How to tap into the progress scope for publish collection updating

Apr 22, 2012 6:16 AM

By default, Lightroom puts up a progress scope:


title: Updating Published Collections

caption: Updating Publish Collection


I'd like to replace it with a better one, or at least modify the caption.


Any ideas?

    Hey Rob,


    I do this:


      local progressArgs = {

                  ["title"] = "This is the main title",



      local progress = exportContext:configureProgress(progressArgs)


      for i, rendition in exportContext:renditions() do

            --- whatever

          progress:setCaption("This is the small text below the progress")

    I think the problem lies in the fact that, in the case of publishing, the progressScope that you have access to in processRenderedPhotos() is a child of the scope being displayed in Lightroom (the scope being displayed shows the progress of the entire publish operation, spread over one or more published collections, with processRenderedPhotos() being called once for each collection).  In the case of a "normal" export, the scope you get and the one being displayed are one in the same.


    I realize this doesn't help, but at least may give you some insight into what (I think) is going on.
