Percent complete selector, for use in TWiki forms and TWiki applications


This TWiki plugin package adds a percent complete selector to TWiki forms and TWiki applications. The percentage can be set by clicking on the indicator bar, or by picking a value from the pick list. Percent values are in range 0% to 100%, and rounded to nearest 10% if needed.

Use Percent Selector in TWikiForms

This package adds a percent type to TWikiForms:

Type Description Size Value
percent screenshot-small Percent complete indicator and pick list. The percentage can be set by clicking on the percent complete indicator bar, or by picking a value from the pick list. N/A Initial (default) percentage value

Example form definition:

Name: Type: Size Values: Tooltip message:
Progress percent     Select percent complete

Use Percent Selector in HTML Forms

You can also use the percent complete selector directly in your HTML forms, without having to write any code. Just include this in the topic text:

<form action="...">
%PERCENTCOMPLETE{ name="Progress" value="60" }%
This will show an HTML selector named "Progress" and a percent complete indicator bar tied to it.

Parameter Description Default Example
name Name of selector (required) name="Progress"
value Initial value, range 0 to 100. "0" value="70"

Test: (this only works if the PercentCompletePlugin is installed and enabled)
