This is just a code-snippet with which you can easily
display a netscape-like progressbar in your windows-statusbar. It has 2
(determined by value of the control)
- -1 = Animated Status, when remaining time is not calculateable
- 0-100 = Normal Status displaying
How does it work?
It adds its own panel to your statusbar at runtime and
handles all drawing in its own class.
The idea is based on Matthew Hazlett
Using the code
Dim progress1 As ProgressStatus
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object,
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
progress1 = New ProgressStatus(StatusBar1)
.Style = StatusBarPanelStyle.OwnerDraw
.MinWidth = 200
.BorderStyle = StatusBarPanelBorderStyle.Raised
You can change the value and the animation speed like following:
progress1.progress = 53
progress1.progress = -1
Points of Interest
No flickering, because the panel adds its own picturebox and draw then to it!
