<title>progress Element: HTML5</title>
<link href="myStyle.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

<form>
<label>Progress: </label>
 <progress value="50" max="100">50%</progress>
</form>
 
</body>
</html>

Here we have a progress element, with 100 as max and 50 as it’s value. This way, the progress bar indicates that the progress is 50% complete. Also there is a text between the progress tag, which is used as a fall back text for browsers which do not yet support progress element of HTML5.

CSS file associated with this is same as present at pattern and title Attribute of Form Field: HTML5

Change the number present in value and max attribute and look at the visual effect/indication of the progress on the browser.

Note: In real time application development, you could fetch the numbers for value and max attribute dynamically using JavaScript. This way, the effects will be real and it creates the illusion that the progress is being made!
