Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am making a Console Application that will copy larger files (up to 2 GB) (with My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyDirectory) and I would like make a percentage indicator. I just want it to show the current percentage in numbers (ex. 23%). I'm new to Visual Basic and I have no idea how to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.

This question is best suited for Stack Overflow but:

My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyDirectory(folder, newlocation, FileIO.UIOption.AllDialogs)

will copy from folder to newlocation and display a progress bar.

Thank you. That's not exactly what I wanted, but thanks. –  David Dec 15 '12 at 19:57
Having re-read the question, I'm guessing you want to generate your own progress indicator. I have no idea but when this is migrated to Stack Overflow then someone will be able to help you. –  Richard Dec 15 '12 at 20:31
I have posted the same question on Stack Overflow –  David Dec 15 '12 at 22:11
