I'm not sure I understand.
To show progress report information, a *client* needs to support it -
not just the *API*. From all the clients, only mysql command line client
and mytop support this at the moment. And the page says it.

C-API itself is not a "client", as far as I can see it, it's an API.
For example, Webyog is a client.

I think I misunderstood your question. I'm sorry.

You mean "whether C-API supports progress reporting" - and the answer is
"yes, absolutely".

But originally I thought you were asking "what is the C-API or this
feature, how one can add progress reporting support to his MySQL
client". And the answer was

because, indeed, the API is described there, in the Knowledge Base.
