Long Process - Do you show the status of progress bar on winform's title?
  v2.0 Posted at 19/11/2014 6:13 PM by Rebecca Liu
The importance of having the status of progress bar on winform's title:
  • Users can clearly see the progress status.
  • If the winform is minimized to taskbar, users still can see the progress status.
The form title should take the form of "[XX]% Completed - [Task Description] - [Product Name]".
There is another relevant rule about the winform title.
Winform's title without progress status
Figure: Bad Example - The winform's title does not contain the progress status
Winform's title with progress status
Figure: Good Example - The winform's title contains the status of progress bar
Winform's title with progress status (Taskbar)
Figure: Good Example - You can clearly see the progress status from taskbar when you have the windows minimized
Winform's title with progress status (Taskbar)
Figure: Good Example - Windows 7 shows the progress in the taskbar (which is visible even when the application is minimized)
