VB6 code utilization
Posted on 2006-06-18
Sorry if the title makes no sense - what i'm trying to seems quite simple, but I'm not getting the results that I want.
Using a filesystem command in VB6, i am copying a folder of a typical size of 650 - 750 MB of data from a DVD disk to the HDD. I have a progress bar setup to show progress (not exact, but by an estimated time of 1 min 10 secs to copy the folder on a P4 pc) However when I issue the line of code to copy the folder, my prgram doesn't respond to my timer control that updates the progress bar, so it goes from nothing to 100% after doing nothing for a minute (while the files are copied).
How can i keep my vb6 program in control while the files are copied. How could I get the progress bar control more accurate in regards to copying different sized folders on different speed pc's?
Thanx for help in advance
