I have an app that processes files and takes a long time to complete.  I would like the minimised application to display percentage of progress in the task bar like IE does when downloading a file off the net.

How do I do it?

Thanks

John

Assuming that in your code you already retrieve the processed percentage just assign to application.title the string value of that:

for example:

Application.title := IntToSTr(Percentage)+' % files processed';

You could add a progress bar on your form

var
  i: Integer;
  pb: TProgressbar;

begin
pb.min := 0;
pb.max := 100;
pb.position := 0;
pb.step := 1;
for i:= 0 to 100 do begin
  pb.stepit;
end;

end;
