You mean the client's machine is downloading the PDF to display  it, and you want to show a "Loading" progressbar?

No.  This can't be done :-(

I think the best you might be able to do, is to force the User to download the PDF, so it comes up with the system progress bar as they save it to disk...(the same as if they are downloading any file)

Is there a way to get an information from browser about load status so that you could show maybe some kind of pop-up that displays progress?

Nope... :-(  Not even with javascript...

And the browser has probably given control over to Adobe Acrobat or similar as soon as it sees it's a PDF :-/
