A new version of
jsProgressBarHandler is avaiable. Changes are a minor bugfix when handling the internal queue when animation was set to
false and an update of Prototype to the latest version (184.108.40.206)
jsProgressBarHandler all about?
So, what has changed?
In version 0.3 an internal animation queuing system was introduced to
jsProgressBarHandler, preventing the progressbar from freaking out when multiple simultaneous (viz. on the very same moment) calls to
setPercentage() were made. With that queue
jsProgressBarHandler will push all percentages on that queue, and process them one by one. Version 0.3.1 is maintenance release to fix an issue with this queue when no animation was used (the bug being that the queue wasn’t cleared properly). Credits go to Jamie Chong for spotting this one!
Anything else has changed?
Nopes, except for the fact that the
jsProgressBarHandler release now sports Prototype 220.127.116.11 🙂
Cool, is there a demo?
TIP: At the multicolor bar at the bottom, click that -icon a few times to see the internal queue in effect 😉
Please note that next to the demo above even an AJAX demo exists!
Where can I download it?
WARNING! This version is outdated!
Grab the latest version over at the jsProgressBarHandler Project Page
Wow, you’re going to fast: I have a question, I need help, I need more info, how do I configure this thing?
Don’t worry my friend, there’s a full page here on bram.us devoted to
jsProgressBarHandler where you can find all info about it.
I’m attempting to use your nice progress bar in conjunction with a PHP mysql query. As it iterates through each line of the query, it gets a total percentage and then types out a tag like so:
This results in an error myJsProgressBarHandler is not defined. Help? I really want to use your bar, but there’s no directions anywhere on how to make it update dynamically besides those onclick actions in the source.
@Elanor: that isn’t be possible as the output PHP generates is pushed to the browser when it has finished processing it all. This can be bypassed when using the output control functions, which I suggest you investigate/study a bit 😉
