The progress bars are used to determine certain milestones during a task to a percentage. You can create a progress bar in HTML that specifies the completion progress of a task.

To create a basic Progress Bar using JavaScript, the following steps needs to be carried out:

  • Create HTML structure for your progress bar – The HTML <progress> tag specifies a completion progress of a task.
<div id="Progress_Status">
<div id="myprogressBar"></div>
</div>
  • Adding CSS –  The next step is to add background color of the progress bar as well as the progress status in the bar with the help of CSS.
#Progress_Status {
width: 50%;
background-color: #ddd;
}

#myprogressBar {
width: 1%;
height: 35px;
background-color: #4CAF50;
text-align: center;
line-height: 32px;
color: black;
}
  • Adding JavaScript –  The next step is to create a dynamic animated progess bar using javascript functions update and scene.
<script>
function update() {
var element = document.getElementById("myprogressBar");
var width = 1;
var identity = setInterval(scene, 10);
function scene() {
if (width >= 100) {
clearInterval(identity);
} else {
width++;
element.style.width = width + '%';
}
}
}
</script>

Now that you know the different steps to create a progress bar, let’s move on and have a look at the complete example of a progress bar.

width: 50%;
background-color: #ddd;
}

#myprogressBar {
width: 2%;
height: 20px;
background-color: #4CAF50;
}
</style>
<body>

<h3>Example of Progress Bar Using JavaScript</h3>

var element = document.getElementById("myprogressBar");
var width = 1;
var identity = setInterval(scene, 10);
function scene() {
if (width >= 100) {
clearInterval(identity);
} else {
width++;
element.style.width = width + '%';
}
}
}
</script>

</body>
</html>
