Progressbar without animation

Hi. Is it possible to not have the progressbar animate? Not meaning how it goes from 0 to value, I like that, but on Windows, there is a light strip that constantly moves from left to right, and this is what I want to stop if possible. Not sure yet what it does on Mac but assuming it’s something similar

Or maybe you have a better suggestion for my needs. I’m wanting to use a progressbar-like visual effect that shows the user’s progress as they complete tasks in the app


Simplest - is roll your own.

Add a canvas.
In the Paint event, draw a filled rectangle

g.fillrect 0,0,g.width * whateverpercent/100, g.height

When your whateverpercent value changes, call canvas.invalidate

Thanks Jeff. I was just thinking if maybe using a canvas would be an ideal situation. I’m going to give it a try now and see how it goes. Thanks for the reply!

Yes that’ll work just fine thanks!

The only disadvantage about rolling your own, is it may look odd sitting with other standard OS controls. But most people won’t care.
