This is a simple class to display a gradient fill progress control. It works just like the normal
progress control. The main enhancements are that you can define the start and end colors and toggle
the percentage caption's visibility. It supports both horizontal and vertical progress control styles.
The sample application shows both types of controls on a single dialog-based application.
The control can be incorporated into a project like any other
control. Either create the control manually, subclass an existing
CProgressCtrl, or use
the ClassWizard to DDX_control it. The actual code for the progress control is located in
GradientProgressCtrl.cpp. Most of the work
happens in the
DrawGradient(...) function, which also uses Keith Rule's
class. The sample project also uses Chris Maunder's
ColourPicker. Both of these classes
are included in the sample project and can be downloaded elsewhere at this site.
It is derived from
CProgressCtrl so all standard
are available. Additional functions are listed below.
Please let me know of any problems or improvements. Thanks and good luck.
