A ProgressBar control is used to display the progress of some activity.
The attached application creates a ProgressBar and shows the server activity. The project is developed using C#, Windows Forms, and Visual Studio 2005.
The UI of the application looks like following.
The source code is listed below.
As you can see below, I add a timer control to the form and on the timer tick event handler, I increament the value of the progressbar.
Download the attached project for more details.
public partial class Form1 : Form
// Call the function of tick event of the timer:_...
// Set the timer Intervel at 60:_
// Set the timer enabled "True" by the timer properties:_
private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
//Create the function for progress bar:_
public void fn_prbar_()
label1.Text = "Connecting to server_ " + progressBar1.Value.ToString() + "%";
if (progressBar1.Value == progressBar1.Maximum)
MessageBox.Show("Server has been connected");
