[Solved] bash output create file with dd /dev/zero with dialog –gauge

warhansen Asks: bash output create file with dd /dev/zero with dialog –gauge
I am trying to create a new file (blank file) with:

dd if=/dev/zero of=file.txt count=10240 bs=10240

I also want to use dialog output –gauge, something like this:

dd if=/dev/zero | pv | dd of=output.dat count=10240 bs=102400 iflag=fullblock | dialog --gauge "testing" 10 70 0

I have also tried variations of:

(pv -n /dev/zero | dd if=/dev/zero of=output.dat  bs=1000M  count=1) | dialog --guage "Creating a file..." 10 70 0

However it doesn’t work, is just lets me know when the file is completed.
