ProgressBar Control (Windows Forms)

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The Windows Forms ProgressBar control indicates the progress of an action by displaying an appropriate number of rectangles arranged in a horizontal bar. When the action is complete, the bar is filled. Progress bars are commonly used to give the user an idea of how long to wait for a protracted action to complete — for instance, when a large file is being loaded.
