JQuery Code

JQuery Code is given below, In this code we are increasing or animating the width of inner div using .animate() method of Jquery. The width of loading bar is calculated using .width() method with respect to the outer div.

$(document).ready(function() {
width: "100%"}, 
duration: 7000,
step: function() {
let width = $(this).width() / $('.inner').parent().width() * 100;
width = Math.ceil(width) + "%";
