The progress bar provides a customizable visual that indicates the progress of a task. It includes features such as the ability to visualize progress in rectangle and circular shapes, determinate and indeterminate states, visualize progress in segments, customize ranges in different colors, and add animation.
Visualize progress in different shapes (rectangle, circle and semi-circle) to give a unique appearance to your app design.
Visualize the progress in different modes.
Use the determinate mode when the progress can be estimated.
Use the indeterminate mode when the progress cannot be estimated or is being calculated. It can be combined with determinate mode to let users know that the app is estimating the progress before the actual progress starts.
Use a secondary progress indicator when a primary task depends on a secondary task. This will allow users to visualize both primary and secondary tasks’ progress simultaneously.
Avoid writing several lines of code to create and position multiple progress bars; just divide a progress bar into multiple segments using the single API to visualize the progress of multiple sequential tasks.
Customize the start and sweep angle of the circular progress to give a unique style to the control.
Add any view at the center of the circular progress to: indicate the completion of the progress; add start, pause, or cancel buttons to control the progress interactively; add an image that indicates the actual task in progress; add custom text that conveys how far the task is completed.
Along with visualizing the progress of the task, users can also visualize multiple ranges with gradient colors or solid colors that are mapped to each range to enhance the readability of the progress.
Appearance is highly customizable.
Tweak the thickness of the track and progress indicator to render the control with different appearances.
Apply appealing colors to the track and progress indicator to match your app theme.
The corner radius of the progress bar can be customized.
