Chapter 7. Progress Bars

In this chapter, we will cover the following recipes:

  • Displaying file upload progress
  • Animating progress changes
  • Creating progress indicator widgets
  • Using states to warn about thresholds
  • Giving progressbars labels

Introduction

The progressbar widget is quite simple—in that it doesn't have many moving parts. In fact, it has exactly one moving part, that is, the value bar. But simplicity doesn't make the progressbar any less powerful than other widgets. We'll look at how we can leverage this simplicity throughout this chapter. The progressbar can express anything from file upload progress to server-side processes to capacity utilization.
