Not using visual basic here, but vbs script from the desktop.

What I want to do as an example is display the progress of a vbs script to the screen.

e.g

for x= 1 to 2000

put the value of x on the screen

do some more stuff

next

The simple output is normally wscript.echo,
But this stops the code waiting for an ok response from the user.

Any ideas please.

Hi,

This might seem a fade too much to your question ... but I'd still suggest reading this article: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/topics/help/wmidiag.mspx

... I'm referring to this article because it gives you a professional approach (including source code!) to: "As the tool runs it displays detailed progress information on the screen" ...


Hope this helps!
Best regards,
Raisor
