Bootstrap Progress Bars

In general, the progress bar is a graphical user interface used to visualize progression of computer operation such as file download, file transfer, showing action status to the users or installation of files. For instance, consider a task running within program that might take a while to complete. It provides some indication to user that the task is running, how long it may take to complete, how much work has already been done etc. These are all the activities which can be shown by using the progress bars.

Bootstrap Default Progress Bar

The following example demonstrates creation of default progress bar:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
<title>Bootstrap Example</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
<h2>Default Progress Bar</h2>
<div class="progress">
   <div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" aria-valuenow="50"
      aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100" style="width: 55%;">
   <span class="sr-only">55% Complete</span>
   </div>
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Bootstrap Progress Bar with Label

We can create progress bar to show visible percentage by just removing the .sr-only class within progress bar. It will show the percentage level on the progress bar as shown in the below example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
<title>Bootstrap Example</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
<h2>Progress Bar with Label</h2>
<div class="progress">
   <div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" aria-valuenow="50"
      aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100" style="width: 55%;">55% Complete</span>
   </div>
</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Bootstrap Alternative Progress Bars

It’s possible to create different types of progress bars each with different colors by simply wrapping those classes with div element. Following are the four types which provide different styles to progress bar:

  • progress-bar-success
  • progress-bar-info
  • progress-bar-warning
  • progress-bar-danger

Use these classes within div element along with base class .progress-bar class. The following is an example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
<title>Bootstrap Example</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.1.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
