Loading multiple files with FileReader() into browser memory

Claus Mygind

P: 571
I am attempting to load multiple files into the browser memory, but I don't seem to be able to overcome the timing issue between the first and second file.

For reference purposes, here are some links in case you are not familiar with "FileReader()". I think it is a part of HTML5

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/FileReader

and

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Usi...b_applications


Even though the files are not that big, the browser stalls out. I use FireFox 8 and a solution should be able to run on it.

I have tried a number of solutions
1) setTimeOut() method
2) reader.onloadend
3) status codes using reader.readyState==1

all I want to do here is load the result into an array for additional processing.

I use xml files with the extension .gpx I have included some sample data because I split the data using the .split() method for what I thought was the quickest processing. The sample data is both at the bottom of this post and in attached zip file. If you are uncomfortable downloading a zip file, use the data included and save them into files with the extention .gpx.

I know it is a timing issue because I halt program execution and restart with no problem. The end result should yield two elements in the grpWpt array. Wherein each is an array of waypoints.

Here is my sample code which will using the references above.

  396. Tennessee recently, and I thought they were kind of fun. The guy
  397. who hid the ones we found copied the idea from DP caches he'd found
  398. in Arkansas. We've brought the idea back to Illinois, and we hope
  399. you find these to be fun little driveups. They're typically in out

  748.       <groundspeak:long_description html="False">Retention Ponds:
  749. When a natural area is disturbed or developed, the rate at which stormwater from the site runs off changes.  To prevent flooding downstream, the stormwater is delivered to an area that can retain the water and then release it.  The release of this water is controlled as to not increase the runoff rate from the original undisturbed site.  They also provide an opportunity to improve the water quality by filtering out debris before it reaches the downstream creek, stream, river, or lake.  Properly designed retention ponds accomplish these goals.  Because these retention areas “take up space” they are designed to fit in any available “wasted” space, thus the pretty geometric shaped ponds seen in this multi.  
  750. Hope you enjoy the dumbed down explanation of retention ponds.

  1177.  
  1178. This is located at the south end of McDowell Grove Forest Preserve close to Fawell Dam. This is a very nice forest preserve. The dam is an excellent location to put a canoe or kayak into the West Branch of the DuPage River and enjoy a paddle through Naperville. A good take out is Knock Knolls Park. Only problem is water level. You have to catch it after a rain so there is enough water to get through but this area is also subject to flooding if we get too much rain and then the current as well as bridge clearances can be a challenge. There is a very nice trail over the dam and up the east side of the preserve.
  1179.  
  1180. If you want a nice hike, park in the forest preserve and hike the trail down the west side of the river. If you want a quick grab, park in the specified parking area.

  1320. the Chicago-Kansas City Expressway. The Illinois portion of the
  1321. Expressway is Illinois 110, and starts near Hannibal, MO., runs
  1322. north through Quincy, Macomb and Galesburg in western Illinois to
  1323. the Quad Cities area, and then runs east along I-88 and I-290 to

  1326. The Tri-State Development Commission, representing western
  1327. Illinois, northern Missouri and southeastern Iowa has been trying
  1328. to develop this expressway since the 1950s! I noticed these signs
  1329. not long after they went up, but it took a couple of months before
  1330. I finally researched them on the internet.&lt;br /&gt;

  1621. As I mentioned in my previous log, this gap is precisely because Aurora is planning ahead. 
  1622. Aurora has commercial plans for this stretch along Eola road, but my great neighbor simply likes her house and doesn’t want to move and see it razed thank you very much.
  1623. And of course she isn’t under any obligation to pay for a sidewalk across her property.
  1624.  
  1625. She joined us tonight for trivia at Paulies, and while we walked back home together I told her about Geocaching (she seemed intrigued) and we made the brief detour so I could show her the cache hidden on the back corner of her lot.
  1626.  
  1627. She though it was hilarious and thought it was a great conversation piece.
  1628.  
  1629. I hope this got her interested enough to look into Geocaching – I think she will love it.

  2095. you find these to be fun little driveups. They're typically in out
  2096. of the way places, and they shouldn't draw a lot of attention from
  2097. muggles. Almost all of these are quick and easy park and grabs, so

  2254. *The following story is just that, a story. None of this is true, just taking an idea from my favorite TV, Supernatural, and making a cache set out of it.*
  2255.  
  2256. A quick overview of Supernatural.
  2257.  
  2258. Supernatural is an American supernatural and horror television series created by Eric Kripke, which debuted on September 13, 2005 on The WB, and is now part of The CW's lineup. Starring Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester and Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, the series follows the brothers as they hunt demons and other figures of the supernatural.
  2259.  
  2260. What is a Devil’s Trap?
  2261.  
  2262. A Devil’s Trap is a mystical symbol that contains a demon and strips it of its power when the demon is inside of it. It looks like a pentagram, or a star in a circle.
  2263.  
  2264. In one of my favorite Supernatural episodes, “All Hell Breaks Loose Part 2,” it is revealed that gun maker Samuel Colt created a massive Devil’s Trap that covers hundreds of miles. He did this by creating five churches as the points of a star and connected them using iron rail lines to create the pentagram symbol with a Devil’s Gate, or gate to Hell directly in the center, therefore locking in and out all demons. That is what this cache set makes, just on a smaller scale.</groundspeak:long_description>

  3447.       <groundspeak:short_description html="False">You can park in Wal-Mart lot very close to the cache.</groundspeak:short_description>
  3448.       <groundspeak:long_description html="False">I was checking out this area and decided to hide a cache..At first I considered a LPC but there is already another LPC in this parking lot so I decided against that 1.  Besides that would just be 2 easy and I already hid an easy cache 4 or 5 weeks ago. I know that I have to be about 6 hundred feet away from the nearest cache and that puts me in the area just behind the Wal-Mart parking lot. Lucky for me there just happens to be 7 or 8 trees back there and they all look just perfect for hiding geocaches! The only problem is that the Wal-Mart building is surrounded by cameras!  There must be 9 or 10 cameras up there on top of the building just watching every corner of the parking lot.!!
  3449.  
  3450. So I searched and I searched and I think I finially found the perfect spot where I could hide a cache without being spotted by the cameras and arousing suspicion. 
  3451.  
  3452. You can park in the corner of the Wal-Mart within about 60 feet of the cache and if you proceed directly to the cache, you will be able to retreive it without being spotted.
  3453.  
  3454. But wait...There is a catch...This is a Spyderuser cache and I did not get my nasty reputation by hiding easy to spot caches. I will tell you that this cache is attached to an evergreen branch by a piece of heavy wire so that it will not fall off. I will also tell you that I have used a new cache container for this one and I think it is pretty sneaky. The container is small. It is a little bigger around than a roll of quarters but not big enough to fit a full size geocoin. There is a log book inside with a little note to the FTF. 
  3455.  
  3456. Coordinates are very accurate and I believe they should be for this type of hide. There are little pieces of trash scattered around so feel free to pick them up and carry them away so the next searcher does not have to search them.
  3457.  
  3458. When you find it, let me know if you like, and if the ratings are accurate.</groundspeak:long_description>
  3459.       <groundspeak:encoded_hints>Never trust a Spyder and the numbers mean nothing.. I'm just learning to count... I don't have many friends so email me and tell me you want to be my friend if you want a clue...</groundspeak:encoded_hints>

  3491.           <groundspeak:text encoded="False">We first looked for this cache a little over a year ago (7/17/2010).  I'm not sure why I didn't log a DNF, but that's what it was on that day. 
  3492.  
  3493. So we thought about this cache for the past year, and had a plan for our summer visit back to the area.  I am very glad that we were on the right track, otherwise we were out of ideas.  
  3494.  
  3495. We really enjoyed this adventure.  I have not laughed so hard at watching how excited my older daughter was at making this find today. I could hardly curb her enthusiasm.  Both daughters especially enjoyed this and will most likely report it as a notable summer activity once they get back to school.  Thanks for the hide.  
  3496.  
  3497. Now to the log.... We opened the cache to find chewed cud, which once was the log.  So we took the recommendations of previous finders and brought along the necessary stuff to do log maintenance.  Old log is in a sealed bad, in case the cache owner wants to try to dry it out and salvage.  Inside of the container was dried with a cloth.  A new log was started and is in a resealable bag.  Cache replaced to its original spot.  We will download a picture of the old log once we return home.
  3498.  
  3499. We did attract some attention when my wife was busily taking pictures of us in the process of searching and finding the cache.  He was watching from a distance, smoking a cigarette, thinking "What the hell are these people doing!  Should I help them, or just keep my distance?"  He kept his distance and we had fun!  He probably has a story to tell over dinner tonight.
  3500.  
  3501. Thanks to Spyderuser for making and placing this cache.  We like to have the occasional difficult find.  To all future cachers - don't give up, you will figure it out.  We did!!! [:D] [:X] [:P] [8)]</groundspeak:text>

Well I figured it out. It was just a matter of properly defining the "reader.onloadend" event and removing the file loop. I am sure there is a prettier way to write the code but the code below works quite well.

Additional validation has to be put in the code to verify some files were chosen. But that is minor stuff. Now at least I can go on processing.

Note this is a serverless HTML page. Just cut and paste the sample code above. If you don't want to limit yourself to .gpx files, just delete that "if" condition from the javaScript.
