We recommend that you don’t set the Focus Event Support property to True unless really necessary, because this setting adds overhead to the standard event dispatching process and might cause other minor annoyances.

Let's click on a Progress Bar control from the Toolbox and place it on the form. Add(Progress Bar2) ' Set the caption bar text of the form.
The main properties of a progress bar are Value, Maximum and Minimum.
However, I prefer to call it explicitly and handle all validation at once since you most likely will take action only if the entire control’s children pass validation. The most important thing to recognize here is how precise you can be with the validation error message in the error provider.
There are 2 code paths for validation failure, and in each case we provide the user with an appropriate error message.
The Minimum and Maximum properties are used to set the minimum and maximum values that the progress bar can display.
The Value property specifies the current position of the progress bar.
You do not have to disable the Form’s Auto Validate property.
In such cases, using the Progress Bar allows the programmer to provide a visual status of progress.
The following are some of the commonly used properties of the Progress Bar control: Public Class Form1 Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As Event Args) _ Handles My Base.
Back Color = vb Yellow End Sub Private Sub Text1_Lost Focus() Text1.
Back Color = vb White End Sub Private Sub Text1_Validate(Cancel as Boolean) Cancel = (Text1. In some applications, however, the code in the Text1_Lost Focus method might depend on some variable that has been set in the Validate event.
The error provider simply takes a control and a message in the Set Error method and does the rest of the work for you!
