Re: Progress Bar status indicator

Ben,

Thanks, that works. I took a few seconds for the message to appear, but that is a lot better than not appearing until after the file has been written.

Regards,

Re: Progress Bar status indicator

Thomas, I have tried my "crude" approach, though I have hit a hurdle that I think relates to background processing of stdio::write functionality. Firstly I send a message to the standard stdio outstream at the beginning of the process to the message window to inform the user to be patient. Then I se...

Re: Progress Bar status indicator

Thomas, Thanks for the above posts and all of the work you put into this. For the moment I will go to something a bit crude to give some very basic info, and come back to the problem after I have developed more of the fundamental aspects of my project idea. Good progress so far; a few more things to...

Re: Progress Bar status indicator

Martin, I have changed a few things as I wanted to output a text message rather than, for example, the current time. The first 10 characters of my message shows on the bottom toolbar where the timer used to show. To achieve this I created a fact to store my message at a time that was convenient for ...

Re: Progress Bar status indicator

Martin, Re the code display icon: I get none of these icons in my installation of VIP. I first installed the personal version a few months ago, then upgraded to the commercial version. I have played again tonight and I cannot see any of the icons you displayed re Code display, nor any of the other i...

Re: Progress Bar status indicator

Martin, I have tried this solution, though I have a problem when I go to display the progress bar. I can send you some code grabs, though I (stupid me) still do not understand how to encapsulate the code so that it is nicely readable. I have seen references to code/hash code symbols, but I have not ...

Re: Progress Bar status indicator

Martin, Thanks for the pointer to the progress files, though they are a bit obtuse and a little dated, at least to me. Maybe I am a bit "frazzled" after a day out with my grandchildren. That also makes me "dated". My current plan is to spend a few hours optimising my stream out code for greater effi...

Progress Bar status indicator

I would like to put a progress indicator on the project status bar. I have been experimenting with concepts for a project. So far so good. I have been able to stream quite large files in and out of my project. One of these processes requires a progress indication to the user because it takes a few m...

Re: convert unsigned 64

Martin, Thanks for the insight, though my problem seems to relate to a slightly different issue. ……... Tick = time::getTickCount, %unsigned64 bit::getUnsigned64bytes(Tick, Low, _High), ………. If I have the above two lines of code in a counter loop I get the following compile error: e504 The expression...
