I have tried doing this but couldn't get it. Below is my code :
<script> 
    $(document).ready(function(){
        var $progressbar = $("#progressbar");
        $progressbar.show();
        $('#uploadForm').on('submit', function(e){
            e.preventDefault();
            $(function(){
                $progressbar.css('width', '30%');
            }); 
            $.ajax({
                url: "insertdata.php",
                type: "POST",
                data: new FormData(this),
                contentType: false,
                processData: false,
                success: function(data){
                    console.log(data);
                    if (data == 'T'){
                        $('#txtname').val("");
                        $('#txtsex').val("");
                        $('#txtage').val("");
                        $('#txterr').val('Record Inserted');
                        $progressbar.css('width', '100%');
                    }
                },
                error: function(data){
                alert("Something went wrong !");
            }
        });
    });
});
</script>

Open in new window


Code for Progress bar is as follows:
<div class="progress" style="margin-top:100px">
    <div class="progress-bar active" id="progressbar" role="progressbar" aria-valuenow="45" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100" style="width: 0%">
        <span class="sr-only">0% Complete</span>
    </div>
</div>

Open in new window


insertdata.php In this file, insertion of data is processed.

Here working of my code is something like this: when the user presses the "Submit" button, progress bar shows 30% increase and when the process finishes 30% moves to 100%.

What I want to achieve is : Progress Bar should show progress ( percent by percent ) with the insertion of data into database, after Submit button is pressed.

How to achieve this?

Please help

We have an article here at E-E that shows this exact application.
https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/14519/A-jQuery-Progress-Bar.html

In order for the progress bar to be meaningful (or maybe even visible at all) the server-side process would need to run long enough for client/server communication to take place.  Typically a database insert is completed in milliseconds, so you might not see anything if the process completes quickly.  The article deliberately delays the background process so that the progress bar can be visible.

Without jQuery plugin :
<script> 
    $(document).ready(function(){
        var $progressbar = $("#progressbar");
        $progressbar.show();
        var updateProgressBar = function(evt) {
            if(evt.lengthComputable) {
                var percent = (evt.loaded*100)/evt.total;
                $(function(){
                    $progressbar.css('width', percent.toFixed(1) + '%');
                }); 
            }
        }
        $('#uploadForm').on('submit', function(e){
            e.preventDefault();
            $.ajax({
                xhr: function() {
                    var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
                    req.upload.addEventListener("progress", updateProgressBar, false);
                    req.addEventListener("progress", updateProgressBar, false);
                    return req;
                },
                url: "insertdata.php",
                type: "POST",
                data: new FormData(this),
                contentType: false,
                processData: false,
                success: function(data){
                    console.log(data);
                    if (data == 'T'){
                        $('#txtname').val("");

                },
                error: function(data){

                });
