“People count up the faults of those who keep them waiting”
Seems like I kept them busy decoding this loading bar
Recently, while browsing I landed on a page on StackOverflow.com where people were discussing about how I implemented this loading bar on CSSJockey.com. I could sense a lot of confusion in the discussion so thought I would take the mystery out as I love to share best practices. Here’s how you can create a loading bar in few steps..
Things You’ll Need
- A nice loading image: If you are good in creating animated GIF images that’s nice, otherwise you can create a loading image with this cool Ajax Loading Gif Generator.
- jQuery: We are creating this loading bar using jQuery so download jQuery latest version here.
jQuery Code within <head>..</head> tags
HTML Code within <body>..</body>tags
Loading content, please wait..
<img src="loading.gif" alt="loading.." />
CSS Code for loading DIV
font:bold 11px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
Use your imagination and create something nice & unique.
