I have created XML files (focus, enable, disable, press) using Statelist drawable for my custom button but I have few queries…

  1. How button code gets differed from Custom button in XML .
  2. I want to know whole procedure ( steps to write XML & Java code) for creating custom button with multiple background states .

Other than applying a StateListDrawable to a Button, I have not done anything more with respect to creating some sort of custom multi-state button implementation. You might look at the source code to CompoundButton to get some ideas (and, depending on your needs, CompoundButton might be the right base class to use).
