Returning progress messages during an async process

RSH
I have seen numerous examples of progressbars using ajax during long running
processes.

My issue is basically I have a long running process that must be implemented
using a web front end. My thoughts are to use a web service or WCF service
that will manage threading etc. I need to be able to return messages to the
user through the browser while the process is in action. Is it possible
through ajax to keep sending messages to the browser based on what is taking
place in the service?

Thanks for any ideas!

i have been working with vb6 for a while but never had the pleasure of using progress bars. That is until now, one of the programs i have written has just been modified so that large csv files of 100,000+ lines can be imported into a database. the import works fine but the progress bar feature is not working correctly. The progress bar is set to a max value of the number of records in the csv file, the records are then imported and the...

Sorry for repeated posting but I couldnt get things right/completely in the first post. I am in the process of deciding the IPC mechanisms to use for communication between 1) An application API (which would be set up as a NT service). It could be C++ or C#. The API as such might be talking to the underlying application (UA) via WM_COPYDATA messages.

Hi there I am working on a program where the user should be able to import some CSV files. With my set of test data, it takes about 2 minutes to import, while it is importing the program sort of freezes. Therefore i would like to open a little window with a progress bar in it that shows how far the import has come.

Alan, you can achieve this by using XMLHttp Async functionality in a javascript file. Create an aspx page in which execute long running SQL query, then do an XMLhttp post to that page from a js function. In the javascript create 2 funtion Call LoadData in the window onload event.

Hello I am trying to update a Progress bar on a form. I am able to update it via using a simple clock timer, but as soon as I perform a long operation G1 (generation of a report) in a separate form, it stops updating it, but keeps on incrementing the Progress bar values in the background and displays the updated Pbar after finishing the operation G1. My requirement is that it should update during the execution of operation G1. On...

Hi All, I think this is a thorny problem, and I'm hoping you can help. I've not found this exact issue described anywhere yet. I have a stored procedure that calls BULK INSERT on a set of text files. These files are FTP'd from a legacy system (a mainframe running MVS). Sometimes, the process steps on iteslf, whereby the bulk insert is attempted on a file whose FTP is still in progress; it's not fully written to disk on the SQL box...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
