Silverlight Progress Bar

This free Silverlight Progress Bar with overlaying label is, easy to implement on your Silverlight website and also customizable to provide a visual feel suitable for any website design.

To use the Progress Bar control you will need to add a reference to Liquid.dll in your project.


How to Use the Progress Bar Control

In your XAML ensure you have a reference to the Liquid.dll in the UserControl tag at the top, to use the Progress Bar on your Silverlight page:

<UserControl x:Class="ProgressBar.Page"
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/client/2007"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:liquid="clr-namespace:Liquid;assembly=Liquid"
    Width="400" Height="300">
    <Canvas>
        <Canvas.Triggers>
            <EventTrigger RoutedEvent="Canvas.Loaded">
                <BeginStoryboard>
                    <Storyboard x:Name="timer">
                        <DoubleAnimation x:Name="animation" BeginTime="00:00:00" Duration="00:00:0.02" Storyboard.TargetName="InvisibleRect" Storyboard.TargetProperty="Width" />
                    </Storyboard>
                </BeginStoryboard>
            </EventTrigger>
        </Canvas.Triggers>

        <Rectangle Visibility="Visible" x:Name="InvisibleRect" Width="1" Height="1" />

        <liquid:ProgressBarPlus x:Name="progress" Canvas.Top="0" Canvas.Left="0" Width="128" Height="16" Text="Uploading"/>
    </Canvas>
</UserControl>


In your C# code behind file you can refer to the Progress Bar using progress.  The Silverlight Progress Bar has a Complete property which controls how much the bar is filled.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using System.Windows.Documents;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Media;
using System.Windows.Media.Animation;
using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace ProgressBar
{
    public partial class Page : UserControl
    {
        public Page()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            timer.Completed += new EventHandler(Tick);
        }

        private void Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            progress.Complete++;
            if (progress.Complete >= 100)
            {
                progress.Complete = 0;
            }
            // restart the timer
            timer.Begin();
        }
    }
}


In this example we use a Timer to increment the progress on every tick, this method of using a StoryBoard is necessary as Silverlight as yet has no build in support for timers.
