Is there any way to get color to show on a native scrollbar (used as a
progress bar for a download) on mobile? It show up with background fill
black with barely visible thumbnail blue going across, changing the
color in IDE has no effect on mobile.
I think there is a mobile control, but as far I can tell , it always in
relation to scrolling some other object, not a "standalone" progress bar.
The native scroll bar it pretty "ugly" and I would like the make the UI
bit close to what people are used to seeing.
[Side note: My goodness! I am using a function from the days of Scott
Raney, found in the first MetaCard IDE, 20 years ago... and it still
works Ha! How's that for xTalk viability! ]
But, how I would upgrade to modern UI?
This was always so simple:
*command*showProgress pURL, pStatus
*-- this is the status callback message which gets called regularly
during the download*
*-- pStatus will show some initialisation messages, then*
*-- using a graphical progress bar instead*
*-- ths first time this is called, find the total number of bytes that
are to be downloaded*
*-- use this info to set the span of the progress bar*
*-- wait until the download info is being received*
