Variants #

Over background #

When a progress bar needs to be placed on top of a colored background, use the over background progres bar as signified by [over-background]. This progress bar uses a white opaque color no matter the background. Make sure the background offers enough contrast for the loader to be legible.

<div
style="width: var(--spectrum-global-dimension-size-3000); height: var(--spectrum-global-dimension-size-2000); display: flex; flex-direction: column; align-items: center; justify-content: space-around; background-color: var(--spectrum-alias-background-color-modal-overlay);"
>

<sp-progress-bar
label="Loaded a large amount"
progress="77"
over-background
>
</sp-progress-bar>
</div>

Indeterminate #

A progress bar can be either determinate or indeterminate as signified by [indeterminate]. By default, loaders are determinate. Use a determinate loader when progress can be calculated against a specific goal (e.g., downloading a file of a known size). Use an indeterminate loader when progress is happening but the time or effort to completion can’t be determined (e.g., attempting to reconnect to a server).

<div
style="width: var(--spectrum-global-dimension-size-3000); height: var(--spectrum-global-dimension-size-2000); display: flex; flex-direction: column; align-items: center; justify-content: space-around;"
>

<sp-progress-bar
aria-label="Loaded an unclear amount"
indeterminate
>
</sp-progress-bar>
</div>

The above sp-progress-bar also leverages the aria-label attribute in place of the label attribute in ensure that the element is labelled correctly without that label appearing visibly in the UI.

Side Label #

A progress bar can be delivered with its labeling displayed above its visual indicator or to either side. Use the boolean [side-label] attribute to define where this content should appear.

<div
style="width: var(--spectrum-global-dimension-size-3000); height: var(--spectrum-global-dimension-size-2000); display: flex; flex-direction: column; align-items: center; justify-content: space-around;"
>

<sp-progress-bar
side-label
indeterminate
label="Label Beside"
>
</sp-progress-bar>
</div>

Accessibility #

An sp-progress-bar element will register itself as a role="progressbar" element in the accessibility tree. Any value applied to the label attribute will be used both to visibly label the element and to set the aria-label attribute on the host. In cases where a visible label is not desired, be sure to include an aria-label attribute manually to ensure that the sp-progress-bar correctly fulfills its responsibilities to visitors of you site of all abilities.
