I'm developing an application that has a component that
checks an online database for updates. My question is, does anyone
know what xtra I should use to firstly download these files and
then secondly monitor the downloads, I also need to be able to
determine where the files are downloaded to on the users computer.
Ideally the user will be able to see the progress of the downloads
(the current file and the overall progress of all files being
downloaded). Whenever the application is updated there will be more
than one file to download.
I need a solution that works on windows and MAC OSX.
Any advice would really be appreciated. Thanks Jason
I don't think you need any third-party xtras. The DB query
be handled with getNetText(), the download with
(assuming projector and not Shockwave), and the progress with
getStreamStatus() (and a MIAW/MUI dialog?)
These are all functions of the NetLingo xtra.
