Ok, I really feel like a moron having to ask this question but my brain is fried. I have a form with a progress bar and a timer. The form is just for visual. I want to simulate that the app is grading an exam so I am using a progress bar for the effect. I have the timer's interval set to 3000. Can someone provide me with the code to update the progress bar while the timer is running its interval? I apologize for having to ask this question. Thanks for your help.

BTW - running VB6, ado2.6

  Just set the sglIncrement variable to whatever you want the increment to be, the Min & Max values can be set at design time in the properties of the control, have fun :)

  _Rha7_

============================================
Dim sglIncrement As Single

Private Sub Form_Load()

  Me.ProgressBar1.Min = 0#
  Me.ProgressBar1.Max = 100#
  sglIncrement = 1#
 
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
  If Me.ProgressBar1.Value < Me.ProgressBar1.Max Then
    Me.ProgressBar1.Value = Me.ProgressBar1.Value + sglIncrement
  Else
    Me.Timer1.Enabled = False
  End If
End Sub
============================================

I assume that what rha7 suggested is near towhat you are asking, only if could be more clear what you wanted to do viz
Update Progress bar synchronizing it with Timer or Database Records

If you want to sync progressbar with Timer - rha7 has offered solution . Else you have to be clear

would you like to use another Timer for same purpose ?
