I want to display a progress bar in a status strip on the parent form and show that a form is loading.  It does not have to be attached to anything as far as time goes.  I simply want to start it when a fom starts to load let it count up then start over if the form hasn't displayed yet.  I think the marquee mode is probably what I want to use???  How do I start and stop the progress bar?

"How do I start and stop the progress bar?"

To start it: (it just goes automatically in Marquee mode)

        ToolStripProgressBar1.Style = ProgressBarStyle.Marquee

To stop it:

        ToolStripProgressBar1.Style = ProgressBarStyle.Blocks
        ToolStripProgressBar1.Value = 0

So far so good but how do I make it run while the form is loading.  The progress bar is shown on the parent form but the marquee stops when the form is loading.

All forms run on the same main UI thread...I'm not sure there is a workaround for that!...
