Create a form with a command button and two picture controls. Paste the following code
into your project to see progress bars made from picture controls.

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
