HProgressBar and VProgressBar controls


A progress bar has a range and a current position. The SetStep property allows you to set the size of the increments by which the current position advances as progress is shown. The default value is 10.


In a painter

To set the increment size:

  • Use the spin control or enter an integer in the SetStep text box on the General page of the control's Properties view.

In a script

SetStep takes an integer value. In the following example, the range of the progress bar is set to 0 to 500, and the step value is set to 50:

hpb_1.setstep = 50
