Go Go Google Gadget Progress Bar

Look I made a progress bar. This is a proper Google Gadget one which needs some improvement but certainly works.

Trouble is I was getting an attack of the creeping features - I kept thinking how I could make it better. Anyway in its current form you put in the title, the target number and the number you've reached and it displays using a variety of styles and selectable colours.


I haven't made it publicly available as yet. But I may...

What's on the turntable? "Hejira" by Joni Mitchell from "Hejira"

Ooh that is good. Will be good to have the target and actual numbers, rather than having to calculate the percentage yourself. (Although I do get to make a progress spreadsheet for that :-) )

Good work, bloody hard stuff to do. However, if you don't fancy putting up the code, try a link to this knitting site instead. Easy to follow instructions for installing a Javascript progress bar widget.
