I'm sure I've read about this in a post before, but can't find it now...How can I, using a dialog, get a moving status bar?

I know I've not explained this very well, but what it is is something like this:

e.g.
Code:
at the start, you have 0% done:
 ---------------------------
|                           |
|Installation progress:     |
|                           |
|  --------------------     |
| |         0%         |    |
|  --------------------     |
|                           |
 ---------------------------

Half way though you have 50% done:

 ---------------------------
|                           |
|Installation progress:     |
|                           |
|  --------------------     |
| |[color:red]|||||||||[/color]50%        |    |
|  --------------------     |
|                           |
 ---------------------------

At the end, it's 100% completed:

 ---------------------------
|                           |
|Installation progress:     |
|                           |
|  --------------------     |
| |[color:red]|||||||[/color]100%[color:red]|||||||||[/color]|    |
|  --------------------     |
|                           |
 ---------------------------




I thought about using something on the lines of:
Code:
  edit "", 11, 10 31 10 10,
  edit "", 12, 18 31 10 10,
  edit "", 13, 26 31 10 10,
  edit "", 14, 34 31 10 10,

but don't know how to remove the borders around each as they overlap and show spaces between each editbox.

Also, if I used that, is there any way of changing the colour of the background? (I know you can set it inactive meaning text cannot be written into it)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just added a bit of colour!

MDX (Mirc Dialog eXtension) is probably the easiest solution to your problem
you can get it from: http://www.dim-bulb.net/~dragonzap/dlls/
this probably doesnt help much, but there ya go...
