Creating a simple bar chart: I would like to display a bar chart that resembles a progress indicator. I have seen the examples in the GuiXT Controls tutorials that explain how to create charts with VB.NET. Is there a shorter way for this simple bar chart?

Try the following approach:

You define two small unicolor images, e.g. "green.png" and "red.png". Then use dynamic coordinates to display two adjacent images. Example:

Set V[x] "22.87"
Image (1,1)   (2,&V[x])  "green.png" -plain
Image (1,&V[x])   (2,30) "red.png"  -plain

Please note that you may need InputAssistant to perform calculations for the image coordinates.
