Progress Bar Issue in JSP

Hello,

I have a JSP page which has a link for downloading. I have to show a progress bar when the user clicks on the link till the download box appears.

I have enclosed this link in a FORM tag, and the action for this tag is a Servlet which does the downloading part. Now since the action is not the same JSP, the progress bar isnt getting closed even after the download box appears. I cannot redirect to JSP page from the action servlet since the page takes a long time to reload.

How can I stop the progress bar without reloading the page again ?
Also, it is possible to reload the page parallely before the download box appears ?

Thanks,
Aditya

You can use AJAX for this purpose. On call back you can disable the progress bar, without reloading the page, using java script.

Hello D Toney,

I was thinking of AJAX , but I've never used it. Can you give an example as to how I can use it here ?

Thanks,
Aditya

Nothing to do with JSP -- moved to the HTML forum.

Hello,

I tried using AJAX for the same. Somehow I am unable to get the response from the servlet.

Since the server side code already sets the contenttype as text/csv ( Since it is the code to write to CSV file), I am not getting the reponse from the server.

How can I get a response in this case ?

Thanks,
Aditya

Without seeing your code, it is basically impossible to say why it fails.

Hello Eric ,

I need to do the following.

1: Click a link on the Jsp page to download to a CSV file.
2: After clicking this link, a progress animator should start till the download box appears.
3: The progress animator should get disabled once the box comes.

Now since the CSV downloading code is in a Servlet , we tried using AJAX for the same. But now the download box isnt coming. Following is the code sample we've tried.


JavaScript



Servlet Code




Kindly help,

Thanks,
Aditya
