How to add a progress bar in asp.net with visual basic? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User426001450 posted

    As I can see from this article on the Web, VB.Net - ProgressBar Control at   https://www.tutorialspoint.com/vb.net/vb.net_progress_bar.htm , there is a progress bar control for visual basic. I’m kind of confused here, because I cannot find it in my Visual Studio. The article is about VB.Net. Does this apply to asp.net as well? If it does, how can I find it in my Visual Studio? Do I have to add it? Do any of you used it before? Thanks for your help.

    The progress bar is in System.Windows.Forms  space.   Are you working on a website, or a windows desktop application (windows forms)?

    You'll find that control in a Windows Desktop application, not a website.

    That tool is not available for a website.   You can add progress bars many ways - but not from the standard toolkit.

    Mark this thread as answered by my response (since your question was about that tool), and open a new question about a progress bar, and include what you want the progress bar for. Loading the page?  Performing a function the user initiated with a click? Something else?

    You'll get answers.

    Hi vstorpedo,

    I'm working with a website. It is not possible to add it to a website?

    As KathyW says, we couldn't use win form's process bar in the asp.net since this will only wrok in the server side.

    I suggest you could cosider using jquery and webmethod to achieve your requirement.

    You could use jquery send the request to the server side and use it show the process bar.

    More details about how to use it in vb.net, you could refer to below article.



    Best Regards,
