Adding Progress Bars to Web Pages

In Web Flows Builder, go to the first Web Page of your Web Flow, click on the + icon on the toolbar and search for the Progress Bar Web Control. The Progress Bar will be displayed showing three steps by default:

In the General tab of the Inspector, under Control Properties, the following properties are set:

Value: the step the current Web Page is in.
Steps: the number of steps this Progress Bar has.
ProgressLabels: the labels shown by default to identify the progress.
