Upload status feature - El Forum - 07-24-2008

[eluser]jbads[/eluser]
Hi, I am looking to add a feature to my CI app which displays the current status of and upload (percentage or kbytes) to give my users a fairer understanding of how long their larger uploads are taking and so they dont think the system has stalled because of the apparent inactivity on larger uploads.

Could someone give me an indication of what technology I should be looking at. I get the feeling I should be looking at javascript. Has anyone had any experience with creating an upload feature before and have some info to share?

At the moment have built the upload function but feel its not very user-friendly. ie. It looks like it has stalled when in fact it is just processing.

Cheers,
Jake.
