   TList = DTE.Windows().Item(Constants.vsWindowKindTaskList).Object  
   TItems = TList.TaskItems  
   i = 1  
   count = TItems.Count  
  
   ' Loop through Task List items, updating progress bar for each item.  
   For Each TI In TItems  
      SBar.Progress(True, TI.Description, i, count)  
      SBar.SetLineColumnCharacter(i, count, 0)  
      i = i + 1  
      MsgBox("Task: " & i - 1 & vbCr & "Description: " & TI.Description & vbCr & "Next task item...")  
   Next  
   ' All done, so get rid of the bar.  
   SBar.Progress(False)  
End Sub  

Remarks

There is only one StatusBar object in the IDE.

Because this example lists all of the tasks currently in the TaskList, make sure it contains some tasks before running the code.
