The Progress Bar Field

The "Progress Bar" custom field gives you the ability to display a progress bar just by filling a percentage.

Field Settings

The "Progress Bar" custom field provides you the way to set the percentage of the Progress Bar which will be displayed at your frontend.


As you can see from the screenshot above, after choosing the correct Type, you can set the height, background color, stripes, animation, rounded corners, shadow and progress bar label.

Let's see what each option does.
