Problem getting the Progressbar in the Navbar

I'm trying to put a progress bar in the navbar. I copied the code, verbatim, from KitchenSink and it just doesn't pop up.

Any ideas? Compiling to 3.1, using Ti SDK 1.3.0.

Here's the code for reference

var ind3=Titanium.UI.createProgressBar({
    message:'Downloading 0 of 10',
    font:{fontSize:14, fontWeight:'bold'},

  • I got it. In case anyone else is having this problem, you have to run the .show() on it after it's been added to the view.

    • Adding to Alex's post:
      This is true for all progress bars, you have to show(). When adding other elements in the navBar you don't have to show().

    • This is also a classic example of where appcelerators docs are disappointing…
      the coding example shows defining the object, but not applying it (so no reference to show) and the docs advise "This object has no methods" … so somehow we are to magically know about .show() ?
