ProgressBar Control (Windows Forms)
Thecontrol replaces and adds functionality to the control; however, the ProgressBar control is retained for both backward compatibility and future use, if you choose.

Progress bars are commonly used to give the user an indication of how long to wait for a protracted action to complete—for instance, when a large file is being loaded.
