Command-Line Name:-variable

Read-only option. The widget periodically increments the value of this option whenever the -value is greater than 0 and, in determinate mode, less than -maximum. This option may be used by the current theme to provide additional animation effects. _________________________________________________________________


A progress bar widget shows the status of a long-running operation. They can operate in two modes: determinate mode shows the amount com-pleted relative to the total amount of work to be done, and indetermi-nate mode provides an animated display to let the user know that some-thing is happening.
