NAME

       Tk::ProgressBar - A graphical progress bar

SYNOPSIS

           use Tk::ProgressBar;

           $progress = $parent->ProgressBar(
               -width => 20,
               -length => 200,
               -anchor => 's',
               -from => 0,
               -to => 100,
               -blocks => 10,
               -colors => [0, 'green', 50, 'yellow' , 80, 'red'],
               -variable => \$percent_done
           );

           $progress->value($position);

DESCRIPTION

       Tk::ProgressBar provides a widget which will show a graphical representation of a value,
       given maximum and minimum reference values.

STANDARD OPTIONS

       The following standard widget options are supported:

       -borderwidth
       -highlightthickness
           Defaults to 0.

       -padx
           Defaults to 0.

       -pady
           Defaults to 0.

       -relief
           Defaults to "sunken"

       -troughcolor
           The color to be used for the background (trough) of the progress bar.  Default is to
           use grey55.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS

       -anchor
           This can be used to position the start point of the bar. Default is 'w' (horizontal
           bar starting from the left). A vertical bar can be configured by using either 's' or
           'n'.

       -blocks
           This controls the number of blocks to be used to construct the progress bar. The
           default is to break the bar into 10 blocks.

       -colors
           Controls the colors to be used for different positions of the progress bar.  The
           colors should be supplied as a reference to an array containing pairs of positions and
           colors.

             -colors => [ 0, 'green', 50, 'red' ]

           means that for the range 0 to 50 the progress bar should be green and for higher
           values it should be red.

       -from
           This sets the lower limit of the progress bar.  If the bar is set to a value below the
           lower limt no bar will be displayed. Defaults to 0.  See the "-to" description for
           more information.

       -gap
           This is the spacing (in pixels) between each block. Defaults to 1.  Use 0 to get a
           continuous bar.

       -length
           Specifies the desired long dimension of the ProgressBar in screen units (i.e. any of
           the forms acceptable to Tk_GetPixels). For vertical ProgressBars this is the
           ProgressBars height; for horizontal scales it is the ProgressBars width.  The default
           length is calculated from the values of "-padx", "-borderwidth", "-highlightthickness"
           and the difference between "-from" and "-to".

       -resolution
           A real value specifying the resolution for the scale. If this value is greater than
           zero then the scale's value will always be rounded to an even multiple of this value,
           as will tick marks and the endpoints of the scale. If the value is less than zero then
           no rounding occurs. Defaults to 1 (i.e., the value will be integral).

       -to This sets the upper limit of the progress bar. If a value is specified (for example,
           using the "value" method) that lies above this value the full progress bar will be
           displayed. Defaults to 100.

       -variable
           Specifies the reference to a scalar variable to link to the ProgressBar.  Whenever the
           value of the variable changes, the ProgressBar will update to reflect this value. (See
           also the value method below.)

       -value
           This can be used to set the current position of the progress bar when used in
           conjunction with the standard "configure". It is usually recommended to use the value
           method instead.

       -width
           Specifies the desired narrow dimension of the ProgressBar in screen units (i.e.  any
           of the forms acceptable to Tk_GetPixels). For vertical ProgressBars this is the
           ProgressBars width; for horizontal bars this is the ProgressBars height.  The default
           width is derived from the values of "-borderwidth" and "-pady" and
           "-highlightthickness".

WIDGET METHODS

       $ProgressBar->value(?value?)
           If value is omitted, returns the current value of the ProgressBar.  If value is given,
           the value of the ProgressBar is set. If $value is given but undefined the value of the
           option -from is used.
