More information:
This is a self-contained module to use a PictureBox, a Frame, a Label, and some graphic(s) you provide, to give a Progress Bar but more fancy, more flexible and less overhead. The module allows you to configure background color and select your own graphics dynamically to use for progress pips; this demo uses simple color pips and a graphic to demo the variety possible. All this is done with BitBlt functions and other API calls. Neat, clean and easy.
