Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

          Can't to my knowledge, xbasic has no 'flush' command to push out data as it's processed.

            You'd have to break the XBasic processing into chunks... if that's possible. At the end of the 1st part, you send back javascript which updates a progress bar and then fires off another callback with parameters to process the next chunk. At some point you're finished processing and so you send back just a progress bar update. Does mean a few callbacks, though... and not every process is right for it.

              Why not just use preloader gif until ready.

                Thnks David. I have tried this method.

                - dim myend = mystart (ex: start from 1)
                1. Select to my table, for example I have 100 rows.
                2. create array to store my data , for example arr[].id, arr..].itemname
                3. do my proccess with arr[myend].id and arr[myend].itemname
                4. DoCallbackProcess = DoCallbackProcess + "$svs('mydiv','" + myend + " of " +mycount + " records completed...');"
                DoCallbackProcess = DoCallbackProcess + "$('mybar').style.width = '" + percent + "%';"
                5. DoCallbackProcess = DoCallbackProcess + "setTimeout(function(){{grid.Object}.ajaxCallback('G','{Grid.RowNumber}:all','DoCallbackProcess','','start=" + convert_type(myend+1,"C") + "');},100);"
                6. repeat from 1 with myend variable = myend+1
                it's work. But the ajax callback will start from first line again, select all data , create a whole array again although I only need to proccess the arr[myend+1] data. This make xbasic proccess very slow.

                  Ken, you mean something like a5w.messagebox('please wait....') when processing xbasic? I use this method until now. But my client not patient because it doesn't show the actual progress.

                    Good lord... you're not doing a callback for each row... are you?

                    100 rows... 100 callbacks? That's just a really bad idea.

                    Without doing any of this... how long does your XBasic processing take? I remember re-working some email processing code where the original code was creating array after array of the essentially the same data... over and over and over. Took 20 mintues to process 3,000 rows. Once I finished removing all the crap I had it down to less than 20 seconds... and most of that was communication with the server.

                    So... I hope your example of 100 rows is just that... an example. You should be processing thousands of rows and sending back and message and then processing the next chunk of thousands of rows. Processing 100 rows does not qualify for a record by record progress bar update.

                      I mean animated gif.

                      If your client is only happy with progress bar you can do progress bar totally in client side and replace it with preload gif when your progress bar is in 80-90%. (progress bar has nothing to do with the actual server process)

                        However, note that for many processes, it is impossible to even calculate how long it will last or what % is complete.

                          Thanks Andy, I got a new perspective now. I will not showing the actual proccess percentage.

                            David,

                            Can you give an example of the javascript you return for the progress bar. I've been trying out a few different types of progress bars, some very simple...

                            Code:
                            var prog = '<div> <progress value="25" max="100"> </progress> </div>';
                            {dialog.Object}.setValue('PROGRESS_PERCENT',prog);
                            and some a little more slick looking....

                            Code:
                            {dialog.Object}.showContainerWindow(this,'WINDOW_1');
                            var prog = '<html><title>Bootstrap Example</title><meta charset="utf-8"><link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css"><script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script><script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script></head><body><div class="container"><div class="progress"><div role=progressbar aria-valuenow  =0 class="progress-bar progress-bar-striped active" aria-valuemin=25 style="WIDTH: 25%" aria-valuemax=100> 25% </div></div></div></body></html>';
                            {dialog.Object}.setValue('PROGRESS_PERCENT',prog);

                            I just haven't gone to the next step of bringing the javascript back from the xbasic function and updating the progress bar. I'm currently just using a window container with a static text box that I'm injecting HTML into. Any suggestions?

                            Andrew

                              I'd probably do some things a bit differently today, but this still runs nicely. It's using jQuery for the progress bar.
