I just had a better idea than that: I'll create a new "slider"
type, basically a value slider (which is probably what you use for the progress 
bars) called a "FL_VERT_PROGRESS_BAR" or "FL_HOR_PROGRESS_BAR". It allows a 
label centered within the "slider" and doesn't react to any user actions, i.e. 
it's just for visualization. So all you'd have to do is change the slider type 
for your progress bars. What do you think about that?
                              Best regards, Jens
