/#FFFFFF"/>    

     <stroke android:width="1dp"
        android:color="@color/#000000"
        />

     <padding android:left="1dp"
         android:top="1dp"
         android:right="1dp"
         android:bottom="1dp"
         /> 

     <corners android:bottomRightRadius="5dip" android:bottomLeftRadius="5dip" 
         android:topLeftRadius="5dip" android:topRightRadius="5dip"/> 
  </shape>

And use this.xml file as the button background

<Button
android:id="@+id/btn"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:background="@drawable/rounded_btn"
android:text="Test" />
