Active X Progress Bar
Posted 15 March 2005 - 10:56 PM
You can only have active x on screens.
How do you communicate from an update (long running) to a screen and update the progress bar?
Same for long running reports.
Any help would be really appreciated.

Deep from Proiv made a few suggestions but could not provide any examples.
I read some where that Oracle has a way of dispalying a progress bar from a stored procedure.
My DBA is looking into that. If he is successful, I will convert long running update to stored procedures.
The results of the stored procedure will feed our reports.

If at the start of the process you run a screen to display the progress bar and then run the update
you can flag the control as persitant you could then call a skinny screen that has the control flagged as
handler. This will allow the screen to interact with a control created by another screen. The tag names should
be the same within both functions. The only down side to this is that a screen is being executed every time
you want to update the progress bar so don't call it every iteration but as a factor.

In VIP, there is a progress bar during the Import / Export. Does anyone know how this is accomplished? Mark
The VIP progress bar is a global function that displays and updates the control and is called repeatedly from
a managing screen function that is also calling the update processes. There is too much VIP baggage to post the
function and dependencies. I will try to create an example using Bill's code to avoid confusion.
