Copying file via VB5/VB6

By jhibbits ·
How do I get access to the file copy function that Windows Explorer uses which displays the "Copying" dialog box with the progress bar and the flying sheet of paper from a VB app. I have been using the FileSystemObject but there is no visual feedback for the user.

The function you're looking for is the SHFileOperation API. The KB article below describes using this function from VB:

Hope this helps!
