I have a progress bar set to style marquee, marquee animation speed=100 but nothing is ever scrolled in the progress bar, the progress bar is on a form that I call in my code

            frmMarquee = new frmMarqueeBar();

then after the background worker is done it closes the Marquee form, any ideas as to why the progressbar never displays anything.

Attached is a picture of what the form looks like, the progress bar never does anything but stay like it is in the picture
