A C# Winforms Guided Tracker.


I’ve been looking for an implementation of a “Guided Tracker” that can be used easily within a winform wizard.
These things are also called progress indicators, and are often mistaken for breadcrumb controls. for a good guide and a look at what these can be done inside html / JavaScript, then look here : Tracker in Web Design

After seeing some nice ones done in WPF, I wanted to be able to use them via WPF hosting. This seemed to cause more problems than is solved. So I have done my own. It’s not polished yet, bit it allows me to get on with the wizard.

ProgressIndicator

This can be found here as part of the Elucidate project.

I tried to make the drawing as much a one time thing as possible (i.e. not perform on every OnPaint), and to get the existing Label control to do all the hard work of text placement and image display.
