Hello supadodger,

There are alot of different ways to create an active Progress Meter, It more depends on what your trying to accomplish.

Here is a basic example:

HotKeySet("+!z", "Stop")

Local $stop = 0
ProgressOn("Activity Meter", "Press 'Shit+Alt+z' to Stop", "Doing Stuff")
For $i = 0 to 100 step 10
    If $i = 100 Then
        ProgressSet( $i,"Doing Stuff")
        $i = 0
    ProgressSet( $i,"Doing Stuff")
    If $stop Then $i =100

ProgressSet(100 , "Done", "Complete")

Func Stop()
    $stop = 1
EndFunc ;==>Stop()

Its a bit rudimentary, but I hope it gives you an idea in the general direction.


Edit: I do believe there are alot of other examples under keyword 'marque'

You could use something like this:

Local $PBMarquee = GUICtrlCreateProgress(20, 140, 180, 20, $PBS_MARQUEE)
    Local $hPBMarquee = GUICtrlGetHandle($PBMarquee)
    _SendMessage($hPBMarquee, $PBM_SETMARQUEE, True, 20) ; final parameter is update time in ms

Add this to a GUI and it will give you a scrolling marquee style progress bar that will auto-update.
