Indicators Overview

The Indicators are used to decorate other elements or components, creating a visual indication for current status, on-going process or state change.

The Indicators Package is part of Kendo UI for Angular, a professional grade UI library with 100+ components for building modern and feature-rich applications. To try it out sign up for a free 30-day trial.

Either use the quick setup (Angular CLI) or manually add the package.

Quick Setup with Angular CLI

Angular CLI supports the addition of packages through the ng add command which executes in one step the set of otherwise individually needed commands.

    ng add @progress/kendo-angular-indicators

Manual Setup

All components that you reference during the installation will be present in the final bundle of your application. To avoid ending up with components you do not actually need, either:

  • Import all Indicator components at once by using the IndicatorsModule, or
  • Import a specific Indicators component by adding it as an individual NgModule.
  1. Download and install the package.

       npm install --save @progress/kendo-angular-indicators @progress/kendo-angular-l10n @progress/kendo-angular-common @progress/kendo-licensing
  2. Once installed, import the NgModule of the components you need.

    To get all package components, import the IndicatorsModule in your application root or feature module.

        import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
        import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
        import { IndicatorsModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-indicators';
        import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
            bootstrap:    [AppComponent],
            declarations: [AppComponent],
            imports:      [BrowserModule, IndicatorsModule]
        export class AppModule {

    The package also exports the following modules for individual components:

    • BadgeModule
    • LoaderModule
    • SkeletonModule

    To reduce the size of your application, import only the modules you need.

        import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
        import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
        import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
        // Imports the Badge
        import { BadgeModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-indicators';
        // Imports the Loader
        import { LoaderModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-indicators';
        // Imports the Skeleton
        import { SkeletonModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-indicators';
            bootstrap: [AppComponent],
            declarations: [AppComponent],
            imports: [BrowserModule, BadgeModule, LoaderModule, SkeletonModule]
        export class AppModule {}
  3. You are required to install one of the Kendo UI themes for Angular to style your components. For more information on how to add the styles, refer to the section on styling.

  4. Follow the instructions on the Kendo UI for Angular My License page to activate your license. You can skip this step if your application already contains a Kendo UI license file.


The Indicators requires you to install the following peer dependencies in your application:

  • @angular/common
  • @angular/core
  • @progress/kendo-angular-l10n
  • @progress/kendo-angular-common
  • @progress/kendo-licensing
  • rxjs

The Indicators package utilizes the Angular animation system, which supports a specific set of browsers.
