Status bar

Hi,

How to write a pie of code that show the status bar (blue color) in VB like when we downloading the file from internet?

My scenario is every time when user click on the Export Button, the program will extract the data from database (about 4000 records) and then write to excel.

I would like to add the status bar to show the user how many percentage being process....and after finished processing, then pop the message box to tell the user that process is completed. My point is to show the user that the program is processing the data and is not hang!


Can anyone show me some working code?

Thanks.

Hi hto55, you could use the progress bar control as supplied by Microsoft is in Microsoft Windows Common controls 6 in the project>components section of VB- depending on what version you have I think.

another option is using this code from MVP Jonathon West to simulate a progress bar in Word

The procedures are as follows, and assume that the progress bar has a Width of 200, and that the lower control is called ProgressBar and the upper one is ProgressBarText.

Private lngPercent As Long

Property Let PercentComplete(Percent As Long)
If Percent < 0 Then
    lngPercent = 0
ElseIf Percent > 100 Then
    lngPercent = 100
Else
    lngPercent = Percent
End If
ProgressBarText.Caption = CStr(lngPercent) & "%"
ProgressBar.Width = 2 * lngPercent
End Property

Property Get PercentComplete() As Long
PercentComplete = lgnPercent
End Property
