View Full Version : Event Based Progress Bar

Script: Win XP Progress Bar

Sorry if this is a silly question, but can this bar actually come up while the browser is processing something (via a third party), or is it that the script shows a progress bar first and then executes an action?

On an order page we have, the "Finalise Order" button is set up as:

<a class="category" href="JavaScript:SubmitOrder()">Finalize Order</a>

But I'm confused about how (if) I can alter that line so that when someone clicks on Finalise Order it shows the progress bar while it actually finalises the order. Is this the line where the script would go? how? Or does the script go elsewhere? Or am I completely on the wrong track?

I understand all the head info stuff, and the .js file is on the server, it's just the calling of the script so that it appears while the order is processed...

Ah, I know what you mean - I even had a go at this one!

Here's the page I did it on:

As you can see, when a download link is clicked, the download will be processed and the bar appears for a length of time, then hides again. Is this what you want? If so, have a look at the source code, it's quite easy to understand how to customise it.

You could increase the value of the controlling integer via an event...
A better idea would be to have the bar in a seperate window, so it doesn't go away if the page changes.
