Rather than staring at a blank screen or a static window that says "downloading", why not give your user an window that shows the progress as well as an estimated amount of time remaining? The one_line_progress_meter function does it all in 1 line, including having a name that tells you what it is.

This popup is designed to be the easiest progress meter function call ever made. No kidding. The requirement for this feature was that you shouldn't need to do any initialization outside your loop and shouldn't need to modify your loop itself beyond making this function call.

There are 3 basic parameters...

  1. The title for the window
  2. The current counter
  3. The maximum counter value


This meter is also designed so that you can use it to abort your loop. You'll learn how to use the cancel button in the later sections that detail the one-line-progress-meter.
