Progress Overview

The Fluid Progress component provides a usable and accessible linear progress display for use on its own or with other Fluid components. It was originally designed for the Fluid Uploader but was built to be highly flexible -- customizable for use in any context. It has a very simple API but achieves its flexibility through a number of configuration options which at first may not seem intuitive.

Fluid Progress does not currently come with a default presentation. We hope that through our design examples you can come up with your own designs that integrate well with your application or component. Fluid Progress is currently used in the Uploader and in the Fluid Project wiki to provide component progress indicators.

New in v1.3

The Progress component now provides the option to the integrator to switch between aria-valuenow and aria-valuetext. See the fluid:Options description below for more information.

The Progress component now fires events when progress begins and hides.

Creating a Progress bar

To instantiate a new Progress component on your page:

var myProgressBar = fluid.progress(container, options);

Returns: The Progress component object.

Note: the initial state of a progress element is assumed to be hidden with the minimum amount of progress.

Parameters

container: a CSS-based selector, single-element jQuery object, or DOM element that identifies the root DOM node of the Progress markup.

options: an optional data structure that configures the Progress component, as described in the fluid:Options section of this page.


Supported Events

The Progress component fires the following events (for more information about events in the Fluid Framework, see Events for Component Users):

Event

Type

Description

Parameters

Parameter Description

New in v1.3:
onProgressBegin

default

This event fires once the progress display has appeared. Note that this is not a 'preventable' event.

none

 

New in v1.3:
afterProgressHidden

default

This event fires once the progress display has been removed after progress is complete.

none

 

To add listeners to the firers one can use two approaches:
1) Using the listeners option to the component creator function (see #Options below for more information):

//onProgressBegin:
var myProgress = fluid.progress("#progress-container", {
    listeners: {
        onProgressBegin: myProgressShow //callback function
    }              
}); 
//afterProgressHidden:
var myProgress = fluid.progress("#progress-container", {
    listeners: {
        afterProgressHidden: myProgressHide //callback function
    }              
});

2) Programmatically:

//onProgressBegin:
myProgress.events.onProgressBegin.addListener(myProgressShow); 
//afterProgressHidden:
myProgress.events.afterProgressHidden.addListener(myProgressHide); 

Methods

Method

Description

Parameters

show(animation)

Shows the element defined by the displayElement selector using either the default showAnimation object parameters or an animation passed in.

animation: see below the description of animate object used in the showAnimation option.

hide(delay, animation)

Hides the element defined by the displayElement selector using either the default hideAnimation object parameters or an animation passed in

delay: see below the description of the delay option
animation: see below the description of animate object used in the hideAnimation option

update(percentage, labelValue, animationForShow)

Updates the indicator element with a new percentage complete, updates the visible label, and ariaElement, shows the displayElement if it is currently hidden using either the default showAnimation object parameters or an animation passed in.

percentage: an integer value between 0 and 100 indicating the current progress (numbers greater than 100 are interpreted as 100)
labelValue: a string to display in the label element
animationForShow: see below the description of animate object used in the fluid:showAnimation option.

refreshView()

Resets the position and size of the indicator element based on the current size and position of the progressBar element.
Useful for liquid layouts or events that change the location or size of the progressBar.

none



Options

Name

Description

Values

Default

selectors

Javascript object containing selectors for various fragments of the Progress markup

The object must contain a subset of the following keys:
  displayElement
  progressBar
  indicator
  label
  ariaElement
See fluid:selectors below for requirement details

selectors: {
    displayElement: ".flc-progress",
    progressBar: ".flc-progress-bar",
    indicator: ".flc-progress-indicator",
    label: ".flc-progress-label",
    ariaElement: ".flc-progress-bar"
}

See #Selectors below for requirement details

strings

New in v1.3

The strings that will be used by the component. This is where localization is handled

ariaBusyText
String to inject into the ariaElement during update() while the percentage is less than 100%.
The %percentComplete token is replaced with a number indicating the current percent complete.
New in v1.3
If ariaBusyText is provided, the aria-valuetext attribute will be updated using this test. Otherwise, the value of the aria-valuenow attribute will be used for aria-valuetext.

ariaDoneText
String to inject into the ariaElement during update() when the percentage complete is 100%.

The object must contain a subset of the following keys:
  ariaBusyText
  ariaDoneText

strings: {
    ariaBusyText: "Progress is %percentComplete percent complete",
    ariaDoneText: "Progress is complete."
}

showAnimation

JavaScript object that defines the default animation for displaying the Progress displayElement.

The default showAnimation can be overridden at run-time by passing an animation object in with the progress.show() or progress.update() methods.

The structure of the object mirrors and gets mapped to the parameters of jQuery's animate method.

NOTE: The callback property is deprecated in v1.3

showAnimation: {
    params: {
        opacity: "show"
    },
    duration: "slow",
    callback: null  
}, // equivalent of $().fadeIn("slow")

hideAnimation

JavaScript object that defines the default animation for hiding the Progress displayElement.

The default hideAnimation can be overridden at run-time by passing an animation object in with the progress.hide() method.

The structure of the object mirrors and gets mapped to the parameters of jQuery's animate method.

NOTE: The callback property is deprecated in v1.3

hideAnimation: {
    params: {
        opacity: "hide"
    },
    duration: "slow",
    callback: null 
}, // equivalent of $().fadeOut("slow")

listeners

New in v1.3

JavaScript object containing listeners to be attached to the supported events.

Keys in the object are event names, values are functions or arrays of functions.

See #Supported Events for more information.

minWidth

Integer which specifies the minimum width for the progress indicator element

pixels

minWidth: 5

delay

delay before hiding the progress after the Progress.hide() method.

a delay allows the user to register the completion of progress before hiding the progress bar.

millies (milliseconds)

delay: 0

speed

Integer representing the speed for the Progress animations.

The default is very fast because you want the animation to keep up with the actual speed of the action.


speed: 200

animate

String indicating which directions of progress get animated.

In most cases you only want to animate forward. 

"forward", "backward", and "both". Any other value is interpreted to mean don't animate at all

animate: "forward"

initallyHidden

Boolean indicating whether to hide the displayElement when initializing Progress.

boolean

initiallyHidden: true

updatePosition

Deprecated:
Replaced by the refreshView() method

boolean

updatePosition: false

ariaBusyText

Moved in v1.3:
Moved into strings block

string

ariaBusyText: "Progress is %percentComplete percent complete"

ariaDoneText

Moved in v1.3:
Moved into strings block

string

ariaDoneText: "Progress is complete."

Selectors

Selectors are used to indicate which elements in DOM should behave as the different Progress elements.
The value for the option is itself a Javascript object containing name/value pairs:

selectors: {
    selector1Name: "selector 1 string",
    selector2Name: "selector 2 string",
      ...
}

Each selector has a default, as defined below.

Selector name

Description

Default                                        

displayElement

[fluid:required] the element that gets displayed when progress is displayed, could be the indicator or bar or some larger outer wrapper as in an overlay or dialog effect

".flc-progress"

progressBar

[fluid:required] The container for a file row progress bar.

".flc-progress-bar"

indicator

[fluid:required] The element that represents the "progressor" as it grows over time.

".flc-progress-indicator"

label

[fluid:optional] The container for the progress bar's label.

".flc-progress-label"

ariaElement

[fluid:required, except in the case where another element on the page carries the data required to present progress information to the screen reader, such as the case where there is a total progress indicator, and a sub-total progress indicator]

".flc-progress-bar"

Any selectors not provided as an option will revert to the default. Implementers may choose to use the default class names in their markup, or customize the selectors, or a combination of these two approaches.

Example using default selectors:

selectors: {
    displayElement: ".flc-progress",
    progressBar: ".flc-progress-bar",
    indicator: ".flc-progress-indicator",
    label: ".flc-progress-label",
    ariaElement: ".flc-progress-bar"
}

 

 
 

Example mixing up the selectors a bit for a different effect:

selectors: {
    displayElement: ".flc-progress-indicator",
    progressBar: ".flc-progress",
    indicator: ".flc-progress-indicator",
    label: ".flc-progress-label",
    ariaElement: ".flc-progress"
},
