I'm not familiar with -waitbar-. 

You could moderate the -display- by conditioning, e.g.

forval i = 1/1000 { 
	if mod(`i', 100) == 0 {
		display 100 * `i'/1000 "% done" 
	}
}

If the code was otherwise done -quietly- you would need to prefix it
-noisily-.

Does anyone know of a way to produce either a graphical or numeric
display 
in the STATA results window, that indicates the progress when running a 
program with a loop function in it (ie. to indicate the proportion of
total 
iterations currently complete, when using a command such as -forvalues i
= 
1/`iterations'- ...)

I can use -display- to provide a cumulative percentage, but would prefer
if 
the printed result could overwrite the last text rather than a
ridiculous 
build up of numbers in the results window.

If it helps, this would be something equivalent to the 'waitbar'
function 
in Matlab.
