    Progress Bar


    I have written a simple file uploading system with apache and php.

    The main problem that I have is that the users have no way of knowing how much of the file has been uploaded.

    I know that I can't do this in php, but is it possible with js ? Any other language ?

    Any help appreciated.

    1. JS is not java. you are in the wrong forum. JS is being discussed in the HTML forum and I can tell you, you canīt do it with JavaScript.

    2. the "progress bar" from your subject is located in my browserīs status bar, about one third from the right side. (using IE)
    If your users canīt find it, sorry, they are too dumb. There is no way around writing a "real" dau-safe program ("assistent"). A ftp-manager or a http-upload manager. But you need to learn Java, C, Delphi or VB for that...

    I could'nt have been 100% clear. I don't mean the browsers progress bar.

    I am uploading the file with php, but as it is static, the browser just sits there until the upload is complete with no indication of progress.

    As the system will be receiving large files (the smaller ones will be in the 50MB range) i want to show something on the screen to indicate the progress of the upload.

    Clearer ??

    if you want to run it inside the browser:
    - flash (maybe)
    - signed java applet (definitively)

    from outside the browser, this is no problem though, just use any ftp client...
