# datatable.options.progress.min_duration¶

This option controls the minimum duration of a task to show the progress bar.

## Parameters¶

return
float

Current min_duration value. Initially, this option is set to 0.5.

new_min_duration
float

New min_duration value. The progress bar will not be shown if the duration of an operation is smaller than new_min_duration. If this value is non-zero, then the progress bar will only be shown for long-running operations, whose duration (estimated or actual) exceeds this threshold.
