Create a pop up Progress bar on a bare Form.

I want to create a pop-up progress bar for a program I am writing.  I could do it normally, with a regular windows form and just drop the progress bar in that.  The thing I want is a borderless box for the progressbar to go in.  I don't want the bar across the top of a default form (no close, min, or max buttons or the bar they sit on).  Is this possible?

I have answered my own question:

The way to make a bare form is to do:

form1.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None

This will allow me to put a ProgressBar in the form without any min, max, close buttons or the Title bar.
