Description

The main purpose of RadProgressBar is to indicate progress. However, it doesn't offer circular style. This tutorial aims to demonstrate a sample approach how to achieve a circular progress bar using the existing circular waiting styles for RadWaitingBar

Solution

Create a derivative of RadWaitingBar and manipulate the InitialStartElementAngle, SweepAngle and MinSweepAngle to represent the equivalent value within the range [0-100]. A sample implementation is demonstrated in the following code snippet:


        public class CircularProgressBar : RadWaitingBar
        {
            private decimal _value;
            private Color _color;

            public override string ThemeClassName
            {
                get
                {
                    return typeof(RadWaitingBar).FullName;
                }
            }

            protected override RadWaitingBarElement CreateWaitingBarElement()
            {
                RadWaitingBarElement waitingElement = base.CreateWaitingBarElement();
                waitingElement.WaitingStyle = Telerik.WinControls.Enumerations.WaitingBarStyles.FadingRing;
                FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement indicator = waitingElement.ContentElement.WaitingIndicators[0] as FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement;
                this._color = Color.Blue;
                waitingElement.Text = "0 %";

                indicator.InitialStartElementAngle = 90;
                indicator.SweepAngle = 360;
                indicator.MinSweepAngle = 0;

                return waitingElement;
            }

            public decimal ProgressValue
            {
                get
                {
                    return this._value;
                }

                set
                {
                    _value = value;
                    FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement indicator = 
                        this.WaitingBarElement.ContentElement.WaitingIndicators[0] as FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement;
                    this.WaitingBarElement.Text = value + "%";
                    indicator.MinSweepAngle = (int)ConvertProgressValueToAngle(value);
                    UpdateVisualStyles();
                }
            }

            public Color ProgressColor
            {
                get
                {
                    return _color;
                }
                set
                {
                    this._color = value;
                    FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement indicator = 
                        this.WaitingBarElement.ContentElement.WaitingIndicators[0] as FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement;
                    indicator.ElementColor = this.ProgressColor;
                    indicator.ElementColor2 = this.ProgressColor;
                }
            }

            private void UpdateVisualStyles()
            {
                FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement indicator = 
                    this.WaitingBarElement.ContentElement.WaitingIndicators[0] as FadingRingWaitingBarIndicatorElement;
                indicator.ElementColor = this.ProgressColor;
                indicator.ElementColor2 = this.ProgressColor;
                indicator.GradientStyle = Telerik.WinControls.GradientStyles.Solid;
                indicator.InnerRadius = this.Width / 4 + 10;
                indicator.Radius = this.Width / 4 + 20;
            }

            private decimal ConvertProgressValueToAngle(decimal value)
            {
                decimal angleValue = 0;
                angleValue = value * 360 / 100;
                return angleValue;
            }
        } 

        CircularProgressBar circularProgressBar = new CircularProgressBar();

        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            circularProgressBar.Size = new Size(100, 100);
            circularProgressBar.Location = new Point(10, 10);
            this.Controls.Add(circularProgressBar);
            circularProgressBar.ProgressValue = 50;
            circularProgressBar.ProgressColor = Color.DarkRed;
        }
