Hi Andrey, another good opportunity to advertise my packages... (freeware!) Go to http://web.telia.com/~u31815170/Mathematica/ and download the TaggedCells package. Install according to instructions. Open the Help Browser. Look beneath Add-ons and Links, TaggedCells, IntroductionTaggedCells, Overview. There a ProgressBar function defined, somewhat more fancy than that you are asking for. If you want to have it exactly in your style, you might use the AppendToTaggedCell command in the same package. Instead of Print["."] you just substitute AppendToTaggedCell[".", "Progress bar"]; , where "Progress bar" the CellTag setting off the cell you want to write to. (Such a cell will be created the first time you use the command, if it is not there already.) Alternatively you might use ExpressionToTaggedCell[i, "Output", "progress"]; if your iteration index is i. The package is still "beta", but these things definitely works.
