About trackbar Controls:
The common controls are a set of windows that are implemented by the common control library, which is a dynamic-link library (DLL) included with the Microsoft® Windows® operating system. Like other control windows, a common control is a child window that an application uses in conjunction with another window to perform I/O tasks.
A trackbar is a window that contains a slider and optional tick marks. When the user moves the slider, using either the mouse or the direction keys, the trackbar sends notification messages to indicate the change.

Trackbars are useful when you want the user to select a discrete value or a set of consecutive values in a range. For example, you might use a trackbar to allow the user to set the repeat rate of the keyboard by moving the slider to a given tick mark. The following illustration shows a typical trackbar.

The slider in a trackbar moves in increments that you specify when you create it. This range of values is referred to as logical units. For example, if you specify that the trackbar should have logical units that range from zero to five, the slider can occupy only six positions: a position at the left side of the trackbar and one position for each increment in the range. Typically, each of these positions is identified by a tick mark.
