ODE: How to Use the ProgressBar ActiveX Control
Article ID: Q174026  
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition Tools


SUMMARY
Advanced: Requires expert coding, interoperability, and multiuser skills.

You can use a ProgressBar control to show an operation's progress toward completion. A ProgressBar control has a range and a current position. This article demonstrates how you can use the Max, Min, and Value properties of the ProgressBar Control within a Microsoft Access 97 Database.

This article assumes that you are familiar with Visual Basic for Applications and with creating Microsoft Access applications using the programming tools provided with Microsoft Access. For more information about Visual Basic for Applications, please refer to the "Building Applications with Microsoft Access 97" manual.



MORE INFORMATION

  1. Start Microsoft Access 97 and open any database.

  2. In the Database window, click the Forms tab, and then click New to
     create a new form not based on any table or query.

  3. On the File menu, click Save As/Export, and save the form as
     frmProgressBar.

  4. Add three unbound text boxes to the frmProgressBar form, and set their
     properties as follows:

       Name: txtMin
       Default Value: 10
       Validation Rule: Is Not Null
       Validation Text: Please Enter a Numerical Value

       Name: txtMax
       Default Value: 5000
       Validation Rule: Is Not Null
       Validation Text: Please Enter a Numerical Value

       Name: txtStep
       Default Value: 10
       Validation Rule: Is Not Null
       Validation Text: Please Enter a Numerical Value

  5. On the Insert menu, click ActiveX Control and insert the Microsoft
     ProgressBar Control, version 5.0. Set its properties as follows:

       Name: CtlProgress
       Width: 1.95
       Height: .15

  6. Add two command buttons, and set their properties as follows:

       Name: cmdRun
       Caption: Run

       Name: cmdClear
       Caption: Clear

  7. Insert a label, and set its properties as follows:

       Name: lblComplete
       Caption: 0% Complete
       Visible: No

  8. Using the right mouse button (right-click), click the Run command
     button, and then click Build Event on the menu that appears.

  9. In the Choose Builder dialog box, click Code Builder, and then click
     OK.

 10. Type the following event procedure in the Module window:

       Private Sub cmdRun_Click()

          Dim prg As ProgressBar
          Dim IntValue As Long
          Dim fmin As TextBox, fmax As TextBox, fstep As TextBox
          Dim strComplete As String
          Dim Complete As Label

          Set fmin = Forms!frmProgressBar!txtMin
          Set fmax = Forms!frmProgressBar!txtMax
          Set fstep = Forms!frmProgressBar!txtStep
          Set prg = Me!CtlProgress.Object
          Set Complete = Me!lblComplete

          ' If the txtMin textbox contains a non-numeric value
          ' or a number less than 0, force the user to
          ' re-enter data in correct format.

          If Val(fmin) <= 0 Then
             MsgBox "Please enter a positive numerical value above 0 " & _
                "in the Minimum text box."
             fmin = Null
             fmin.SetFocus
             Exit Sub
          End If

          ' If the txtMax text box contains a non-numeric
          ' value or a number less than the value in txtMin,
          ' force the user to re-enter data in correct format.

          If Val(fmax) <= 0 Or Val(fmax) <= fmin Then
             MsgBox "Please enter a positive numerical value above " & _
                fmin & " in the  Maximum textbox."
             fmax = Null
             fmax.SetFocus
             Exit Sub
          End If

          ' If txtStep contains a non-numeric value or a number less
          ' than 1, force the user to re-enter data in correct format.

          If Val(fstep) < 1 Then
             MsgBox "Please enter a number less than or equal " & _
                "to 1 in the Step text box."
             fstep = Null
             fstep.SetFocus
             Exit Sub
          End If

          ' The maximum value for the MAX property of a progress bar
          ' is 10,000; if the number entered in txtMax is over 10,000,
          ' set the MAX property to 10,000. Otherwise, set the MAX
          ' property to whatever the user has entered.

          If fmax > 10000 Then
             prg.Max = 10000
          Else
             prg.Max = fmax
          End If

          ' The maximum value for the MIN property of a progress bar
          ' is also 10,000; if the number entered in txtMin is
          ' greater than 10,000, set the MIN property to 9,999
          ' so it is still less than the MAX property. Otherwise,
          ' set the MIN property to whatever the user has entered.

          If fmin > 10000 Then
             prg.Min = 9999
          Else
             prg.Min = fmin
          End If

          IntValue = fmin

          ' Increment the progress bar and % complete label as long as the
          ' Value assigned to it is less than or equal to the MAX property
          ' of the progress bar.

          Complete.Visible = True

          Do
             IntValue = IntValue + Me!txtStep
             If IntValue >= prg.Max Then
                IntValue = prg.Max
             End If
             prg.Value = IntValue
             strComplete = Format((prg.Value / prg.Max) * 100, "##") & _
                  " % Complete"
             Complete.Caption = strComplete
             DoCmd.RepaintObject
          Loop While IntValue < prg.Max

       End Sub

 11. Using the right mouse button (right-click), click the Clear command
     button, and then click Build Event on the menu that appears.

 12. In the Choose Builder dialog box, click Code Builder, and then click
     OK.

 13. Type the following event procedure in the module window:

       Private Sub cmdClear_Click()

          Dim prg As ProgressBar
          Dim Complete As Label

          Set prg = Me!CtlProgress.Object
          Set Complete = Me!lblComplete

          ' Clear the Progress Bar by setting its value to the
          ' Control's MIN property; then hide the Complete label.

          prg.Value = prg.Min
          Complete.Visible = False

       End Sub

 14. On the Debug menu, click Compile Loaded Modules.

 15. Save the form, and then switch to Form View.

 16. Click Run.

     Note that the ProgressBar fills while the label control shows the
     progress as a percentage.
