Show a Progress Bar in the Status Area
Sometimes we want to break the rules. If you write into the status area of the screen,
you must be aware that the next version of the operating system might destroy
your graphics. On the other hand, the LCD is small and it is useful to show the
progress of a long search in the status area instead of using application space.
This function draws a progress bar in the status area of the LCD screen.
The input value is between 0 and 27. A negative value is used to erase
the progress bar.
int ProgressBar( int pcount )
// 0 < pcount < 28
// pcount < 0 erases the progress bar
if (pcount > 27) pcount = 27;
pScreen = OGUI_GetScreen();
pWDC = (WidgetDC *) MCALL0( pScreen, GetWidgetDC);
if ( pcount < 0 )
WidgetDC_FillRect (pWDC, 3, 11, 28, 4, LCD_COL_WHITE, MODE_COPY);
WidgetDC_DrawRect (pWDC, 3, 11, 28, 4, LCD_COL_BLACK, LINE_SOLID);
WidgetDC_FillRect (pWDC, 3, 12, pcount, 2, LCD_COL_BLACK, MODE_COPY);
WidgetDC_FillRect (pWDC, 4+pcount, 12, 26-pcount, 2, LCD_COL_WHITE, MODE_COPY);
// not needed if progress is always forward
MCALL1( pScreen, FreeWidgetDC, pWDC);
OGUI_PrepareDelay(); // force screen update while busy searching
