Working with Progress Bar Control in VB.Net

Author: DevASP
Download Source Code :

In this article you will learn how to work with Progress Bar Control and Mouse Wheel event of the window form.

Create a New Project in Drag a Progress bar control from tool box and place on form and now drag and drop four buttons on form having text  l< << >> >l. this is simple interface for this purpose.

Now write code on form load even of the form


Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load


        ProgressBar1.Minimum = 0

        ProgressBar1.Maximum = 100

        ProgressBar1.Value = 0


End Sub

  • Now write code on button click events.

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click


        If ProgressBar1.Value < 100 Then

            ProgressBar1.Value += 5

        End If


End Sub



Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click


        If ProgressBar1.Value > 0 Then

            ProgressBar1.Value -= 5

        End If


End Sub



Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click


        ProgressBar1.Value = 100


End Sub



Private Sub Button4_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click


        ProgressBar1.Value = 0


End Sub


This is code for buttons now we will see how we can work with progress bar with mouse wheel scrolling. Select MouseWheel event from form1 events.Now write simple code in this event:


Private Sub Form1_MouseWheel(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles MyBase.MouseWheel


        If e.Delta > -1 Then

            If ProgressBar1.Value < 100 Then

                ProgressBar1.Value += 5


            End If


            If ProgressBar1.Value > 0 Then

                ProgressBar1.Value -= 5


            End If

        End If


End Sub

Now in if condition you see that > -1 this is important for us when we scroll mouse one time control comes in this event and if we scroll wheel up side value will < 0 and if we scroll down side value > 0. Only remember these things in mind. Now see this condition ProgressBar1.Value < 100 we are handling the exception and also in ProgressBar1.Value > 0 because progressbar value should be in range of progressbar1.minimum and progressbar1.maximum.
