Forum OpenACS Development: ad_progress_bar extension: Continuously update status information
The progress bar is nice to tell the user that things are happening, but e.g. in the installation I would like to show the user which package we are installing at the moment. The question I have though is "how".
Or is there an Ajax solution we could easily use?
An example of the ajax solution you are looking for could be found on the sample below
just click the "Show me" button under Progress dialog.
I can try and squeeze in a helper api in ajaxhelper to that widget when I update ajaxhelper later this week.
After upgrading/installing, please read ajax/doc/ on your local install for information about template::head.
The test that has a demo of the progress bar can be seen in ajax/www/tests/
I hope this helps. Good Luck !
