Progress Bars

Nov 23, 2009 at 9:56 PM



I noticed in the MetadataFetcher plugin, you created your own classes to handle the progress bar, while in Search plugin, you're using System.Windows.Forms.Progress.  Will you please give me some background on why you chose the different implementations of a progress bar?  If feasible, I think it would be good if progress bars for our plugins had the same look and feel, and I'd like to know what type of progress bar to implement.  Thanks!

The implementation in the Metadate Fetcher is legacy code (developed by Tevaganthan Veluppillai). I would agree to change the progress bar to have the same look and feel as progress bars in other plug-ins. I vote for using a similar progress bar as in the Search plug-in.

Sounds good.  I'll use a System.Windows.Forms.ProgressBar, and increment it using a BackgroundWorker.
