Currently I use in Delphi a TidFTP component to download file from "my" ftp server (filezilla)
To help the user waiting the download to finish, I first display a box indicating the size of the file that is to be downloaded.
But I would like to do more and better, it is, display a progression bar during the download.
Is this possible ?
How ?

While the solution might not be exactly as you need it, it provides enough code for you to tinker with to make it into your own solution.

I use Internet Component Suite. It is very powerful (think its better too) and main difference is that components are asynchronous in opposite - Indy components are synchronous. Suit comes with lots of examples. TFtpClient component have OnProgress event - which can be used like you want. I know Indy comes with Delphi but give a try another components ...
