This is library for a progress bar, but since I've found myself using it in several of my recent applications, I thought I'd package it up and share it with the community.
The API allows you to create an instance of the progress bar and returns a notifier reference which is used to increment it (and optionally display the name of the current item being loaded). The progress bar will only appear if it takes at least 500ms to load something in order to avoid watching the window rapidly flash and disappear during fast loads.
Version 2.0 features the ability to enable cancelleation (can be turned off), which returns a boolean value the next time the 'Increment Progress Bar' VI is called. The included example has been changed to illustrate this new feature, as well as how parallel processes can both increment the same progress bar and also be notified of a cancellation. This version is only available for 2012
Version 1.0 is still available for those of you who want to use it with 2011, but due to the use of the a-sync call, it cannot be saved for previous versions.
