Is there an API for the new Windows 8 progress dialog?

Note: i use the term "progress dialog" to refer to a dialog that indicates progress. Not to be confused with the Windows Shell "Progress Dialog", which has a supported IProgressDialog api.

My quick perusal of the MSDN Windows 8 Technologies list showed nothing that looked similar to something that might be related to an area of interest that i'm looking into. (i.e. just because i said it, doesn't make it true. No reason to close the question)


As mentioned here, there is no official one available out there yet. However, you may find some custom developed ones on the Internet.
