Android ImageView with Rounded Corners not working

android

I have definied the file thumb_rounded.xml and placed it inside the res/drawable folder in my android application. With this file i want to get rounded corners in my ImageViewthat contains the news thumb,

<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:shape="rectangle" >
<corners android:radius="13.0dip" />
</shape>

and i am setting this as background of my ImageView, however, i dont get the rounded corners, the image remains a rectangle. Does anyone have any idea on how to get that? I want to achieve the same effect as this screen:

B&H first screen

Many thanks

Best Solution

use it,

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle mBundle) {
super.onCreate(mBundle);
setContentView(R.layout.main);

ImageView image = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.img);
Bitmap bitImg = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(getResources(),
    R.drawable.default_profile_image);
image.setImageBitmap(getRoundedCornerImage(bitImg));
}

public static Bitmap getRoundedCornerImage(Bitmap bitmap) {
Bitmap output = Bitmap.createBitmap(bitmap.getWidth(),
    bitmap.getHeight(), Config.ARGB_8888);
Canvas canvas = new Canvas(output);

final int color = 0xff424242;
final Paint paint = new Paint();
final Rect rect = new Rect(0, 0, bitmap.getWidth(), bitmap.getHeight());
final RectF rectF = new RectF(rect);
final float roundPx = 100;

paint.setAntiAlias(true);
canvas.drawARGB(0, 0, 0, 0);
paint.setColor(color);
canvas.drawRoundRect(rectF, roundPx, roundPx, paint);

paint.setXfermode(new PorterDuffXfermode(Mode.SRC_IN));
canvas.drawBitmap(bitmap, rect, rect, paint);

return output;

}

Here , round corder is depend on roundPx.
