Use the micro process flow if:
- You need to show the state of each step in a linear, multi-step process.
- Users need to see the progress of multiple items displayed in a list or table at a glance.
Do not use the micro process flow if:
The micro process flow is responsive and adapts to the size of its parent container. If the micro process flow is too long for the parent container’s width, you can choose how it should behave:
- Simple wrap: Steps that don’t fit into the width of the parent container wrap to a new line.
- Overflow: Navigation arrows appear on both sides of the micro process flow, with the number of hidden steps indicated next to each arrow. By clicking the navigation arrows, users can scroll horizontally through all of the steps in the micro process flow.
The micro process flow acts as a generic container in which process steps are laid out linearly along the horizontal axis. The control provides the following layout options:
Micro process flow with dependent steps (default)
A connector line appears between the process step and the step that follows it. Use this type when the completion of a step is a precondition for the subsequent step.
You can also indicate the state of the transition between two steps with a suitable icon.
