Progress Bar

Bootstrap Progress Bar / Bootstrap loaders

Bootstrap progress bar is a component which displays a progress of a process in which user is involved. Their color, shape, and animation can be customized.

If it takes too long for your website to load up, your user will be less stressed about it when he sees a simple progress bar. It means as much as “Everything is fine. The content you want to see will load in a few seconds”

        </div>

      

How it works

Progress components are built with two HTML elements, some CSS to set the width, and a few attributes. We don’t use the HTML5 <progress> element, ensuring you can stack progress bars, animate them, and place text labels over them.

  • We use the .progress as a wrapper to indicate the max value of the progress bar.
  • We use the inner .progress-bar to indicate the progress so far.
  • The .progress-bar requires an inline style, utility class, or custom CSS to set their width.
  • The .progress-bar also requires some role and aria attributes to make it accessible.

Height

Set a height value on the .progress and .progress-bar.

          <div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 25%; height: 20px" aria-valuenow="25" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
        </div>

      

Labels

Add labels to your progress bars by placing text within the .progress-bar.

        <div class="progress md-progress" style="height: 20px">
            <div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 25%; height: 20px" aria-valuenow="25" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100">25%</div>
        </div>

      

Contextual alternatives

Progress bars use some of the same button and alert classes for consistent styles.

        </div>

      

Striped

Add .progress-bar-striped to any .progress-bar to apply a stripe via CSS gradient over the progress bar’s background color.

        </div>

      

Animated stripes

The striped gradient can also be animated. Add .progress-bar-animated to .progress-bar to animate the stripes right to left via CSS3 animations.
