Python | Progressbar widget in kivy using .kv file

Kivy is a platform-independent GUI tool in Python. As it can be run on Android, IOS, linux and Windows etc. It is basically used to develop the Android application, but it does not mean that it can not be used on Desktops applications.

Progressbar Widget:

ProgressBar widget is used to visualize the progress of some task. Only the horizontal mode is currently supported: the vertical mode is not yet available. The progress bar has no interactive elements and is a display-only widget.

To work with the progressbar widget you must have to import it by the command:



from kivy.uix.progressbar import ProgressBar

The progress bar take takes two arguments:
1) max: Maximum value allowed for value. It is a Numericproperty and defaults to 100.
2) value: Current Value for the slider

Basic Approach:

1) import kivy
2) import kivyApp
3) import progressbar
4) import Boxlayout(according to need)
5) Set minimum version(optional)
6) Create Layout class:
7) Create App class
8) Create .kv file:
         1) Add progress bar
         2) Add label
         3) Add canvas if you want as i did
8) return Layout/widget/Class(according to requirement)
9) Run an instance of the class

Implementation of the Approach:
