Can someone tell me how to use the progressbar

I use the copyfile option of delphi.

Thanks,

Vincent,

look at the win API "CopyFileEx".

You must write your own copy.. It's very easy :

procedure FileCopy(SourceName,DestName:string);
var
  SourceF,DestF:file;
  Buf:array [0..1023] of byte;
  NumRead,FSize,BytesCopied:integer;
begin
  AssignFile(SourceF,SourceName);
  AssignFile(DestF,DestName);
  FileMode:=0;
  Reset(SourceF,1);
  Rewite(DestF,1);
  FSize:=FileSize(SourceF);
  BytesCopied:=0;
  while not Eof(SourceF) do
  begin
    Blockread(SourceF,Buf,SizeOf(Buf),NumRead);
    Blockwrite(DestF,Buf,NumRead);
    Inc(BytesCopied,NumRead);
    ProgressBar1.Position:=(BytesCopied*100) div FSize;
    Application.ProcessMessages;
  end; (* while *)
  CloseFile(SourceF);
  CloseFile(DestF);
end;
