This technical note presents a versatile, text-based progress display system. It's easy to add to a database, and easy to run from your code. The progress window displays multiple lines of text that you can program to update independently, including any status information you choose. It's well suited for monitoring the details of a complex sequence of events. It can also help with troubleshooting complex code, by providing you with an updating display that summarizes events and conditions as they transpire. The final results of an activity can even be redisplayed after the process being monitored has expired. The technique demonstrates a practical use for a two-dimensional array, and shows how interprocess communication can be streamlined to suit specific requirements.
