Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public bool IsIndeterminate { get; set; }
<object IsIndeterminate="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
false if the ProgressBar shows actual values; true if the ProgressBar shows generic progress. The default is false.

Identifier field

IsIndeterminateProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

When this property is true, the ProgressBar animates a few bars moving across the ProgressBar in a continuous manner and ignores the Value property.

The following example sets the IsIndeterminate property to true to create a ProgressBar that shows generic progress.


ProgressBar progbar = new ProgressBar();
progbar.Background = Brushes.Gray;
progbar.Foreground = Brushes.Red;
progbar.Width = 150;
progbar.Height = 15;
progbar.IsIndeterminate = true;
