I'm looking to get a name for all off the different parts of a progressbar.


Loading [ =====>   ] 1/20 (5%) done

I want to know what name can be given to the following parts:

"Loading" label?

"[ ]" the body?

"===" progress line?

">" progress header

"1/20" Value

"(5%)" Percentage label?

"done" suffix/trailer?

Thank you

  • Are you trying to communicate these terms with the user, or just constructing a way to talk about it on your own/with developers or designers? Oct 5, 2018 at 21:20
  • @maxathousand I am making a progressbar API and I want to describe the various parts that can be customized.
