#percent { position:absolute; display:inline-block; top:3px; left:48%; }

Step 3 : create php upload file for create upload folder(directory) where to upload file in location

	 //You can validate the file type, size here. I left the code for you 
	 if ($_FILES["file"]["error"] > 0) 
	   echo "Error: " . $_FILES["file"]["error"]; 
	  move_uploaded_file($_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"],'upload/'. $_FILES["file"]["name"]);   
	  echo "Uploaded File :".$_FILES["file"]["name"]; 


Step 4: Create JavaScript function for  progress bar option.

	//Enable Upload button
	//Show the progress bat after upload button hit
	//We can even provide options to ajaxForm to get callbacks like success,error, uploadProgress and beforeSend
    var options = {
	//beforeSend : this function called before form submission
    beforeSend: function()
        //clear everything
	//uploadProgress : this function called when the upload is in progress
    uploadProgress: function(event, position, total, percentComplete)

	//success : this function is called when the form upload is successful.
    success: function()

	//complete: this function is called when the form upload is completed.
    complete: function(response)
        $("#message").html("<font color='green'>"+response.responseText+"</font>");
    error: function()
        $("#message").html("<font color='red'> ERROR: unable to upload files</font>");


	////where myForm is the form id
