I would like to use a ProgressIndicator, not to indicate progress in a calculation, but to represent the transmission of information in a given direction. Here is an example from ProgressIndicator Help that indicates the type of display that I want: ProgressIndicator[Dynamic[Clock[Infinity]], Indeterminate] However, I want the ProgressIndicator to be much smaller and, as it would be, I want the information flow in the opposite direction. If I make the ProgressIndicator smaller there is no green portion to indicate a flow at all. ProgressIndicator[Dynamic[Clock[Infinity]], Indeterminate, ImageSize -> {75, 10}] I suspect this may be related to the width of the green portion and the width of the ProgressIndicator. I can obtain a kind of right to left flow with the following construction: ProgressIndicator[Dynamic[2 - Clock[2]], {0, 2}, ImageSize -> {75, 10}] My questions are: 1) Is it possible to change the green and gray colors? 2) Or better, is it possible to specify the width of the ProgressIndicator AND the location and width of the green region independently? Or are there any suggestions for independently constructing a flow indicator, perhaps one that had the kind of shading that the ProgressIndicator has? Thanks for any help on this. -- David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/
