  1. In Topic: Show progress bar progress on windows Taskbar (Win7 Only)

    Posted 26 Sep 2012

    Wow, it's been a while since I've been here!

    I'm sorry to say that I've just about forgotten everything that I knew about VB since I posted this tutorial, and really can't be of any help.

    I suggest you start a new thread about the problem and see if someone else who actually has a clue can help you. Feel free to refer to my tutorial or use information from it.

    Once again, I am sorry I can't help. Good luck :D

    Glad I could help :D


    I have just discovered that the behaviour I described in my previous post seems to be random. Sometimes closing and reopening the second form is not a problem. At other times, it is! (About 50% of the time.) You may not be able to reproduce the bug. It may be my system. Should something be reset or disposed when a form is closed maybe?

    Thanks for your help. I managed to make your example but I had a bit of trouble getting started. I did not realise that you have to use VS C# to build the dll. (I normally use VB.NET). I also had to add a reference to System.Xaml.dll manually in the C# project. (I found it here: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319)

    I now have a problem. I have added a second form to the project exactly like the first. The first form now contains only a button to open the second form. If you open the second form using the button on the first form, the code functions correctly in the second form, exactly as it did when there was only one form. However, if you close the second form and then reopen it, the progress bar in the taskbar no longer appears when the trackbar is moved!

    I was hoping to use the progress bar in the taskbar icon to represent downloading/uploading progress in an app I am making but if it only works once when called from a secondary form I'm stuck! Have you any idea how to solve the problem, please?
