Powershell GUI - ProgressBar

Hi, I am using AdminScriptEditor to make a GUI front-end for PowerShell.    
When I click a button, it will run the command:    
Get-MoveRequestStatistics -identity $user | select PercentComplete    

Which will return a number to indicate percentage (i.e. 53)

If I have a ProgressBar on the form, how can I have it take the number from the value returned from above (i.e. 53) and update the progress bar accordingly? And have it refreshing periodically?

#~~< progressMove >~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
$progressMove = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.ProgressBar
$progressMove.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Point(7, 175)
$progressMove.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(224, 23)
$progressMove.TabIndex = 9
$progressMove.Text = ""

You can try taking the value from move command and feed it as progress bar value.

$Percent = (Get-MoveRequestStatistics -identity $user).PercentComplete
$progressMove.Value = $Percent

Yeah that works I wonder if I can add code around it though so that it keeps refreshing the progressbar and other elements every few seconds until 100% complete

You could use a do while loop. I dont know if I have to enter the complete code within the loop or just the two lines that I gave in my last comment. I have not got time to test it.

do{
$Percent = (Get-MoveRequestStatistics -identity $user).PercentComplete
$progressMove = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.ProgressBar
$progressMove.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Point(7, 175)
$progressMove.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(224, 23)
$progressMove.TabIndex = 9
$progressMove.Text = ""
$progressMove.Value = $Percent
}while ($Percent -le 100)

Only thing I'm not sure on is if the Do While will be a good idea since the progress bar's going to move along really slowly, likely hours, and the window/script might freeze up.

How could I incorporate a "timer" to say, after I push the button, periodically (like every 30 seconds or so), re-run the command to get the value and update the progressbar.value (to reflect that new percent value we got)?
