Changing the progressbar style

In other programming languages I've been able to easily change the style
of a progress bar between smooth and blocked. I find that is either
really hidden or impossible in .NET. Am I missing something?

I'm shocked that .NET doesn't have a style property for the progressbar
control!

You can reimplement the ProgressBar control and specify 'PBS_SMOOTH'
('ProgressBar' is 'sealed', so you cannot extend it).

I agree.

Here is a link to a code sample for a sweet progressbar, that fills
smoothly with gradient colors:
