Progress Indicators: UI Text Guidelines
Progress indicators are non-interactive, visual cues that indicate that a process is underway.
- For progress bars, place static or dynamic status text. Make the status text short, informational messages (just an ing verb such as "Copying..."). Avoid being too granular; each status message should be displayed for a minimum of 3 seconds.
To indicate a continuing action, end the text with an ellipsis, as shown.
- For .avi files, do not use text, because it would have to be localized.
