public static void DisplayProgressBar(string title, string info, float progress);


Displays or updates a progress bar.

The window title will be set to title and the info will be set to info. Progress should be set to a value between 0.0 and 1.0, where 0 means nothing done and 1.0 means 100% completed.

This is useful if you perform any lengthy operations in your Editor scripts or wizards, and want to notify the user about the progress.
