hi petereilering

i think, you can't do this.
but look in the 'samples' register in the
component-palette, there sould by such a component
named 'gauge'

yes I must agree with rene100 use the gauge component under the samples component tab...or I have a component that is a 3D progress bar

TGuage is similar to TProgressBar.  You use it in the same way, except some of the properties have different names.

TProgressBar.Min = TGuage.MinValue
TProgressBar.Max = TGuage.MaxValue
TPrograssBar.Position = TGuage.Progress

Hello petereilering.

I thinks this is what you are looking for! this is a progress bar
and a smooth progress bar just like in Microsoft outlook. Just great a new Progress.pas file and paste the code below into that file and install the component. Hope this helps.


unit Progress;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  ComCtrls;

type
  TProgress = class(TProgressBar)
  private
    FNoBlocks:Boolean;
    { Private declarations }
    procedure SetNoBlocks(AValue:Boolean);
 protected
    { Protected declarations }
    procedure CreateParams(var Params:TCreateParams); override;
  public
    { Public declarations }
  published
    property NoBlocks:Boolean read FNoBlocks write SetNoBlocks;
     { Published declarations }
  end;

const
  PBS_NOBLOCKS = $91;

procedure Register;

implementation


procedure TProgress.CreateParams(var Params:TCreateParams);
begin
 inherited CreateParams(Params);
 if FNoBlocks then
 Params.Style := Params.Style OR PBS_NoBlocks;
end;

procedure TProgress.SetNoBlocks(AValue:Boolean);
begin
 FNoBlocks:=AValue;
 ReCreateWnd;
end;

procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Samples', [TProgress]);
end;

end.
