Circular Progress Bar

In SQL Reporting Services, there's a circular green progress bar. Looks just
like the regular progress bar in the toolbar, except that it's a circle. It's
perfect for when a Win Form client needs to call a web service, and has no
way to know how long it will take.

Well, I'm calling my own web service from a WinForm client. It would be
really nice to have this or some other circular progress bar. I only see one
progress bar in the toolbox, and don't see a property to make that progress
bar circular.

Any ideas on how to easily get a circular progress bar?

Set the Style property to ProgressBarStyle.Continuous or Marquee

Easy as that.

Hi Randy,

Thank you for posting. From your post, my understanding on this issue is:
how to get a circular progress bar. If I'm off base, please feel free to
let me know.

A ToolStripProgressBar can be oriented horizontally. It can not be circular.

What you saw the circular green progress bar in SQL Reporting Services is
just a gif picture.

If you want to display the progress in a progress bar when you don't know
how long it will take, you could set the Style property of the progress bar
to Marquee.The Marquee style indicates progress by continuously scrolling a
block across a ProgressBar in a marquee fashion.

If you have any other concerns or need anything else, please feel free to
let me know.


Sincerely,
Linda Liu
