The
progressbar doesn't support text overlay. I recommend putting a label above or
next to the progress bar and update it every time you change the progress bar. The
only other way to do this would be to manually paint the percentage on the
control after changing the progressbar's value. We are looking at creating a Control Set for this, so keep an eye out. David

FYI, PowerShell Studio (v3.0.8 and above) now has a ProgressBarOverlay control that will display a text percentage over the progress bar. David
