Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v20.1.dll


public int Maximum { get; set; }
Public Property Maximum As Integer

Property Value

Type Default Description


An integer value representing the maximum value.


This property specifies the upper limit of the ProgressBarControl.Position property. When this value is modified, the control is redrawn immediately to reflect its new range of values.

Use this property to provide the value required for ProgressBarControl.Position to indicate that an operation is complete. For example, you can set the Maximum property to the total number of files in a file copy operation. Each time a file is copied, the ProgressBarControl.Position property can be increased by one until all files have been copied.


In the code fragment below, a DeleteFiles method removes all files contained within the directory specified by the source parameter. The ProgressBarControl is used to display the progress of file delete operations. The RepositoryItemProgressBar.Minimum and RepositoryItemProgressBar.Maximum properties are used to specify a range for the progress bar that is equivalent to the number of files to be removed. The code also uses the RepositoryItemProgressBar.Step property with the ProgressBarControl.PerformStep method, to increment the position of the progress bar as soon as a file is removed.

using System.IO;
using DevExpress.XtraEditors.Controls;
// ...
private void DeleteFiles(string source){
   if (Directory.Exists(source)){
      string[] fileEntries = Directory.GetFiles(source);
      // Initializing progress bar properties
      progressBarControl1.Properties.Step = 1;
      progressBarControl1.Properties.PercentView = true;
      progressBarControl1.Properties.Maximum = fileEntries.Length;
      progressBarControl1.Properties.Minimum = 0;
      // Removing the list of files found in the specified directory
      foreach(string fileName in fileEntries){
// ...
