Progress bar too slow

Recommended Posts

MacGoose

I have created a progress bar:

    $ctrlProgressComplete = GUICtrlCreateProgress( 15, 355, $windowWidth - 30, 20)
 
And are using this to progress it:
 
    GUICtrlSetData($ctrlProgressComplete, ((1 / 8) * 100))
    ...
 
However, the progress of the progress bar is so slow that my real progress is finished before the progress bar is.
 
The problem is most likely that the progress animation is asynchronous.  The default style of a progress bar should be segmented, but it seems to be $PBS_SMOOTH as the animation IS very smooth and slow.
 
How do I make this progress bar move fast and not slow?  I want that segmented and fast progress bar that was before...

Are you using windows 7? by default is $PBS_SMOOTH

for more speed change this (1 / 8) * 100)

Is there any way to change it to not be smooth?

No need to get more speed by changing (1/8) * 100).  What I need is slower code so the progress animation can catch up with the code, not more speed.

The problem is that the animation is so slow that when the code is finished the progress animation is only 50% through.  I would rather just remove the progress bar if this can't be fixed...

Sounds to me as if you're not setting the progress bar position using a real percentage of the amount completed. Post a reproducer script that demonstrates how you're doing it and that shows it not working correctly.

I think he means the progress bar is not instantaneous for changing its value.
 
As you can see using the following example :

GUICreate("MyGUI")
$pb1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(0, 0, 400, 26)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
 
Sleep(200)
 
GUICtrlSetData($pb1, 100)
 
Sleep(1000)

I don't know if it's possible to change this speed like the marquee.

Br, FireFox.

When using Windows Vista and above, there is no XP style progress bar in the standard Window's API, you have to roll your own.

You may have already received an answer to this but here is how I increment my progress bars... (An extract from one of my projects)

ProgressOn("Progress Meter", "Server Info Collect", "Server Name: ",-1,-1,16)
For $cnt = 1 To $aServerList[0]
    ProgressSet(Round((100 / $aServerList[0]) * $cnt), "Server: " & $aServerList[$cnt])
    $srvIP = TCPNameToIP($aServerList[$cnt])
    ConsoleWrite($aServerList[$cnt] & "     " & $srvIP & @CRLF)
;Other code could go here. Value could also be incremented using something like $cnt += 1 in a different loop
Next
ProgressSet(100, "Server: ", "Completed")
Sleep(500)
ProgressOff()
