I am using progress bars in my program, is there a way to label the progress bar with a scale (say  0 - 100)so the user can tell what the exact value is.

Yes you could. This is not exactly a scale that goes across the entire bar,
but it shows the current percentage done in digits:

declare the progress bar as follows:

ProgressMonitor monitor = new ProgressMonitor(this, "Processing...","Started",0,100);

Then, for your running program, do a loop, and in the loop:

   int ticks = 0;
   for(each iterations) {
       ticks+= 10;
       monitor.setProgress(ticks);
       monitor.setNote(String.valueOf(ticks)+"%"); // displays percentage done.
   }

There, simple as that.
