Progress Bar - Basic Question

P: n/a
I have a couple of progress bars that indicate the progress of a
math-intensive application. They are working well. The only problem is
that the progress indicator is gray in color.

Is it possible to change the color of the bars - they're usually blue in
other applications? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm using
VB.Net Standard, 2003.

I am curious what Windows version you are using. Are progressbars in other
applications on the same machine filled with blue color?

I'm working on two different computers - one with XP 2002 - Home and one
with XP Professional 2002, SP2.

I'm pretty sure I've seen blue progress bars in other applications.

I'm showing the progress bars in modal form (called with ShowDialog) and the
bars respond to events in my "Analysis" class.

Note that the color will depend on the system's color settings -- when using
the silver theme, the progressbar will be filled with a gray color.

That is probably it - I guess it was a silly question.

Thanks.
