How to: Create a ProgressBar
Typically ProgressBar controls are used to indicate to the user that a lengthy operation is happening and is not hung. Often ProgressBar controls are implemented inside StatusBar controls. This example implements a ProgressBar inside a StatusBar. The StatusBar is created in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) and the ProgressBar in C#. The following example shows how to create the ProgressBar and simulate the progress of an operation using animation.
<StatusBar Name="sbar" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="5" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" Background="Beige" > <StatusBarItem> <TextBlock>StatusBar</TextBlock> </StatusBarItem> </StatusBar>
ProgressBar progbar = new ProgressBar(); progbar.IsIndeterminate = false; progbar.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal; progbar.Width = 150; progbar.Height = 15; Duration duration = new Duration(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10)); DoubleAnimation doubleanimation = new DoubleAnimation(100.0, duration); progbar.BeginAnimation(ProgressBar.ValueProperty, doubleanimation); sbar.Items.Add(progbar);
