DecSoft App Builder

Progress description

The Progress control allows to show to the user the progress of certain task, for example, we can use a Progress control that is show while we perform an HTTP call with the HTTP client control.

There is a Progress sample app included with the installation of DecSoft App Builder. Take a look to see this control in action!

Progress CSS rules

This control has a default style, and, some control JavaScript properties (see below), can also changes the control style, not to mention the Classes property, that you can use to establish one or more CSS classes to be applied to the control.

In addition to that style, you can also set custom CSS rules for the control by using the IDE controls style inspector. If this is not enough, you can include any number of CSS stylesheets in the app by using the app files manager.

If you want to use CSS stylesheets, you need to know how to refer to the control, so take a look at the Runtime selectors help topic.

Progress at designtime

The Progress control put at your disposition the below designtime properties or variables. Designtime means here that these properties are only available in designtime and not in runtime.

Progress at runtime

The Progress control put at your disposition the below runtime properties or variables. You can set almost all these variables in designtime, and, they are also available to be use when the app is running. Note that we named here these variables in a capitalized way, because is like you can see it in the designtime control's inspector, however, at runtime we use the lower camel case way.

Progress events

The Progress control put at your disposition the below events handlers:
