Самый простой способ, это изменить цветовую схему в свойствах экрана...

 

А вот при помощи следующей команды можно разукрасить ProgressBar не изменяя системных настроек:

Начиная с виньХР появились в системе забавные ProgressBar'ы, которые не отображают реального "прогресса", а лишь отображают, что что-нибудь работает... такой же появляется при загрузки виндыХР (бегает пару чёрточек слева вправо, а потом обратно возвращаются в начало). Такой же прогресс отображается если в ХР выбрать изображение, в меню нажать на Print (Печать), и вэтом диалоге при выборе шаблона печати - тоже такого стиля есть прогресс. (надеюсь, что теперь ясно что я имел в виду  )

 

И сам вопрос: как такой сделать на делфи?

Заказчик моего проекта обратился с просьбой - "Сделать прогресс индикатор как в приложениях Нортона. Чтоб был в статус строке и НИКАКИХ рамок". ProgressBar в StatusBar - нет проблем, но как быть с рамкой от ProgressBar? ProgressBar всегда вычерчивает рамку и не имеет методов ее управления. Однако появилась интересная идея, воплотившаяся в компонент с новым свойством ShowFrame. Решение оказалось на удивление простым. На рисунке сравнение стандартного ProgressBar и ProgressBar с невидимой рамкой.

Use this ProgressBar when you do not know the amount of progress toward

completion but wish to indicate that progress is being made.

 

This ProgressBar works only on Windows XP and the ComCtl32.dll version

6.00 or later is needed. To use the new ComCtrl you have to provide the manifest.

In Delphi 7 just drop TXPManifest on the form. For prior versions of Delphi

you have to include the XP manifest resource.

Question:

 

I am trying query to display records in a dbgrid.however, due to size

of tables and joins takes a while for the query to Execute.is

there any way to Show a prorgess bar with a timer that increments

position but continues to work while the query is being executed.BTW,

using access so BDE is not used.

 

Answer:

 

A progress bar would not be an ideal choice since you cannot determine up

front how long the query will take, so you do not know the range the progress

bar has to cover.A simple kind of animation that tells the user basically

only that the application is not hung would be more appropriate.One could do

such a thing in a secondary thread but it would have to be done using the

plain Windows API and * no * Synchronize calls (since the main thread is

blocked in the BDE call).Here is an example: unit anithread;
