    xp boot style progress bar

    I know how to make a progress bar just fine. But how do you make the kind that have a few tickers in the middle scrolling over and over across the screen? I looked on MSDN and I couldn't find anything.
    Thanks.

    Hmm. Googling "MQ progress bar" returns nothing of use, and besides the only exising styles of the progress bar are PSB_SMOOTH and PBS_VERTICLE.

    If you're using Windows XP, and have no style on your progress bar, it should by default use the Windows XP theme, there is no style indicator to indicate the user of Windows XP theme.
