Next step is setting up some padding this you can adjust according to you wish.



Then here comes our color.

<solid android:color="#000000"/>


At last set you radius at every corner for rounded corner button make sure all the sides are same.Also you can specify the single line as radius which considers the value to all sides.



Creating round.xml :

<shape xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    <solid android:color="#000000"/> 
    <corners android:radius="10dp"/>

Save it as a xml file in drawable folder and set this as background to your button.
