Progress Meters provide visual, graphical feedback about processes such as the duration of an event or the magnitude of a value. Your user can better estimate remaining time to complete an event, or the percent of a numeric value without having to translate numbers or time mentally.
Simply insert the Progress Meter on your Microsoft Access form or report, and adjust its size. Several options are available:
The Value property sets the portion of the bar that is filled in. Set the Value property to a number between the Minimum and Maximum values, and the progress meter automatically displays the appropriate length.
The Caption property can be used to display any text. This is a good place to display the actual numeric value that is reflected in the display of the meter. The Progress Meter also recognizes the special case of using a percent sign (%) in the caption. The % is automatically replaced with the actual percentage value. For example, if the caption is set to “%”, the actual caption displays “55 %” (where 55 is the actual percentage value).
No programming is required to use this control; however, all properties can be set via VBA, and there are events for mouse clicks and key presses.
