Display a window that is continually updated while script continues to execute

Recommended Posts

I would like to display a window that might say,"Executing sort" with "sort" continually being updated to "delete", "search",or whatever as the script continues to execute. The purpose being to give a continual status of the execution of the script. Something like "Show Custom Dialog" but without requiring user input for script to continue, and allowing the displayed text to be continually updated.

Thanks for your help.

Hey Chuck,

Here's a method using a progress bar to display the progress of a long script:

I use this in a couple places in my solution and it works great. If you wish, you can also display text in the window indicating what is being processed at any point in time.

Just a general note that it'll look really bad on windows.
