How to get a way to make a Progress bar

Hi everyone,


I am working on a proof of concept and the client would like to have a progress bar that shows the completion of a task.


Do you guys have a way to make it ?


Kind regards,

I just used regular old stacked bar chart with 2 values, one the percent complete (blue portion) and the other a measure which is 1 minus the percent complete (the grey portion).  I chose the grey color as the font for the data labels as well so only the portion completed is visible. It works and is free. Here's screen snip of it next to a table.
