I am looking for some way to create a realistic progress bar to display during lengthy operations. How does an application know how much time is left to execute an operation in order to display a progress bar?
what i did was use an apriximate time. i know for each opreatin it could be from 40 sec to about 3 min depending on a lot of factors so i put a progress bar for 1 min.<BR><BR><BR>after each min it will check my db to see it the action was completed. the management i think like seeing things moving and i think that was the worst thing on my site......anywho the problem again with that is if it took 1 min and 10 sec it still will wait for another 50 sec before it cheks again.<BR><BR>
