DCX - Dialog Control Xtension
v1.4.0
Progress Bar
This control enables you to create a progress bar.

Control Styles
These control styles are available when creating a Progress Bar control. Remember that the general styles disabled, group, hidden, notheme, tabstop and transparent apply to all DCX controls except the embedded Dialog and Window controls.
alpha Control is alpha blended.
gradient Progress bar will be gradient.
marquee Progress bar is an animated bar. (XP+)
noformat Disables support for mIRC codes in control (faster).
smooth Progress bar is smooth (no line breaks in the bar)
tooltips Progress bar will have a tooltip.
vertical Progress bar is vertical.

/xdid flags
Control commands are input to the control with the /xdid command.
/xdid -c
This command lets you set the progress bar color.
Syntax:
/xdid -c [DNAME] [ID] [RGB]
Example:
/xdid -c dcx 4 $rgb(255,0,255)
 
Note.

/xdid -i
This command lets you set the progress bar text. Text is optional and if omited, no text will be displayed. If you put the characters %d in the text, it will be replaced by the position value of the progressbar as defined by the -j switch. Putting two %% signs together in the text produces a single % symbol in the displayed text. Default text is %d %%.
Syntax:
/xdid -i [DNAME] [ID] (Text)
Example:
/xdid -i dcx 4 Completed % $+ d % $+ %
 
Note. Remember that mIRC uses %d as a variable name, you will have to use % $+ d to insert the text in the control.

/xdid -j
This command lets you set the progress bar numerical representation where %d is replaced in the progressbar text.
Syntax:
/xdid -j [DNAME] [ID] [MODE]
Example:
/xdid -j dcx 4 p
Parameters:
MODE Mode letter.
a Absolute position value.
p Percentage position value (default).

/xdid -k
This command lets you set the progress bar background color.
Syntax:
/xdid -k [DNAME] [ID] [RGB]
Example:
/xdid -k dcx 4 $rgb(255,255,255)
 
Note. Only works with the notheme style.

/xdid -m[o|g]
This command lets you start/stop the progress bar marquee animation (-mo: start | -mg: stop). The N value is the interval in milliseconds between each animation (default 100 ms).
Syntax:
/xdid -m[o|g] [DNAME] [ID] [N]
Example:
/xdid -m[o|g] dcx 4 50

/xdid -o
This command lets you set whether or not the progress bar text is drawn vertically or not.

/xdid -t
This command lets you increase the progressbar by a step defined by the -u flag. When the position exceeds the maximum range value, the progress bar resets the current position so that the progress indicator starts over again from the beginning.
Syntax:
/xdid -t [DNAME] [ID]
Example:
/xdid -t dcx 4

/xdid -u
TThis command lets you set the progressbar step increase when using the -t switch (default value is 10).
