Use of ProgressBar in WPF also add it in Status bar with animation effect

In this article i will show you, how to use progress bar in wpf (Window Presentation Foundation) and how to add it in status bar dynamically. Actually i explained it with basic information, today i will explain more about it. In this article, first to add a status bar in the page after that add a TextBlock control in it. Now the code look like :


<Grid>

        <StatusBar Name="sbar1" Background="BlueViolet" VerticalAlignment="Bottom">
            <StatusBarItem>
                <TextBlock>Status:</TextBlock>
            </StatusBarItem>
        </StatusBar>
    </Grid>

Now, create a new function just after the InitializeComponent() method, it means you can view your progress bar on window load.  

Code behind code

using System;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;

namespace WpfApplication2
{
    /// <summary>
    /// Interaction logic for progressbar.xaml
    /// </summary>
    public partial class progressbar : Window
    {
        public progressbar()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            
            createprogressbar();
        }

        private void createprogressbar()
        {
            ProgressBar pb2 = new ProgressBar();
            pb2.IsIndeterminate = false;
            pb2.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal;
            pb2.Width = 100;
            pb2.Height = 25;
           
            Duration dur = new Duration(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(30));
            DoubleAnimation dblani = new DoubleAnimation(200.0, dur);
            pb2.BeginAnimation(ProgressBar.ValueProperty, dblani);
            sbar1.Items.Add(pb2);

        }

  
    }
}

Now, code generate the following output:

Here,
  1. Create a ProgressBar class object also set some data members like width, height etc.
  2. Set the animation by BeginAnimation method( )
