Default How to tell the user that the program is working?


I am what a good way would be to show the user the program is doing some calculations and not that the program has stopped responding.

I tried to do a progress bar and put it in my for-loop but the thing is the for-loop went faster then the writing to the file. So the for-loop was done and progress bar showed that it was had finished but the writing to the file was still going so my program still looked like it was not responding so what can I do to make the progress bar more current of where it really is at.

The usual way is if you know how much data you are writing to the file to update the progress bar when you are a certain percentage of the way through.

If you don't know how long its gong to take to write the data to the file, or how much data there is then just start the progress bar from zero again and keep going till the writing has finished would be one way.
