using the progressbar control i can only use the default green one.
Looking in windows 7 i have noticed this control, see image below.
I found this article:
My question is, how to use this control in Visual Studio 2013 labelling a blue progress bar?
Edit: i would like the blue color, not the red, yellow or green one. This control is called "meter".
Sorry but its not Accessible as stated:
In Windows Vista, progressbars come in different flavors, the most common progressbar being the green one. However, there are also the red and yellow versions as well (there is a blue version, known as a meter, but that is inaccessible). The progressbar colors seem to correspond to specific progressbar states. You can set these states using the PBM_SETSTATE [0x40F] message. The states are PBST_NORMAL [0x0001], PBST_ERROR [0x0002] and PBST_PAUSE [0x0003].
But if you are interested it is possible to access the Red and Yellow Color using the following:
Declare Auto Function SendMessage Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal hWnd As IntPtr, ByVal msg As Integer, ByVal wParam As Integer, ByVal lParam As Integer) As Integer Enum ProgressBarColor Green = &H1 Red = &H2 Yellow = &H3 End Enum Private Shared Sub ChangeProgBarColor(ByVal ProgressBar_Name As ProgressBar, ByVal ProgressBar_Color As ProgressBarColor) SendMessage(ProgressBar_Name.Handle, &H410, ProgressBar_Color, 0) End Sub
