I would like to have the smart client call a web service via background thread, and report the progress. I have a progress bar subscribing to the event I want to publish. I'm just not sure how to capture the progress time of the background thread. The EventBroker quick start has an artifical time looping through a list of customers, rather than a real world call to get data from a web service.

I came across one msdn article about a soap extension that intercepts the packets of the web service, but I don't think it's applicable to the smart client model.

Anyone done this? Or do you just update a status label only when processing data?
