KPV - well since this page is blank I'll jump in and point out that my Fractal Mountains uses a canvas as a progressbar. Actually, it uses it both as a progress bar and as a place to display status messages.
What: canvas progress bar widget Where: From the contact Description: Basic progress bar which works with respect to resizing. Updated: 10/1998 Contact: mailto:[email protected] (Eric Galluzzo)
Another canvas approach is at the bottom of the page: poor man's progressbar
