Wikipedia: Progress bar
A progress bar is a graphical control element used to visualize the progression of an extended computer operation, such as a download, file transfer, or installation. Sometimes, the graphic is accompanied by a textual representation of the progress in a percent format. The concept can also be regarded to include “playback bars” in media players that keep track of the current location in the duration of a media file.
