Getting the upload progress during file upload using Webclient.Uploadfile

I have an app that uploads files to server using the webclient.
I'd like to display a progressbar while the file upload is in progress.
How would I go about achieving this?

WebClient.UploadFileAsync will allow you to do this.

WebClient webClient = new WebClient();
webClient.UploadFileAsync(address, fileName);
webClient.UploadProgressChanged += WebClientUploadProgressChanged;


void WebClientUploadProgressChanged(object sender, UploadProgressChangedEventArgs e)
        Console.WriteLine("Upload {0}% complete. ", e.ProgressPercentage);

Note that the thread won't block on Upload anymore, so I'd recommend using:

 webClient.UploadFileCompleted += WebClientUploadCompleted;


 void WebClientUploadCompleted(object sender, UploadFileCompletedEventArgs e)
     // The upload is finished, clean up
