I think first of all add a progress bar control to your project then calculate the total time to be taken to complete the required job and set it to maximum value of the progress bar. Now calculate elapsed time from start time as system time at start and (current system time - start time) as elapsed time which will be the current value of the progress bar. So elapsed time and remaining time will be displayed on progress bar.
If you have any other query please post the code to understand the problem exactly and give solution.

How to add Animation is not known to me. However I will try to find out and add progressbar to it. The code for progress bar u have written will only increase the value of progressbar irrespetive of file size or time to be taken.

Dear lee
Please see my submission at Planet-source-code named CopyFolder_PBar with following URL:


Certainly it will give you idea about using Progress Bar in your project.
