I would like to scale a progress bar for smaller numbers. For example:

x = 0
y = 999999999

I would lke to update the progress bar such that you will see changes, i.e. progress even though the x is still small. In other words, x = 1000 will update the progress bar just a slightly even though it is not 1% of y.

Is that possible and how do you scale the progress bar for such a slight change?
