HTML tags | progress

It is used to show the progress in the completion of a task, usually shown as a progress bar.

Supports two attributes: max to indicate how much the task requires to complete and value to indicate how much of the task has already been completed. Both are optional and their value is a float.

max defaults to 1 and must be greater than 0, while value must be between 0 and max or between 0 and 1 if max is not defined. In case of no value, <progress> takes an indeterminate value and is accessible by CSS with the pseudo-class :indeterminate.

For better accessibility it should be used with an associated tag using for-id.

  • Type: block
  • Self-closing: No
  • Semantic value: No
