I'm working on a game project where I need an "energy meter", a small bar (similar to the progress bar control, but with more control over color and hopefully WITHOUT needing additional OCX's or anything like that) that slowly moves downward as your energy runs down. It will start at 100 (or "full", the color of the bar will probably be red), and the meter should slowly move down by itself (the colored bar should disappear backwards, leaving only the grey colored control or whatever behind it, so that the player can easily see the energy being lower visually). Notes: The player won't actually see the control going down, so "smoothness" isn't a factor. I just want the energy level to be displayed visually, rather than just putting an "Energy: 78" or whatever on the screen. Using VB 6 (SP5). Thanks!
