ProgressBar Control as Marquee

I want to use a ProgressBar control in marquee mode. In other words, I want to have a piece of the bar scroll across the screen repeatedly to show that something is happening, along the lines of the progress bar that is displayed during a file search in XP. I know that you can do this via the API by passing along a PBS_MARQUEE message to the progress bar, but this works only under XP. I was hoping to be able to come up with something that would work under all versions of Windows. Anybody know of any other methods, or of any 3rd party controls that might do this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A quick and easy way would be just to play with the status bar text.

Set up your base “bar”: [———-]
and then move a character back and forwards:
[*———]
[-*——–]
[–*——-]
[—*——]
[—-*—–]
etc

Shouldn’t be hard to do in JavaScript.
