InvisibleApp.ShowProgress Property (Visio)

Determines whether a progress indicator is shown while performing certain operations. Read/write.

Syntax

expression. ShowProgress

expression A variable that represents an InvisibleApp object.

Return Value

Integer

Remarks

If you want to perform an operation, such as printing, that typically displays a progress indicator but you don't want the progress indicator to appear, set the ShowProgress property to False (0). By default, the ShowProgress property is True (non-zero).

In most cases you should restore the setting to its prior value when you've completed the operation.

Example

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the ShowProgress property of the Application object. It switches the display of the progress indicator on and off and displays the state of the property in the Immediate window.

 
Sub ShowProgress_Example() 
 
 'Create a variable to hold the current state 
 'of the progress indicator. 
 Dim intProgress As Integer 
 
 'Display the current state of the progress indicator. 
 Debug.Print "Initial state: " &; Application.ShowProgress 
 
 'Get the state of the progress indicator. 
 intProgress = Application.ShowProgress 
 
 'Turn off the progress indicator. 
 Application.ShowProgress = False 
 
 'Display the status again. 
 Debug.Print "Changed state: " &; Application.ShowProgress 
 
 'Now restore the progress indicator to its original state. 
 Application.ShowProgress = intProgress 
 
 'Display the status again. 
 Debug.Print "Restored state: " &; Application.ShowProgress 
 
End Sub
