Hi, I was hoping someone could tell me if it is possilbe to put some text on a ProgressBarAdv control instead of the percent complete. For example "Loading images..."

Hi Richard, Yes, you could do so by following the directions given below : 1. Set the ProgressBarAdv''s TextStyle to Custom 2. Handle the ProgressBarAdv''s ValueChanged event and set e.Text = "your desired text" and e.Handled = true. Please refer to the sample_attached that demonstrates this. Thanks for considering Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

Thanks Guru, That works well, now how can I align the text, currently it appears that the start of the text starts from the center, so it runs off the right hand side.

Hi Richard, I am afraid, presently the ProgressBarAdv does not have the ability to align the Text on it. However, we have could consider this as a feature request for a future release of Essential Suite. We appreciate your feedback, and thanks for choosing Syncfusion products.

Hi Richard, A TextAlignment property has been added to the ProgressbarAdv which would now allow you to align the Text. This feature is still internal, and would be available in the next release of Essential Suite (post v2.0.5.14 releases). Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

I am trying to do the same thing, would love to see the sample code but it seems to not be accessible. Thanks...

Guru- Can you repost the sample code? It looks like it is not there anymore. Thank you.

I''m curious why it''s necessary to handle an event to set the text? Why can''t I just set the text when I set the value. Maybe an overloaded value of SetValue that takes a string as a second parameter. Obviously there are many ways of doing this. You might also want to look at how Infragistics handles this, they define some formatting variables, so you can say the text will be "Loading " + [constant that will be replaced with formatted text showing percentage or whatever].

Guess nobody had any comment on that.
