New! Super-Cool Uploads Progress Bar

June 16, 2010

Web-form-buddy‘s popular file upload option now comes with a built-in customizable progress bar. This displays real-time stats to your customer as they wait for their files to upload. Updating every second or two, it shows:

  • A horizontal bar representing the progress of the file upload.
  • The size of the selected file.
  • The percentage completed.
  • The estimated time remaining.

We think this is a cool feature that will impress your customers!

To configure the color and style settings for your progress bar, log in to Web-form-buddy and go to “global options” >> “color & style settings” >> “upload progress bar“.

Technically this feature has proved to be quite a challenge. It has involved working with Javascript and CSS in the browser, and Perl and Apache on the server. A true “Ajax” application!
