Correction: The subject line was supposed to have said BAR CHARTS, not bar codes.

Rather than reinventing the wheel, I'd like to know if something already exists that will get going me in the right direction.

I have a program that, among other things, ftp's files to multiple computers in a multi-tasking mode.

Since the files can be large and can take a long to complete, the system looks like it's dead so I print out some text output to one of my frames. But it's ugly and confusing since up to 20 processes are running.

Is there something out there that I can use for dynamic 'bar charts", "thermometers" or something like multiple progressdialogs (up to 20 processes within 1 window)? Having 20 separate progressdialogs would be an awful mess.

My knowledge of graphics is nil but given a start, I'd be able to figure it out.

Thank you

I derived my own solution which meets all of my needs.
