    Michael Scherotter demonstrates how to add a download progress bar for the Microsoft Silverlight Media Framework player.

    Source: Synergist

    One of my customers has been using the Microsoft Silverlight Media Framework player for their Business-to-Business media sharing portal and wanted to add a download progress bar behind the scrub bar. I was able to show them how to do this with a combination of template binding, re-templating the SMFPlayer and Timeline classes and subclassing the Timeline class.

    This control is especially used for show progress on automated operations e.g. File Copy, Installation etc. In this short article, I will explain how to make use of the Progress Bar control for simulating file copy operation from source to the destination path.

    Alex Yakhnin explains how to display a progress bar with the splash screen image in Windows Phone 7 applications.

    Source: Alex Yakhnin's Blog

    If you have seen the demo of the sample application "USGA Shot Tracker" that was created by the UX and design team at Microsoft to demonstrate the principles of the UX on WP7 platform, you have probably noticed how the app is displaying a splash screen with an animated progress bar. The problem is that the SplashScreenImage.jpg which is used in the WP7 applications is just a static image and a few people are wondering how this functionality could be achieved. I don't know how exactly it was done in this application, but this what I came up with.

    Jeff Wilcox has published this nice replacement ProgressBar for Windows Phone 7.

    The ProgressBar template for Silverlight that is built into the Windows Phone today looks beautiful but comes at a cost to performance in indeterminate mode (the animating dots that often indicate loading during an operation of unknown time).

    Here I offer a workaround which is identical in looks, but with excellent performance. It uses the render thread exclusively for animation, instead of the UI (user interface) thread. I’ve touched on this previously in a post of performance and frame rate counters for the Windows Phone.

    Recently I have been working on a project, where a certain task's completion needs to be visually indicated in some graphic way. I settled on creating a style for the ProgressBar control, with a changing background color depending on the current value of the ProgressBar.

     HSV (Hue-Saturation-Value)

    From Wikipedia :

    "HSL and HSV are the two most common cylindrical-coordinate representations of points in an RGB color model, which rearrange the geometry of RGB in an attempt to be more perceptually relevant than the cartesian representation."

    HSV is a different way of representing a color (as opposed to RGB, where R indicates a value from 0 to 255 that "controls the amount of red", G for green and B for Blue). Have a look at the link above for an in-depth discussion.

    Phil Middlemiss continues his series on creating a Chrome and Glass style theme, this time looking at the ProgressBar and Slider controls. He takes a close look at the Indeterminate State of the ProgressBar control and explains what Control Parts are.

    Control Template of SliderThe red circle is around the Control Part icon. That icon indicates that the control expects there to be an element in the template called "ProgressBarTrack", and it usually has to be a control of the same type as is used in the default control template - in this case a Border control for "ProgressBarTrack" and a Rectangle element for "ProgressBarIndicator".

    In this video Paul Yanez shows how to databind a progressbar’s width to the position of a video.
     The Databinding feature in Microsoft Expression Blend 3 allows this interaction without the need to write one of code.

    This is part 3 in the series of Paul Yanez on building a Hulu inspired video playerand and in this tutorial he is building a progress bar.

    We will take the design of our progress bar and set it’s width equal to the position of the video’s current position. To make this dynamic and without needing to write any code we will use the concept of Binding.

    With the release of the Release Candidate version of Silverlight 2 three long awaited controls were presented - the PasswordTextBox, the ComboBox and the ProgressBar. Since the need of such controls were pretty big, a lot of custom controls were created and the existing ones have been extended in order to fill that need. Probably you've already read a couple of tutorials about creating your own ProgressBar control. We have also developed our own simple progress bar for the Voting control and I was ready to show it off in a separate article, but that's not necessary now. Instead of this we are going to take a look at the ProgressBar control that came with the release candidate and show some of its basic features.
