How are you setting it?  Should be just a simple case of setting the value with javascript.

Not really setting it with anything.  The only thing I have in css is progress { width: 100%; }

So, what value to set?

$("#progress-bar-id").val("0")

Not using jquery.  Here's what I'm using.  Basically, the progress bar is colored as the file is uploaded and when it's finished, I can't get the color back to it's original color.

<progress id="uploadprogress" min="0" max="100" value="0"></progress>
progress = document.getElementById('uploadprogress')
...
var complete = (event.loaded / event.total * 100 | 0);
progress.value = progress.innerHTML = complete;
...
progress.value = progress.innerHTML = 0;

Open in new window

Apparently, you can't reset the progress bar too soon.  I set a timer for a couple of seconds after the file had uploaded and then:

progress.value = progress.innerHTML = 0;

That worked.

It was the timer that made it work.  You can't reset too soon and no one mentioned that.
