Download time progressbar

4 posts in this topic

The regular progressOn works by adding a "Sleep" before it proceeds, but i want to make a script that shows a progressbar on a file you are downloading, so when you have downloaded 10% of the file size, it shows 10 in the progressbar...its that possible at all?

You don't make any sense. Are you trying to update the progress bar?


Who else would I be?

You're obviously not using the unstable, otherwise you would see that the example for InetGet() shows how to do just this very thing (Only it uses a TrayTip* instead of a ProgressSet, but thats an easy change). This isn't possible with the stable, URLDownloadToFile().

* Devs: I wouldn't use TrayTip in any example except the TrayTip example. The same goes for WinSetTrans and any other Windows 2000\XP only functions I may be forgetting. Since those functions won't work on all versions of Windows, I feel they should be kept out of examples so that what is there in the example will always work on all systems. Basically what I'm trying to say is, I think it might cause confusion if a new user tries to run that example on a version of Windows prior to 2000 and then the example doesn't work.
