[REQUEST] Multiple File Copy with Progress Bar

7 posts in this topic

I have looked and looked and either I am 1.) blind or 2.) it hasn't been posted. I have progress bars with copying files working, but I need to do multiple file copies. The file list will come from user-input, NOT a range (no wildcards like *.jpg or anything).

Any suggestions? Links? Code?

Thanks in advance.

Do you want multiple progress bars or like an "overall progress" progress bar and a "current file being copied" progress bar?

"Overall"

Just as if you drag 10 files from one folder to another... A progress bar for the entire file list being copied.

Reason Needed: At work, we pull files from a server. Right now, you type in a part number and it pulls the file from the appropriate location. These are large files, so it would be great to type in many part numbers and have them all copy at once in a single function. I can do the rest of the code; I just can't figure out the damn mulitple copy part. It has to have a progress bar because not all of the co-workers are computer-savy, and will proceed to work thinking the file is done.

Have you tried getting the file size of all the files, then add them together?

NOTE: I don't know how the progress bar works, I think it has to do with percentage of size copied. Am I wrong?

I am going to try doing it a different way than through Windows... but if anyone flat out KNOWS how to do this, then still post.

Thanks BA-LA.

Actually, last time i used it (progresson progressoff or something like that isnt it?) i had a variable to specifiy and i could manipulate the values to achieve the desired effect.
