Hi Experts,

I have perl script running and opening some html from it.
I have status page that displays process status like dynamicaly changing bar showing percentage of let say download done.
How do I display this status bar before opening destination page ?

Thank you.

This would be best done via Dynamic HTML and/or Javascript.

Tintin,

That's a great sample but....it is for ASP not for Perl. I will use it some day. I give you credit for that.
bUT.....what about my situation ? I have perl that opens pdf file in IE. Sometimes it takes 5-7 seconds and I need
to entertain user :). Please help.

Another thing is that I in fact open file on the server side without download to client.
May be it can be easier ?

Now, I'm confused.

So you open the file on the server side, then what do you want to do if the client isn't receiving it?

Client always gets either file or "not found" page. The question is how to show progress bar until page is actually opens ?

I'm not aware of any easy way to achieve what you are after.
