Windows 7 Progress Bar is an open source progress bar component that allows you to add a progress bar to your program's taskbar button.
In addition, you can control the different states of the progress bar (normal, error, and paused) for Vista & Windows 7.
This post introduces the Progress Reporter type, which greatly simplifies background tasks that need to do frequent progress reporting.
But we’re not allowed to update the Progress Bar from this thread because we aren’t the thread that created the control.Instead, we update progress by setting a property that we then bind the Progress Bar. When you display a Progress Bar to show progress on some background task, you often know how much work needs to be done and how much of the work has already been done.The status and progress bar do get updated but still if you toggle to another application and then toggle back to the Windows form application the contents of the Windows form is not refreshed. I want to have the Windows form to refresh (or redraw) itself say every second or have an event like a mouse over event refresh the window.

Hi, I have a Windows form application that has a start button, a progress bar and also writes information to the status bar the code is C#. You solve this by invoking each call to the main thread that created the form.
My problem is that when you hit the start button and the program executes then the application window does not get refreshed so you just see an ugly gray rectangle until the application ends. For help on invoking thread operations just search for information on the Invoke method on MSDN. Hello everybody I'm Alex i have little problem, i can't solve may problem on how to make auto refresh in a minute the windows form Application in c# 2008 using timer.possible.. Similarly, the Background Worker class has seen its heyday. However, BGW does have one benefit over the TPL: it is easier to use for background tasks that need to report progress to the UI. Some of them update the UI infrequently, and can be easily broken into separate tasks which only update at each “checkpoint.” Other background tasks update the UI more frequently, and cannot be easily divided this way.For the background tasks that infrequently update the UI, the common approach is to split them into separate Tasks with “checkpoints” in-between.In these cases, you can display an “indeterminate” progress bar by setting the Is Indeterminate property to true.A green bar will repeatedly slide across the face of the Progress Bar to show that something is happening.Do Events but the problem is the form has to be modeless which is not what we want.
