Javascript: Page Status?


I am after 2 pieces of code:

1) I need a complete code snippet that indicates the current status of a window.

e.g. Window.ready / window.loading etc...

and it must display the message Window is ready or window is loading.

2) Is it possible to read from the status progress bar the exact percentage left / remaining of the progress of a loading page / window.

ie. Window 5% Loaded etc... and get this figure to update as the progress continues 5/10/15/20% Complete etc....

I could do with a complete code snippet for this two - Just makes it simpler :-)

Thanks in advance.

You can't get that kind of information.  Most all browsers these days have a progress bar.

You could add a method call to the body onload tag to display "Window Ready".  But IE already does this by giving you a "Document Done".

<body onload="window.status='Window Ready';">
