i' m trying to have the progress bar display how much of a webpage has been downloaded.  i read somewhere that i should multiply the "progress" by 100 and divide that by the "progressmax" UNLESS "progress = -1".  so i came up with the following code:

ProgressBar1.Value = (Progress * 100) \ ProgressMax

but i can't quite figure out how to type up the "unless progress = -1" part.  an explaination and code would be great.  thanx

I am not familiar with your web page loading code... I think the divide by zero error does not have anything to do with you progress bar though.  That error is due to some math function you have prior to the progress bar value setting.  I would imagine you are trying to figure out the Progressbar.value in the step before you update the actualy visual value.  take a look at that code and see if you can figure out the numbers in there. Appears something is not initialized.

dim u as integer
dim a as long

a = Progress * 100
u = u

ProgressBar1.Value = (Progress * 100) \ ProgressMax

1. place cursor on "u = u" line
2. press F9
3. run the program
4. it should break on the "u = u" line
5. place the cursor on "a"
    (this will give you the value of "Progress * 100"
6. place the cursor on "ProgressMax"
    (this will give you the value of "ProgressMax"
7. you should now be able to figure out what's going on with your code

i appreciate the input, however, your step number 7...i'm still a novice programmer and i do not know how to use the input you gave me to solve my problem.  could you please give me a very specific code that won't give me that darn "divide by zero" or similar errors??

i will up the points to 200
