IProgressDialog Interface

Provides access to members that work with a progress dialog. Note: the IProgressDialog interface has been superseded by IProgressDialog2. Please consider using the more recent version.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


Instead of reporting the progress of an operation in the status bar of an ArcGIS application window, you can display a progress dialog box instead. The progress dialog box displays an animation and a step progress bar.

The IProgressDialogFactory::Create method to create and display a progress dialog box. Pass a CancelTracker object to the Create method to allow the user to cancel the process.

The IProgressDialog interface is the original interface for the progress dialog box. However, you should use the more recent IProgressDialog2 interface instead.
