upload progress bar

Post by piripacchio » 2010-04-28 08:44

Hi all,
once upon a time there was a plan for MX Kollection 4 somewhere.
One of the new planned feature was "upload progress bar" for nextensio form.
Then, adobe destroyed this dream and we are stuck with Kollection 3.
So, what can we do to get a progress bar for a file upload nextensio form?
I need to create a file management system and this is the last step I need to accomplish.

Any idea?

TIA to all (!).

Tony

I need to do the same for a project, my client doesn't seem to realise he needs to wait after clicking the upload button.

Will post a solution when I have it working.

Re: upload progress bar (workaround 1)

I tried to use the DW show/hide layers and I was "quite" satisfied.
When a user click the insert/edit/delete button a layer (z-index: 9999) is shown. This layer contains an image a and a text saying "uploading in progress, please wait!".

But If you have a validation rule on the form and there are validation errors in the form, the layer is shown over the form :cry: .

Is there a way to show this layer only after submitting the form but before uploading related files?

TIA

I found a simple working solution to my uploading progress bar with validation included:
I simply added the show/hide layer to the form and not to the buttons.
So, you get <form [already existing interakt code] onsubmit="MM_showHideLayers('Layer1','','show')"> .

This way you can use interakt validation to validate fields. The uploading progress bar is not shown when there are errors in the form.
But it shows correctly after you submit the form succesfully.

Hi Tony,
Is this a actual progress bar or just an image saying "Upload in progress" or something.

I am trying to implement a jquery progress bar that will show the actual progress but don't have much success yet.

No, it's not an actual progress bar.
It is, as you said, an image saying that the upload is in progress. At least, this prevent the user to close the window before the upload completes.

I hope you get a real progress bar soon ;)
I think that this will help lots of users with the same problem.
It's a pity that adobe stopped MX Kollection 4.

Ciao ;).
