Try this example, it's about as simple as it gets. the magic parameter is the
/data variable which goes from 0 (no bar) to 100 (solid bar)
view layout [
Mybar: progress 300x30
Button "Do bar " [
loop no-of-steps [
mybar/data: mybar/data + (1 / No-of-steps)
] ; action
] ; layout

You're not the first to notice the docs problem......Every language has its
Achilles' heel, and Rebol's is its lack of documentation.
That's strangely ironic given RTs mission statement ("We dramatically improve
the way people collaborate, communicate, share, and process information
across all Internet systems")
