Progress bar control in System tray

P: n/a
Hi

I've a windows application that does a lengthy backup process. While the
process is going on, I need to show a progress bar inside system tray or
just above the system tray. Can someone please guide me how to show the
progress bar out of the boundaries of the application form area and near the
system tray.

Regards

Hi John

This article does gives me a solution to show animation in the system tray.
I can animate a small bar filling from empty to full, but what I was looking
for is a complete progress bar i.e Progress bar control. I know this cannot
be accomodated in System tray, thats why I was planning to show the progress
bar on top of the System tray. Is there any way I can create and show the
built in Progress bar control at that location, while my original
application form is minimized or even hidden. Hope I could clear my point.

Regards
