Components

Reusable components built to provide alerts, button groups, cards, input groups, media objects, navigation, and much more.

Progress

Use the custom progress component for displaying simple or complex progress bars. We don't use the HTML5 <progress> element, allowing you to stack progress bars, animate them, and place text labels over them.

How It Works #

Progress components are built with two HTML elements, some CSS to set the width, and a few attributes.

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

Example #

Put that all together, and you have the following examples.

<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 0%" aria-valuenow="0" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 25%" aria-valuenow="25" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 50%" aria-valuenow="50" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 75%" aria-valuenow="75" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 100%" aria-valuenow="100" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>

Additional Features #

Alter the appearance of your progress bars with custom CSS, background utilities, stripes, and more.

Labels #

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

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

To ensure that the label text remains legible even for low percentages, consider adding a min-width to the progress bar.

<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 0%;" aria-valuenow="0" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100">0%</div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 0%; min-width: 2rem;" aria-valuenow="0" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100">0%</div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 2%; min-width: 2rem;" aria-valuenow="2" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100">2%</div>
</div>

Height #

By setting a height value on the outer .progress, you change the height accordingly.

<div class="progress" style="height: .5rem;">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 25%;" aria-valuenow="25" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress" style="height: 2rem">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 25%;" aria-valuenow="25" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>

Color Variants #

Use our color utility classes to change the appearance of individual progress bars.

</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 class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped" role="progressbar" style="width: 10%" aria-valuenow="10" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped bg-success" role="progressbar" style="width: 25%" aria-valuenow="25" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped bg-info" role="progressbar" style="width: 50%" aria-valuenow="50" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped bg-warning" role="progressbar" style="width: 75%" aria-valuenow="75" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped bg-danger" role="progressbar" style="width: 100%" aria-valuenow="100" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</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.

Animated progress bars are not available in browsers that do not support CSS3 animations.

<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped progress-bar-animated" role="progressbar" aria-valuenow="75" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100" style="width: 75%"></div>
</div>

Stacked #

Include multiple progress bars in a progress component if you need.

<div class="progress">
<div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 15%" aria-valuenow="15" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
<div class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped bg-success" role="progressbar" style="width: 30%" aria-valuenow="30" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
<div class="progress-bar bg-info" role="progressbar" style="width: 20%" aria-valuenow="20" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
