  • You can use the Progress Bar to display percentage values by incrementing values in a bar and to show the current progress of a task flow.

    How to use the Progress Bar UI Pattern

    1. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for Progress Bar.

      The Progress Bar widget is displayed.

      If the UI widget does not display, it may be because you used a ready-made app, which deletes unused widgets from the module. To make additional widgets available in your app:

      a. Go to Module > Manage dependencies.

      b. Search for and select the relevant Producer, for example OutSystemsUI. Ensure Show All is selected.

      c. On the Public elements for the selected Producer displayed on the right, ensure Show All is selected.

      d. Search for and select the element you want to add, and click Apply.

      e. In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for the widget again.

    2. From the Toolbox, drag the Progress Bar widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.

    3. On the Properties tab, in the Progress property, enter the progress percentage. In this example we enter 55 but you can also use functions or local variables.

    4. Add the text you want to appear as the Progress Bar title. In this example, we add On Going.

    5. On the Properties tab, you can customize Progress Bar's look and feel by setting any of the optional properties, for example, the shape, color, and size of the Progress Bar.

    After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.

    • Blank - The progress bar color is the color you chose when creating the app (default value).

    Shape (Shape Identifier): Optional Set the Progress Bar shape. The predefined options are:
