I am moving 700mb .avi video files with FileMove.

Currently that part of my script goes

msgbox says please wait for a msg filemove complete

Filemove - moves the avi

Msgbox File Move Complete.

It takes around 15 - 20 seconds for the second popup to occur. Is there any way to use a progressbar to track

how long it will take to move the avi file? Like when you copy paste files in windows it shows the progress bar.

Method 1.

#Include <Misc.au3>
#Include <WinAPIEx.au3>

Global $hProgressRoutine = DllCallbackRegister('_Progress', 'int', 'uint64;uint64;uint64;uint64;dword;dword;ptr;ptr;ptr')

_WinAPI_CopyFileEx('D:\Test.tmp', 'C:\Test.tmp', DllCallBackGetPtr($hProgressRoutine), $COPY_FILE_FAIL_IF_EXISTS)
MsgBox(0, 'CopyFileEx', _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage())

Func _Progress($iTotalFileSize, $iTotalBytesTransferred, $iStreamSize, $iStreamBytesTransferred, $iStreamNumber, $iCallbackReason, $hSourceFile, $hDestinationFile, $iData)
    ConsoleWrite(Round($iTotalBytesTransferred / $iTotalFileSize * 100, 1) & '%' & @CR)
    If _IsPressed('1B') Then
        Return $PROGRESS_CANCEL
EndFunc   ;==>_Progress


Method 2.

; Windows - copy with progress
; Author - JdeB

;~ 4 Do not display a progress dialog box.  
;~ 8 Give the file being operated on a new name in a move, copy, or rename operation if a file with the target name already exists.  
;~ 16 Respond with "Yes to All" for any dialog box that is displayed.  
;~ 64 Preserve undo information, if possible.
;~ 128 Perform the operation on files only if a wildcard file name (*.*) is specified.  
;~ 256 Display a progress dialog box but do not show the file names.  
;~ 512 Do not confirm the creation of a new directory if the operation requires one to be created.  
;~ 1024 Do not display a user interface if an error occurs.  
;~ 2048 Version 4.71. Do not copy the security attributes of the file.
;~ 4096 Only operate in the local directory. Don't operate recursively into subdirectories.
;~ 8192 Version 5.0. Do not copy connected files as a group. Only copy the specified files.  


Func _FileCopy($fromFile,$tofile)
    Local $FOF_RESPOND_YES = 16
    $winShell = ObjCreate("shell.application")

Thank you for the code.

Method 1 works good for small files, but on large files it freezes gui until finished.

Is there a way use method 2 with multiple files so it would show only one window until finished copying all files?
