i have a TGauge control on my form and i want it to display the process of my TIdFTP component. So say, the TIdFTP component has downloaded 50% of a file, i want the TGauge's value to eb 50%. If it has downloaded 75% the TGauge value needs to be 75%. Any ideas?

use the OnWorkBegin, OnWork and OnWorkEnd events of the TidFTP component
you should also use TidAntiFreeze so your form will be updated normaly

something like:

procedure TForm1.ftpOneWorkBegin(Sender: TObject; AWorkMode: TWorkMode;
  const AWorkCountMax: Integer);
     if AWorkMode = wmRead then

procedure TForm1.ftpOneWorkEnd(Sender: TObject; AWorkMode: TWorkMode);
     if AWorkMode = wmRead then

procedure TForm1.ftpOneWork(Sender: TObject; AWorkMode: TWorkMode;
  const AWorkCount: Integer);
     if AWorkMode = wmRead then

where pbPosition is TProgressBar
or in your case a TGauge ..
