How it works

Documentation and examples for using Bootstrap custom progress bars featuring support for stacked bars, animated backgrounds, and text labels.

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.

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

</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>

Bootstrap provides a handful of utilities for setting width. Depending on your needs, these may help with quickly configuring progress.

  <div class="progress-bar w-75" role="progressbar" aria-valuenow="75" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>

Labels

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

25%

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

Height

We only set a height value on the .progress, so if you change that value the inner .progress-bar will automatically resize accordingly.

Copy to clipboard<div class="progress" style="height: 1px;">
  <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: 20px;">
  <div class="progress-bar" role="progressbar" style="width: 25%;" aria-valuenow="25" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100"></div>
</div>
