I agee, this should work for you if you set the increments correctly.

In HC I have 4 styles of progress bars, none of which require an X-thing.
One of them is a cute little train that uses an addColor pict with a
scrolling Picture window. In fact, I'm thinking about adding a bridge and
waterfall to it.

The point, though, is that you don't need an external for a progress bar, in
HC, and certainly not in RR.

Best regards,
