URL Access and the Missing Progress Dialog

Q: When I call URLDownload or URLUpload in Mac OS X and specify the kURLDisplayProgressFlag as an option, why don't I see a progress dialog?

A: The progress dialog isn't being shown because of a bug in URL Access (r. 2719169). If you'd like to display a progress dialog on Mac OS X 10.1.x, you can use URLOpen and create your own custom progress dialog by following the example shown in the URLAccessSample code. Alternatively, starting with Mac OS X 10.2, you can use the kURLDisplayProgressFlag when calling URLOpen in order to display a progress dialog.
