basically ?
before you start : save the starting time
when your done, (now - starttime) / filesize

// average in Kb/sec
function TimedDownload(Url, FileName: string): Double;
var aStartTime, aEndTime: TDateTime;
begin
  Result := 0;
  aStartTime := Now;
  URLDownLoadToFile(Url, FileName);
  if FileExists(FileName) then
    Result := SecondSpan(Now, aStartTime) / (FileSize(FileName) / 1024);
end;

I need the current download speed.
i need to show the download speed while the DownloadThread is active and downloading
the download thread code:

type

  TDownloadThread = class(TThread)

  private

  FURL: String;

  FFileName: String;

  protected

  procedure Execute; override;

  public

//  Downloading : Boolean;

  Progress : Int64;

  Duration : Integer;

  FileSize : Int64;

  DownloadPercent : Integer;

  FileName : String;

  URL : String;

  constructor Create(sURL,sSaveToFile: String);

  destructor Destroy; override;

  procedure URL_OnDownloadProgress(Sender: TDownLoadURL;

  fProgress, fProgressMax: Cardinal;

  StatusCode: TURLDownloadStatus;

  StatusText: String; var Cancel: Boolean);

  end;
 

implementation
 

uses

  Main;
 

{ TDownloadThread }
 

constructor TDownloadThread.Create(sURL: string; sSaveToFile: string);

begin

  inherited Create(False);

  FURL := sURL;

  FFileName := sSaveToFile;

  FreeOnTerminate := True;

end;
 

procedure TDownloadThread.Execute;

begin

  with TDownloadURL.Create(nil) do

  try

  URL:= FURL;

  FileName := FFileName;

  OnDownloadProgress := URL_OnDownloadProgress;

  ExecuteTarget(nil);

  finally

  Free;

  end;

end;
 

destructor TDownloadThread.Destroy;

begin

  //Downloading := False;

end;
 
 

procedure TDownloadThread.URL_OnDownloadProgress(Sender: TDownLoadURL;

  fProgress, fProgressMax: Cardinal;

  StatusCode: TURLDownloadStatus;

  StatusText: String; var Cancel: Boolean);

begin

 // Downloading := True;

  Progress := fProgress;

  FileSize := fProgressMax;
 

 if (Progress > 0) and (fProgressMax > 0) then

  DownloadPercent := Trunc(((fProgress / fProgressMax) * 100));
 

  FileName := FFileName;

  URL := FURL;

end;

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

the download speed average is the total downloaded divided by the total time
when you need to find the speed at that moment
you will monitor it over a certain amount of time (delta time)
in this time frame you will have downloaded a portion (delta download)
download speed at that moment (delta download / delta time)
providing delta time > 0

you need to tell the main form how much is downloaded and how fast it is going ...
for this you will send back info to the main form
for this i use a callback thread

your using your main form in your thread uses ... this will solve that problem too :)
type

  TCallbackProc = procedure (aMessage: string; aMessageInfo: Integer = 0) of object;

 

  TCallbackThread = class(TThread)

  private

    FCallBack: TCallbackProc;

    FCallbackMsg: string;

    FCallbackMsgInfo: integer;

    procedure SynchedCallback;

  protected

    procedure DoCallback(aMsg: string; aMsgInfo: integer = 0); virtual;

    property Callback: TCallbackProc read FCallback;

  public

    constructor Create(aCallback: TCallbackProc; CreateSuspended: Boolean = False); reintroduce; virtual;

  end;

 

  TDownloadThread = class(TCallbackThread)

  private

    FURL: String;

    FFileName: String;

    FProgress: Int64;

    FDuration: Integer;

    FFileSize: Int64;

    FDownloadPercent: Integer;

    fLastTime: TDateTime;

    fLastDownloaded: Int64;

  protected

    procedure Execute; override;

  public

    constructor Create(aURL,aSaveToFile: String; aCallbackProc: TCallbackProc); reintroduce;

    destructor Destroy; override;

    procedure URL_OnDownloadProgress(Sender: TDownLoadURL;

      aProgress, aProgressMax: Cardinal;

      StatusCode: TURLDownloadStatus;

      StatusText: String; var Cancel: Boolean);

  end;

 

implementation

 

{ TCallbackThread }

 

constructor TCallbackThread.Create(aCallback: TCallbackProc; CreateSuspended: Boolean = False);

begin

  inherited Create(CreateSuspended);

  FreeOnTerminate := True;

  FCallback := aCallback;

end;

 

procedure TCallbackThread.DoCallback(aMsg: string; aMsgInfo: Integer = 0);

begin

  FCallbackMsg := aMsg;

  FCallbackMsgInfo := aMsgInfo;

  Synchronize(SynchedCallback);

end;

 

procedure TCallbackThread.SynchedCallback;

begin

  if Assigned(FCallback) then

    FCallBack(FCallbackMsg, FCallbackMsgInfo);

end;

 

{ TDownloadThread }

 

constructor TDownloadThread.Create(aURL, aSaveToFile: string; aCallback: TCallbackProc);

begin

  inherited Create(aCallback, False);

  FURL := aURL;

  FFileName := aSaveToFile;

  fLastTime := Now;

  FreeOnTerminate := True;

end;

 

procedure TDownloadThread.Execute;

begin

  DoCallback('Starting download of ' + fUrl + '/' + fFileName, 0);

  with TDownloadURL.Create(nil) do

  try

    URL:= FURL;

    FileName := FFileName;

    OnDownloadProgress := URL_OnDownloadProgress;

    fLastTime := Now;

    fLastDownloaded := 0;

    ExecuteTarget(nil);

  finally

    Free;

  end;

  DoCallbakc('Download finished', 10);

end;

 

destructor TDownloadThread.Destroy;

begin

  //Downloading := False;

  inherited Destroy;

end;

 

procedure TDownloadThread.URL_OnDownloadProgress(Sender: TDownLoadURL;

  aProgress, aProgressMax: Cardinal;

  StatusCode: TURLDownloadStatus;

  StatusText: String; var Cancel: Boolean);

  deltaDownloaded: Int64;

begin

  // Downloading := True;

  fProgress := aProgress;

  fFileSize := aProgressMax;

 

  if (fProgress > 0) and (fFileSize > 0) then

    fDownloadPercent := Trunc(((fProgress / fFileSize) * 100));

  // Show percent complete  

  DoCallback(FloatToStr(fDownloadPercent), 1);

  // Show speed 

  deltaDownloaded := fProgress - fLastDownloaded;

  DoCallback(FloatToStr(deltaDownloaded / 1024 / SecondSpan(Now, fLastTime)), 2);

  fLastTime := Now;

  fLastDownloaded := fProgress;

end;

oh yeah, here is how you create the proc from the main thread

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ProgressBar1: TProgressBar;
    LabelMessage: TLabel;
    LabelSpeed: TLabel;
  private
    fThread:  TDownloadThread;
  protected
    procedure DownloadMsg(aMessage: string; aMessageInfo: Integer = 0);
  public
    procedure StartDownload(aUrl, aFileName: string);
  end;

procedure TForm1.StartDownload(aUrl, aFileName: string);
begin
  fThread := TDownLoadThread.Create(aUrl, aFileName, DownloadMsg);
end;

procedure TForm1.DownloadMsg(aMessage: string; aMessageInfo: Integer = 0);
begin
  case aMessageInfo of
    0: LabelMessage.Caption := aMessage;
    1: ProgressBar1.Position := Round(StrToFloat(aMessage));
    2: LabelSpeed.Caption := Format('%.2f kb/s', [StrToFloat(aMessage)]);
  end;
end;
