I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you be a bit (i mean a lot) more descriptive ?

sample screenshot ?

your title says progressbar, your question says TGauge ... which is it ?
TGauge is a sample of how to create a component in the demos.

You're using a built-in control. One that itself doesn't have that many options. Therefore, what you see is what you get.
There's no flashy blinking moving stuff as the Win7 native progress bar
To get a little bit close to Win7 native, try Visual Studio from MS (there's a free version as well). Programming in VB.net won't be that difficult (probably much easier even).

try torry.net. You will find many third parties components, many of them enhanced versions of the traditional delphi components.
Good luck

Try devexpres.
They have multiple skins.

Visual studio ? What's that ?
The delphi components are usually wrappers around the windows native controls for easier handling

this is a sample of a TProgressbar and a non-skinned devexpress progressbar[embed=file 1196787]

Ended up simply using the standard TGauge component, setting the color to a light green green.
Had hoped to find the progress bar used in Remote Desktop Connections wrapped in the OS somewhere.
