ProgressBar - Documentation | www.HtmlElements.com

Overview

Smart.ProgressBar represents a colored bar that displays the stage of the current process.

There are two types of Smart Progress bar element:

  • Linear - smart-progress-bar
  • Circular - smart-circular-progress-bar

Getting Started with ProgressBar Web Component

Smart UI for Web Components is distributed as smart-webcomponents NPM package. You can also get the full download from our website with all demos from the Download page.

Setup the ProgressBar

Smart UI for Web Components is distributed as smart-webcomponents NPM package

  1. Download and install the package.

    npm install smart-webcomponents

  2. Once installed, import the ProgressBar module in your application.

    <script type="module" src="node_modules/smart-webcomponents/source/modules/smart.progressbar.js"></script>

  3. Adding CSS reference

    The smart.default.css CSS file should be referenced using following code.

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="node_modules/smart-webcomponents/source/styles/smart.default.css" />

  4. Add the ProgressBar tag to your Web Page

    <smart-progress-bar id="progressbar"></smart-progress-bar>

  5. Create the ProgressBar Component

    	<script type="module">
    		Smart('#progressbar', class {
    			get properties() {
    				return { value: 50 }
    			}
    		});
    	</script>	   
    		

    Another option is to create the ProgressBar is by using the traditional Javascript way:
    	const progressbar = document.createElement('smart-progress-bar');
    
    	progressbar.disabled = true;
    	document.body.appendChild(progressbar);
    		

    Smart framework provides a way to dynamically create a web component on demand from a DIV tag which is used as a host. The following imports the web component's module and creates it on demand, when the document is ready. The #progressbar is the ID of a DIV tag.

    	import "../../source/modules/smart.progressbar.js";
    
    	document.readyState === 'complete' ? init() : window.onload = init;
    
    	function init() { 
    		const progressbar = new Smart.ProgressBar('#progressbar', { value: 50 });
    	}
    	

  6. Open the page in your web server.
Load scripts

The following code adds the custom element to the page.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../source/styles/smart.default.css" type="text/css" />
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.element.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.progressbar.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
 <smart-progress-bar></smart-progress-bar>
</body>
</html>

Note how smart.element.js is declared before everything else. This is mandatory for all custom elements.

Demo

Appearance

To set the value of the progress bar the user has to apply a value to the value property as an HTML attribute:

 <smart-progress-bar value="50"></smart-progress-bar>
 <smart-circular-progress-bar value="50"></smart-circular-progress-bar>

Demo

or using javascript:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../source/styles/smart.default.css" type="text/css" />
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.element.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.progressbar.js"></script>
 <script>
     window.onload = function () {
         document.querySelector('smart-progress-bar').value = 25;
         document.querySelector('smart-circular-progress-bar').value = 25;
     }
 </script>
</head>
<body>
 <smart-progress-bar></smart-progress-bar>
 <smart-circular-progress-bar></smart-circular-progress-bar>
</body>
</html>

Demo

The direction of the progress can be inverted by applying the inverted property:

 <smart-progress-bar value="25" inverted></smart-progress-bar>
 <smart-circular-progress-bar value="25" inverted></smart-circular-progress-bar>

Demo

The linear progress bar has two orientation types:

  • Horizontal - the fill increases from left to right.
  • Vertical - the fill increases from top to bottom.

The orientation property is responsible for the orinetation of the element:

<smart-progress-bar value="25" orientation="vertical"></smart-progress-bar>

Demo

Behavior

By default the progress bar is used to visually display the progress of a process using it's fill. However the element allows numeric indication of the progress as well. This can be enabled by setting the showProgressValue property:

<smart-progress-bar show-progress-value value="54"></smart-progress-bar>

Demo

The progress indicator is placed in the middle of the progress bar and can be customized. The formatFunction property allows the user to control what text is displayed. Here's how to apply a custom formatting function:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../source/styles/smart.default.css" type="text/css" />
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.element.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.progressbar.js"></script>
 <script>
     window.onload = function () {
         var progressBar = document.querySelector('smart-progress-bar');
         progressBar.formatFunction = function (value) {
            return value + ' ' + 'oz';
         }
     }
 </script>
</head>
<body>
 <smart-progress-bar show-progress-value value="54"></smart-progress-bar>
</body>
</html>

Demo

The start and end value of the element can be reconfigured using the min and max property:

<smart-progress-bar value="54" min="20" max="70"></smart-progress-bar>
<smart-circular-progress-bar value="54" min="20" max="70"></smart-circular-progress-bar>

Demo

Progress bars are often used as loading indicators. For this purpose the user can set the indeterminate property and the progress bar will start an indeterminate animation which can be stopped any time by removing the attribute:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../source/styles/smart.default.css" type="text/css" />
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.element.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.progressbar.js"></script>
 <script>
     window.onload = function () {
         var progressBar = document.querySelector('smart-progress-bar');
         progressBar.indeterminate = false;
     }
 </script>
</head>
<body>
 <smart-progress-bar indeterminate></smart-progress-bar>
</body>
</html>

Demo

The user can also set the progress bar to indeterminate state by setting the value property to null.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
 <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../source/styles/smart.default.css" type="text/css" />
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.element.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="../../source/smart.progressbar.js"></script>
 <script>
     window.onload = function () {
         var progressBar = document.querySelector('smart-circular-progress-bar');
         progressBar.value = null;
     }
 </script>
</head>
<body>
 <smart-circular-progress-bar></smart-circular-progress-bar>
</body>
</html>

Demo

Styling

The progress bar is stylable through classes like the rest of the Smart custom elements. However it does have some specific CSS variables that are used as well:

  • --smart-progress-bar-default-width - used to set the default width of the Linear progress bar. Default is 200px.
  • --smart-progress-bar-default-height - used to set the default height of the Linear progress bar. Default is 30px.
  • --smart-circular-progress-bar-default-size - used to set the default width and height of the Circulcar progress bar. Default is 150px.
  • --smart-circular-progress-bar-fill-size - used to set the width of the fill of the Circular progress bar which is relative to the size of the inner container(the HTML container in the middle of the element). Default value is 20%.

Create, Append, Remove, Get/Set Property, Invoke Method, Bind to Event


Create a new element:
	const progressbar = document.createElement('smart-progress-bar');
	

Append it to the DOM:
	document.body.appendChild(progressbar);
	

Remove it from the DOM:
	progressbar.parentNode.removeChild(progressbar);
	

Set a property:
	progressbar.propertyName = propertyValue;
	

Get a property value:
	const propertyValue = progressbar.propertyName;
	

Invoke a method:
	progressbar.methodName(argument1, argument2);
	

Add Event Listener:
	const eventHandler = (event) => {
	   // your code here.
	};

	progressbar.addEventListener(eventName, eventHandler);
	

Remove Event Listener:
	progressbar.removeEventListener(eventName, eventHandler, true);
	

Using with Typescript

Smart Web Components package includes TypeScript definitions which enables strongly-typed access to the Smart UI Components and their configuration.

Inside the download package, the typescript directory contains .d.ts file for each web component and a smart.elements.d.ts typescript definitions file for all web components. Copy the typescript definitions file to your project and in your TypeScript file add a reference to smart.elements.d.ts

Getting Started with Angular ProgressBar Component

Setup Angular Environment

Angular provides the easiest way to set angular CLI projects using Angular CLI tool.

Install the CLI application globally to your machine.

npm install -g @angular/cli

Create a new Application

ng new smart-angular-progressbar

Navigate to the created project folder

cd smart-angular-progressbar

Setup the ProgressBar

Smart UI for Angular is distributed as smart-webcomponents-angular NPM package

  1. Download and install the package.
    npm install smart-webcomponents-angular
  2. Once installed, import the ProgressBarModule in your application root or feature module.

    app.module.ts

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    
    import { ProgressBarModule } from 'smart-webcomponents-angular/progressbar';
    
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    
    @NgModule({
        declarations: [ AppComponent ],
        imports: [ BrowserModule, ProgressBarModule ],
        bootstrap: [ AppComponent ],
    	entryComponents: [ AppComponent ]
    })
    
    export class AppModule { }
    	

  3. Adding CSS reference

    The following CSS file is available in ../node_modules/smart-webcomponents-angular/ package folder. This can be referenced in [src/styles.css] using following code.

    	@import 'smart-webcomponents-angular/source/styles/smart.default.css';

    Another way to achieve the same is to edit the angular.json file and in the styles add the style.

    	"styles": [
    		"node_modules/smart-webcomponents-angular/source/styles/smart.default.css"
    	]
    	
  4. Example


    app.component.html

     
    <smart-progress-bar #progressbar id="progressbar1" [value]="50"></smart-progress-bar>
    <smart-progress-bar #progressbar2 id="progressbar2" [orientation]="'vertical'" [value]="50"></smart-progress-bar>
    <smart-circular-progress-bar id="progressbar3" [value]="50"></smart-circular-progress-bar>
    		

    app.component.ts

     
    import { Component, ViewChild, OnInit, AfterViewInit } from '@angular/core';
    import { ProgressBarComponent } from 'smart-webcomponents-angular/progressbar';
    
    
    @Component({
        selector: 'app-root',
        templateUrl: './app.component.html',
    	styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
    })
    
    export class AppComponent implements AfterViewInit, OnInit {	
    	@ViewChild('progressbar', { read: ProgressBarComponent, static: false }) progressbar: ProgressBarComponent;
    	@ViewChild('progressbar2', { read: ProgressBarComponent, static: false }) progressbar2: ProgressBarComponent;
    	
     
    	ngOnInit(): void {
    		// onInit code.
    	}
    
    	ngAfterViewInit(): void {
    		// afterViewInit code.
    		this.init();
        }
    		
    	init(): void {
    		// init code.
    	    
    
    	}	
    }
    		

    app.module.ts

     
    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    
    import { ProgressBarModule } from 'smart-webcomponents-angular/progressbar';
    
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    
    @NgModule({
        declarations: [ AppComponent ],
        imports: [ BrowserModule, ProgressBarModule ],
        bootstrap: [ AppComponent ],
    	entryComponents: [ AppComponent ]
    })
    
    export class AppModule { }
    		


Running the Angular application

After completing the steps required to render a ProgressBar, run the following command to display the output in your web browser

ng serve
and open localhost:4200 in your favorite web browser.

Getting Started with React ProgressBar Component

Setup React Environment

The easiest way to start with React is to use create-react-app. To scaffold your project structure, follow the installation instructions.

	npm install -g create-react-app
	create-react-app my-app
	cd my-app
	npm start
	

Preparation

Open src/App.js andsrc/App.css

  1. Remove everything inside the App div tag in src/App.js:
    <div className="App"> </div>
  2. Remove the logo.svg import
  3. Remove the contents of src/App.css
  4. Remove src/logo.svg

Setup the ProgressBar

Smart UI for React is distributed as smart-webcomponents-react NPM package

  1. Download and install the package.
    npm install smart-webcomponents-react
  2. Once installed, import the React ProgressBar Component and CSS files in your application and render it app.js

    import 'smart-webcomponents-react/source/styles/smart.default.css';
    import React from "react";
    import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
    import { ProgressBar, CircularProgressBar } from 'smart-webcomponents-react/progressbar';
    
    class App extends React.Component {
    	render() {
    		return (
    			<div>
    			    <ProgressBar ref="progressbar" id="progressbar1" value={50}></ProgressBar>
    			    <ProgressBar ref="progressbar2" id="progressbar2" orientation="vertical"
    			    value={50}></ProgressBar>
    			    <CircularProgressBar id="progressbar3" value={50}></CircularProgressBar>
    			</div>
    		);
    	}
    }
    
    ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.querySelector("#root"));
    
    export default App;
    	

Running the React application

Start the app with
npm start
and open localhost:3000 in your favorite web browser to see the output.

Getting Started with Vue ProgressBar Component


Setup Vue Environment

We will use vue-cli to get started. Let's install vue-cli

	npm install -g @vue/cli
	

Then we can start creating our Vue.js projects with:

	vue create my-project
	

Setup the ProgressBar

  1. Open the "my-project" folder and run:

    npm install smart-webcomponents

  2. Ignored Elements

    Make Vue ignore custom elements defined outside of Vue (e.g., using the Web Components APIs). Otherwise, it will throw a warning about an Unknown custom element, assuming that you forgot to register a global component or misspelled a component name.

    Open src/main.js in your favorite text editor and change its contents to the following:

    import Vue from 'vue'
    	import App from './App.vue'
    
    	Vue.config.productionTip = false
    	Vue.config.ignoredElements = [
    	  'smart-progress-bar'
    	]
    
    	new Vue({
    	  render: h => h(App),
    	}).$mount('#app')
  3. Open src/App.vue in your favorite text editor and change its contents to the following:

    App.vue

    <template>  
    	  <smart-progress-bar id="progressbar"></smart-progress-bar>  
    	 </template>   
    	 <script>  
    	 import "smart-webcomponents/source/styles/smart.default.css";  
    	 import 'smart-webcomponents/source/modules/smart.progressbar.js';  
    	 export default {  
    	  name: "app",  
    	  mounted: function() {  
    	   window.Smart(  
    		"#progressbar", class {  
    		 get properties() {  
    			return  { value: 50 } 
    		 }  
    		}  
    	   );  
    	  }  
    	 };  
    	 </script>  
    	 <style>  
    	  body {  
    	   min-height: 700px;  
    	  }  
    	 </style>  
    	
    We can now use the smart-progress-bar with Vue. Data binding and event handlers will just work right out of the box.
    We have bound the properties of the smart-progress-bar to values in our Vue component.

Running the Vue application

Start the app with
npm run serve
and open localhost:8080 in your favorite web browser to see the output below:
