Communicating with a Windows Service

Hi all,

I have a Windows Service that transfers data from one database to another in an x couple of minutes. Now I want to have a user interface with which I can control my service.

For example, I use want to use a progressbar in my UI that displays if the service is done transferring the data or not. I can't just have the UI application call something like 'getTransferProgress()', and have the service return a value to my UI application. Is this possible? And is it possible to set or get properties of a service?

I haven't found _anything_ about this after 2 days of searching. Anyone got a solution? It would be most appreciated!
