This example shows three progress bars in red, green and blue colors. Using the input boxes, you can edit the current progress value. Animations are enabled, whenever the progress value changed the progress bar shows value changes with animation.

If a new value is smaller then the current one, the progress bar will also show the old value in dimmed color, accompanied with animation to the new value after small delay.

How to Use IntegralUI ProgressBar in Angular

To use the ProgressBar component you need to do the following:

  • In app template place the progress bar component using the iui-progressbar tag name
  • Set values for different properties available
  • To connect to the component progress value use the ngModel or value property
<div class="app-block" #application>
    <iui-progressbar [allowAnimation]="true" [controlStyle]="ctrlStyleRed" [(ngModel)]="ctrlValueRed"></iui-progressbar> <div class="prb-ovw-block"><span>Red: </span> <input type="number" [(ngModel)]="ctrlValueRed" min="0" max="100" /></div><br/>
    <iui-progressbar [allowAnimation]="true" [controlStyle]="ctrlStyleGreen" [(ngModel)]="ctrlValueGreen"></iui-progressbar> <div class="prb-ovw-block"><span>Green: </span> <input type="number" [(ngModel)]="ctrlValueGreen" min="0" max="100" /></div><br/>
    <iui-progressbar [allowAnimation]="true" [controlStyle]="ctrlStyleBlue" [(ngModel)]="ctrlValueBlue"></iui-progressbar> <div class="prb-ovw-block"><span>Blue: </span> <input type="number" [(ngModel)]="ctrlValueBlue" min="0" max="100" /></div>

By default, the progress indictor is a solid color, but you can change it by providing a custom image as a background. This is done through CSS. For example, to show the progress in blocks, you can use an image that has a transparent vertical line at the end. This when applied as the background to the progress bar, will show the indicator in blocks.

You can also change orientation of the ProgressBar to: horizontal or vertical. In horizontal orientation, the progress value increases from left to right, while in vertical orientation it increases from bottom to up direction.

ProgressBar component is also usable as part of other components, like an editor. Here is an example of a Grid with Progress Bar as Editor.

You can also use the progress bar component in Angular Forms.

How to Customize the Progress Bar Appearance

Several built-in CSS classes control the appearance of the ProgressBar component. By default, in angular components you can't change the CSS styles outside of the component, they are closed. However, if you set the ViewEncapsulation attribute to None in your app component, you can alter these classes directly, or using the controlStyle property.

Note If you don't want to modify the ViewEncapsulation, you can still change the component appearance by providing your own CSS style sheet a include it as part of the angular.json file under style section.

In this example, we are using the first approach that is setting the ViewEncapsulation to None and providing an object to the controlStyle property in code. This property accepts an object has two sections: general and content, where you can set the names of all custom CSS classes applied to different component states.

import { Component, ViewEncapsulation } from '@angular/core';

    selector: 'iui-app',
    templateUrl: './app.component.html',
    styleUrls: ['./app.component.css'],
    encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.None
export class AppComponent {

    public ctrlStyleRed: any = {
        general: { normal: 'prb-ovw' },
        content: { normal: 'prb-ovw-content prb-ovw-content-red' }

    // . . .

<iui-progressbar [allowAnimation]="true" [controlStyle]="ctrlStyleRed" [(ngModel)]="ctrlValueRed"></iui-progressbar>
    background: #efefef;
    border: 0;
    border-radius: 15px;
    display: inline-block;
    margin: 10px 15px 10px 0;
    padding: 0;
    vertical-align: middle;
    width: 300px;
    border-radius: 15px;
    height: 12px;
    background: #c60d0d;

In this example, only the normal state is overridden with custom CSS classes. Other component states (disabled, hovered, selected) will remain the same.
