Progress Bar Modal Example


Message Main

Type: String
Default: “Processing…”

The main message displayed to the user.


Type: String
Default: “Please wait. Window will close when processing is complete.”

The secondary message provided to the user.


Type: Number

The total amount of iterations. This is the maximum value of the progress bar. The minimum of the progress bar is always set to 0.


Type: Number

The current iteration of the loop. This is the current position of the progress bar.


Type: String
Default: #0062FF

The color of the progress bar. This value can either be a HEX (e.g. #0062FF) or RGBA (e.g. rgba(0,98,255,1)) value strings.

Full Screen Override

Type: Boolean
Default: False

True displays the progress bar as a modal dialog preventing the user from interacting with the web application until the execution completes.

False moves the modal dialog to the .large-shell-left container to simulate the position of a standard workflow. This allows the user to interact with the web application while the processing occurs.

Modal Size

Type: Number

Sets the size of the modal dialog as a percentage of the display area. The minimum value is 50 (i.e. 50%). The maximum value is 90 (i.e. 90%). This requires the Full Screen Override to be True.

Time Remaining

Type: Number

The calculated time remaining, in milliseconds. This value is converted into the time remaining text below the progress bar. If the value is not provided, no time remaining text will be shown.

NOTE: As of 1/7/2019, if this value is left empty, “Calculating remaining time…” is displayed. This will be corrected to function as described.



Type: String

The result of the activity.




The activity’s ID, which is used in other activities to access the activity’s output. The ID must be unique across the entire workflow and it’s subworkflows – two activities cannot have the same ID.

You might want to change the ID to shorten it. Shorter IDs make expressions more compact.

Display Name


The activity’s name in Workflow Designer. The display name appears at the top of the activity on the design surface. The default display name for this activity is Progress Bar Modal.

You might want to change the display name to a name that describes what the activity does in the context of your workflow. Description names make workflows easier to understand and maintain.



A description of what the activity does. The description appears below the activity’s display name.

Use the description to record what the activity does in the context of the workflow. Descriptions make workflows easier to understand and maintain.
