How to draw a curved line in android?

should help you out I am new to Android and I am developing a sample project on drawing lines. I want to draw a curved or elevated line connecting two points (x1,y1 and x2,y2). I tried canvas.drawArc() method, but the RectF values inside the drawArc method is just the x,y center points of circle. It is giving me an arc between my two points. But I want a curved line exactly connecting my two points. Can somebody help me? in advance. , Declare this method inside onDraw method:
code :
private void drawOvalAndArrow(Canvas canvas){

    Paint circlePaint = new Paint();

    float centerWidth = canvas.getWidth()/2; //get center x of display
    float centerHeight = canvas.getHeight()/2; //get center y of display
    float circleRadius = 20; //set radius 
    float circleDistance = 200; //set distance between both circles

    //draw circles
    canvas.drawCircle(centerWidth, centerHeight, circleRadius, circlePaint);
    canvas.drawCircle(centerWidth+circleDistance, centerHeight, circleRadius, circlePaint);

    //to draw an arrow, just lines needed, so style is only STROKE

    //create a path to draw on
    Path arrowPath = new Path();

    //create an invisible oval. the oval is for "behind the scenes" ,to set the path´
    //area. Imagine this is an egg behind your circles. the circles are in the middle of this egg
    final RectF arrowOval = new RectF();
            centerWidth + circleDistance, 

    //add the oval to path

    //draw path on canvas
    canvas.drawPath(arrowPath, circlePaint);

    //draw arrowhead on path start
     arrowPath.moveTo(centerWidth,centerHeight ); //move to the center of first circle
     arrowPath.lineTo(centerWidth-circleRadius, centerHeight-circleRadius);//draw the first arrowhead line to the left
     arrowPath.moveTo(centerWidth,centerHeight );//move back to the center
     arrowPath.lineTo(centerWidth+circleRadius, centerHeight-circleRadius);//draw the next arrowhead line to the right

     //same as above on path end
     arrowPath.moveTo(centerWidth+circleDistance,centerHeight );
     arrowPath.lineTo((centerWidth+circleDistance)-circleRadius, centerHeight-circleRadius);
     arrowPath.moveTo(centerWidth+circleDistance,centerHeight );
     arrowPath.lineTo((centerWidth+circleDistance)+circleRadius, centerHeight-circleRadius);

     //draw the path

protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {

    PointF mPoint1 = new PointF(w/1.2F, h/1.2F);
    PointF mPoint2 = new PointF(w/24, h/1.2F);
    Path myPath1 = new Path();
    Paint paint  = new Paint();

    myPath1 = drawCurve(canvas, paint, mPoint1, mPoint2);
    canvas.drawPath(myPath1, paint);


private Path drawCurve(Canvas canvas, Paint paint, PointF mPointa, PointF mPointb) {

    Path myPath = new Path();
    myPath.moveTo(63*w/64, h/10);
    myPath.quadTo(mPointa.x, mPointa.y, mPointb.x, mPointb.y);
    return myPath;

help you fix your problem In OpenGL ES 1.0 you can use glDrawArrays in GL_LINES mode. It will do exactly what the Canvas is doing with your data, but considerably faster

I wish did fix the issue. You expressed an interest in seeing how this could be solved using the stencil buffer yesterday, so I am following up with some basic pseudo-code.
code :
glClearStencil (0x0);
glClear        (GL_STENCIL_BUFFER_BIT);

glEnable       (GL_STENCIL_TEST);
glStencilFunc  (GL_ALWAYS, 0x0, 0x0);

// Add 1 to stencil buffer at every location the object to be bordered is visible
glStencilOp    (GL_KEEP, GL_KEEP, GL_INCR);

// Draw your grey object

// Only draw the red border where the grey object was never drawn (stencil = 0x0)
glStencilFunc  (GL_EQUAL, 0x0, 0xff);

// Draw your red quarter circles

glDisable     (GL_STENCIL_TEST);

may help you . Use the Paint.setStrokeCap() method. You need Paint.Cap.ROUND. The default one is Paint.Cap.BUTT. There is a similar Path property that is called path join. It determines how to draw the parts of the path where it's constituent segments join. To set it use Path.setPathJoin(). You might need it in the future. Good luck.

may help you . You can implement the curved dashed polyline between two points. For this purpose you can use Google Maps Android API Utility Library that has SphericalUtil class and apply some math in your code to create a polyline.
You have to include the utility library in your gradle as
code :
public class MapsActivity extends FragmentActivity implements OnMapReadyCallback {

private GoogleMap mMap;
private LatLng sydney1;
private LatLng sydney2;

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    // Obtain the SupportMapFragment and get notified when the map is ready to be used.
    SupportMapFragment mapFragment = (SupportMapFragment) getSupportFragmentManager()

public void onMapReady(GoogleMap googleMap) {
    mMap = googleMap;


    // Add a marker in Sydney and move the camera
    sydney1 = new LatLng(-33.904438,151.249852);
    sydney2 = new LatLng(-33.905823,151.252422);

    mMap.addMarker(new MarkerOptions().position(sydney1)
            .draggable(false).visible(true).title("Marker in Sydney 1"));
    mMap.addMarker(new MarkerOptions().position(sydney2)
            .draggable(false).visible(true).title("Marker in Sydney 2"));

    mMap.moveCamera(CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLngZoom(sydney1, 16F));

    this.showCurvedPolyline(sydney1,sydney2, 0.5);

private void showCurvedPolyline (LatLng p1, LatLng p2, double k) {
    //Calculate distance and heading between two points
    double d = SphericalUtil.computeDistanceBetween(p1,p2);
    double h = SphericalUtil.computeHeading(p1, p2);

    //Midpoint position
    LatLng p = SphericalUtil.computeOffset(p1, d*0.5, h);

    //Apply some mathematics to calculate position of the circle center
    double x = (1-k*k)*d*0.5/(2*k);
    double r = (1+k*k)*d*0.5/(2*k);

    LatLng c = SphericalUtil.computeOffset(p, x, h + 90.0);

    //Polyline options
    PolylineOptions options = new PolylineOptions();
    List<PatternItem> pattern = Arrays.<PatternItem>asList(new Dash(30), new Gap(20));

    //Calculate heading between circle center and two points
    double h1 = SphericalUtil.computeHeading(c, p1);
    double h2 = SphericalUtil.computeHeading(c, p2);

    //Calculate positions of points on circle border and add them to polyline options
    int numpoints = 100;
    double step = (h2 -h1) / numpoints;

    for (int i=0; i < numpoints; i++) {
        LatLng pi = SphericalUtil.computeOffset(c, r, h1 + i * step);

    //Draw polyline
