Progress Bar

SIMUL8 displays a Progress Bar on key tasks such as Opening or Saving a simulation.

The Progress Bar is displayed on the Status Bar on the bottom of the screen and updates as the task performs.

You can also create your own progress bar for your tasks through Visual Logic using the commands below. This is really useful when you're creating your own interfaces for your simulation.

1. Setup the progress bar

Use the command Setup Progress Bar to create your progress bar. You tell it what label it should have and what is it's maximum value.

2. Update the progress bar

As your task executes tell SIMUL8 to update the progress bar to the relevant value using the command Set Progress Bar.

3. Close the progress bar

When your task has completed close the progress bar using the command Close Progress Bar.
