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 ?
