Showing progress bar in a status bar pane (3)

Assuming that most of the time when you are about to start a long operation, you want to show a short text in the leftmost plain-vanilla text pane, and immediately next to it a progress bar, a nice solution would be not to disturb the content of the status bar, create a progress control, initialize and advance it until operation is complete, then return the status bar to its initial state (idle text). This way, you do not have to add/remove panes in the status bar neither to resize or otherwise alter the panes, because usually all panes on a status bar are grouped rightmost, and the remaining space is used for regular text messages.

This can be best achieved by deriving a class from CStatusBar and adding a CProgressCtrl child in it. We can then add members to the new CStatusBarWithProgress to hide/show and control the progress bar.

All these prepared, you can now open up your frame class' header, and simply change CStatusBar with our new CStatusBarWithProgress. That's all.

  • With JRebel, developers get to see their code changes immediately, fine-tune their code with incremental changes, debug, explore and deploy their code with ease (both locally and remotely), and ultimately spend more time coding instead of waiting for the dreaded application redeploy to finish. Every time a developer tests a code change it takes minutes to build and deploy the application. JRebel keeps the app server running at all times, so testing is instantaneous and interactive.

  • Live Event Date: May 6, 2014 @ 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT While you likely have very good reasons for remaining on WinXP after end of support -- an estimated 20-30% of worldwide devices still are -- the bottom line is your security risk is now significant. In the absence of security patches, attackers will certainly turn their attention to this new opportunity. Join Lumension Vice President Paul Zimski in this one-hour webcast to discuss risk and, more importantly, 5 pragmatic risk mitigation techniques …
