    Hi everyone!

    For a site I will be working on, It will require people to upload large files. We don't want the users to think that nothing is happening, so we would like to be able to show a progress meter of the progress of the upload.

    The file will be submitted through a normal form on a page (or any other way possible through the browser).

    Is there a javascript progress bar I could use for this purpose?

    Thank You.

    JavaScript is not equipped for such requirements; at the same time, if you wanted to do something like this you would have to fiddle with the HTTP protocol and try and get an output from it (which is no mean feat by itself).

    In other words : technically, it's in the 'too hard' basket.
    My 2 Cents (or is that 2.2 Cents including GST?)
