Showing indeterminate progress:


JGProgressHUD *HUD = [[JGProgressHUD alloc] init];
HUD.textLabel.text = @"Loading";
[HUD showInView:self.view];
[HUD dismissAfterDelay:3.0];


let hud = JGProgressHUD()
hud.textLabel.text = "Loading"
hud.show(in: self.view)
hud.dismiss(afterDelay: 3.0)

This displays a dark HUD with an activity indicator and the title "Loading". The HUD is presented with a fade animation and is dismissed after 3 seconds with a fade animation.

Showing an error message:

JGProgressHUD *HUD = [[JGProgressHUD alloc] init];
HUD.textLabel.text = @"Error";
HUD.indicatorView = [[JGProgressHUDErrorIndicatorView alloc] init]; //JGProgressHUDSuccessIndicatorView is also available
[HUD showInView:self.view];
[HUD dismissAfterDelay:3.0];

Showing determinate progress:

JGProgressHUD *HUD = [[JGProgressHUD alloc] init];
HUD.indicatorView = [[JGProgressHUDPieIndicatorView alloc] init]; //Or JGProgressHUDRingIndicatorView
HUD.progress = 0.5f;
[HUD showInView:self.view];
[HUD dismissAfterDelay:3.0];

For more examples, including in Swift, see Examples.

Important: You should always show JGProgressHUD in a UIViewController view.



JGProgressHUD can be displayed in 3 styles:

  • Extra Light
  • Light
  • Dark

The style can also be set automatically according to the current UITraitCollection (dark mode). Use the initializer [[JGProgressHUD alloc] init]/JGProgressHUD() to take advantage of the automatic style.

Indicator Views:

By default a HUD will display an indeterminate progress indicator. The indicator view can be completely hidden by setting the indicatorView property to nil. These indicator views are available by default:

  • Indeterminate progress indicator
  • Pie progress indicator
  • Ring progress indicator
  • Success indicator
  • Error indicator
  • Image indicator

Custom indicator views can be created by subclassing JGProgressHUDIndicatorView.


By default a HUD will use a fade animation. Several parameters can be altered such as animation duration or animation curve. A HUD can be displayed without animation and different animations can be used. These animations are available by default:

  • Fade
  • Zoom and Fade

Custom animations can be created by subclassing JGProgressHUDAnimation.

To dim the content behind the HUD set your dim color as backgroundColor of your JGProgressHUD instance.


Swift Package Manager:

In Xcode, use the menu File > Swift Packages > Add Package Dependency... and enter the package URL https://github.com/JonasGessner/JGProgressHUD.git.
