The subject really says it all:

Is there a WPF progressbar like the Windows Phone dots?


Turns out there's not an easy answer, but I found one here: http://www.jeff.wilcox.name/2010/08/performanceprogressbar/

The ProgressBar template for Silverlight that is built into the Windows Phone today has a negative performance cost in ‘indeterminate’ mode (the animating dots that often indicate loading during an operation of unknown time). The control is also known as ‘progress indicator’ according to the UX guidelines for the phone.


couldn't you template the current one. this is how you could template one: http://www.mobydisk.com/softdev/techinfo/flaming_progress_bar/index.html

FluidProgressBar basically consists of five Rectangles (a.k.a. Dots) whose Translation in the X direction is animated so that they appear to converge at the center as they move in from the left end and then diverge as they move towards the right end. Each of the Dots is animated using a DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFramesAnimation.


Assuming you are trying to get something like in the picture this there is a solution.

get MahApps.Metro from nuget

And use the following code

 <Window x:Class="Client.Login"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
        xmlns:Controls="http://metro.mahapps.com/winfx/xaml/controls"
        mc:Ignorable="d"
        Height="650" Width="450" >
        <Controls:MetroProgressBar IsIndeterminate="True"/>
 </Window>

I wanted to display Progress bar Ellipse more that its Default size like this : increase height of indeterminate progress dot size. I have gone through goggling and many Questions and Post of blogs but could not find any Solution . Already seen this also but not working in my case:

I want to show progress in my Desktop apps like Windows 8 ProgressRing.
