This post will not talk about creating an application and installing the Primeng framework into the angular application.

The below code works on Angular 10/ Angular 11/Angular 12 versions. The latest Primeng Version is preferable.

Import ProgressBar Module into Application

This framework provides every component in the form of an angular module.

To use this component, Import ProgressBarModule in the application module.

import { BrowserModule } from "@angular/platform-browser";
import { NgModule, CUSTOM_ELEMENTS_SCHEMA } from "@angular/core";
import { AppComponent } from "./app.component";
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from "@angular/platform-browser/animations";
import { ProgressBarModule } from "primeng/progressbar";
import { GrowlModule } from "primeng/growl";

  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [
    ProgressBarModule, // Progress Bar support
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
export class AppModule {}

How to add Dynamic Progress bar in Angular Application using primeng

The progress bar status is changing dynamically. For example, Emit values for every 100 milliseconds from 1 to 100 values. Generate the Timer using rxjs Interval operations Emit the values from 1 to 100 using take rxjs Operators. the emit values are subscribed and binding to a progress bar


import { Component, OnInit } from "@angular/core";
import { Message, MessageService } from "primeng/api";
import { interval, Subscription } from "rxjs";
import { take } from "rxjs/operators";

  selector: "app-root",
  templateUrl: "./app.component.html",
  styleUrls: ["./app.component.css"],
export class AppComponent implements OnInit {
  outputMsg: Message[];

  statusNum: number = 0;
  subscription$: Subscription;

  constructor() {}
  ngOnInit() {
    const interval$ = interval(10);
    const timer = interval$.pipe(take(100));
    this.subscription$ = timer.subscribe(
      (val) => {
        this.statusNum = val + 1;
      () => {},
      () =>
        (this.outputMsg = [
          { severity: "success", summary: "Success", detail: "Tasks Done" },

Html Template Changes:

<div style="text-align:center">
  <h1>Primeng Angular ProgressBar Component Example</h1>
<p-growl [value]="outputMsg"></p-growl>

<div style="text-align:center">
  <p-progressBar [value]="statusNum"></p-progressBar>

And output is

How to show an indeterminate progress bar in the Angular app

There are two types of modes of progress bars we can configure. modes:- indeterminate or determinate

indeterminate This shows a progress bar of an operation continuously, i.e indeterminate times. For example, Loading One lacks records from Excel to Database. It shows the status bar continuously until the data is completely loaded. Once data is finished loading, It will not show the status bar.

determinate It shows the estimated status of the operation over a total operation status. For example, if two loads lack records, It shows the progress like 10% status to the end-user if 10000 records are loaded. It will show the status until it reaches 100%.

  [style]="{'height': '20px'}"

and output is
