Continuously moving progress bar?

Hi Experts,

My application spawns an external application that normally runs for 20-30 seconds.
I don't know exactly how long it will take, so I cannot use a % style progress bar.

How can I create a progress bar that continually moves without any real relation to the progress of the external application?

Regards,
Leigh

Use the .NET ProgressBar.

Set its Style property to Marquee.

Control the speed through the MarqueeAnimationSpeed property.
