This project is read-only.


This is a WPF control that looks like the Matrix movie "falling code". In the example supplied in the source code, it tracks the activity of file transfers.

Basically a short string representing an object being transferred is displayed in white vertically and scrolls downward, while random green characters trail behind and to the side.

A short video of the control / gauge in action is at



Use of a background worker is made to update the telemetry object so that the GUI does not look jerky or slow down.


Inspiration for this comes from several other Matrix projects that were Console based, but this uses the WPF System.Windows.Media framework instead.
