Create a form with a command button and two picture controls. Paste the following code

Private Sub Command1_Click()

Call init_bar(Picture1, 0) 'Make a picture box for horizontal control and then call this
Call init_bar(Picture2, 1) ' Make a picture box for vertical control and then call this

For i = 0 To 100 'Go from 0 to 100 percent
Call update_bar(Picture1, i, QBColor(4), 0) ' Update the horizontal bar
Call update_bar(Picture2, i, QBColor(5), 1) ' Update the vertical bar
For n = 1 To 300: DoEvents: Next n 'wait for a little while

Next i

For i = 100 To 0 Step -1 'Go from 100 percent to 0
Call update_bar(Picture1, i, QBColor(4), 0) 'Update the horizontal bar
Call update_bar(Picture2, i, QBColor(5), 1) 'Update the vertical bar
For n = 1 To 300: DoEvents: Next n 'wait for a little while
Next i

End Sub

Private Sub Form_DblClick()
End
End Sub

Sub update_bar(bar As Control, percent As Variant, color As Variant, orientation As Variant)

bar.Cls 'Clear out the picture
If orientation = 0 Then 'draw the horizontal Bar
bar.Line (0, 0)-(percent, bar.ScaleHeight), color, BF
Else 'draw the vertical Bar
bar.Line (0, 100 - percent)-(bar.ScaleWidth, 100), color, BF 'Draw it backwards
End If

End Sub
Sub init_bar(bar As Control, orientation As Variant)

bar.ScaleMode = 0 'Set scale mode to user
If orientation = 0 Then 'Horizontal Bar Graph
bar.ScaleWidth = 100
Else 'Vertical Bar Graph
bar.ScaleHeight = 100
End If

End Sub
