Steps to create Multi Step Progress Bar in HTML CSS & JS

We will create this multistep progress bar in HTML CSS and JavaScript.

1. File Structure

In the initial step, we will create a new directory for our project. You can name it whatever you want, and inside this directory, create two files: index.html and style.css. These files will contain the necessary HTML and CSS code for the card slider.

2. Creating the Multi-Step Progress Bar

In the second step, we will create the layout and style the progress bar & buttons using HTML and CSS. In your index.html file, add the following HTML code to create the basic structure of the multi-step progress bar.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- Coding By CodingNepal | -->
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Multi Step Progress</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <!--<script src="script.js" defer></script>-->
    <div class="container">
      <div class="steps">
        <span class="circle active">1</span>
        <span class="circle">2</span>
        <span class="circle">3</span>
        <span class="circle">4</span>
        <div class="progress-bar">
          <span class="indicator"></span>
      <div class="buttons">
        <button id="prev" disabled>Prev</button>
        <button id="next">Next</button>

In your style.css file, add the following CSS code to style the multi-step progress bar. If you want, you can change the font, size, color, and background of the progress bar & buttons by slightly modifying this code.

/* Import Google font - Poppins */
@import url(";300;400;500;600;700&display=swap");
* {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  font-family: "Poppins", sans-serif;
body {
  height: 100vh;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  background: #f6f7fb;
.container {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: center;
  gap: 40px;
  max-width: 400px;
  width: 100%;
.container .steps {
  display: flex;
  width: 100%;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: space-between;
  position: relative;
.steps .circle {
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 50px;
  width: 50px;
  color: #999;
  font-size: 22px;
  font-weight: 500;
  border-radius: 50%;
  background: #fff;
  border: 4px solid #e0e0e0;
  transition: all 200ms ease;
  transition-delay: 0s;
.steps {
  transition-delay: 100ms;
  border-color: #4070f4;
  color: #4070f4;
.steps .progress-bar {
  position: absolute;
  height: 4px;
  width: 100%;
  background: #e0e0e0;
  z-index: -1;
.progress-bar .indicator {
  position: absolute;
  height: 100%;
  width: 0%;
  background: #4070f4;
  transition: all 300ms ease;
.container .buttons {
  display: flex;
  gap: 20px;
.buttons button {
  padding: 8px 25px;
  background: #4070f4;
  border: none;
  border-radius: 8px;
  color: #fff;
  font-size: 16px;
  font-weight: 400;
  cursor: pointer;
  box-shadow: 0 5px 10px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.05);
  transition: all 200ms linear;
.buttons button:active {
  transform: scale(0.97);
.buttons button:disabled {
  background: #87a5f8;
  cursor: not-allowed;

Finally, add the following JavaScript code to your script.js file to add functionality for creating a multi-step progress bar.

 //DOM Elements
const circles = document.querySelectorAll(".circle"),
  progressBar = document.querySelector(".indicator"),
  buttons = document.querySelectorAll("button");

let currentStep = 1;

// function that updates the current step and updates the DOM
const updateSteps = (e) => {
  // update current step based on the button clicked
  currentStep = === "next" ? ++currentStep : --currentStep;

  // loop through all circles and add/remove "active" class based on their index and current step
  circles.forEach((circle, index) => {
    circle.classList[`${index < currentStep ? "add" : "remove"}`]("active");

  // update progress bar width based on current step = `${((currentStep - 1) / (circles.length - 1)) * 100}%`;

  // check if current step is last step or first step and disable corresponding buttons
  if (currentStep === circles.length) {
    buttons[1].disabled = true;
  } else if (currentStep === 1) {
    buttons[0].disabled = true;
  } else {
    buttons.forEach((button) => (button.disabled = false));

// add click event listeners to all buttons
buttons.forEach((button) => {
  button.addEventListener("click", updateSteps);
