   ' Create object references and initialize variables.
   Dim SBar As StatusBar
   Dim TList As TaskList
   Dim TItems As TaskItems
   Dim TI As TaskItem
   Dim count As Long
   Dim i As Long

   SBar = DTE.StatusBar
   ' Get references to Task List.
   TList = DTE.Windows().Item(Constants.vsWindowKindTaskList).Object
   TItems = TList.TaskItems
   i = 1
   count = TItems.Count
   ' Loop through Task List items, updating progress bar for each item.
   For Each TI In TItems
      SBar.Progress(True, TI.Description, i, count)
      SBar.SetLineColumnCharacter(i, count, 0)
      i = i + 1
      MsgBox("Task: " & i - 1 & vbCr & "Description: " & TI.Description & vbCr & "Next task item...")
   ' All done, so get rid of the bar.
