Terrific control! Many thanks for a great product!

I know that you can make a custom progress bar, but I'm trying to work with the existing progress dialog. I can't seem to make sense of the "Estimated Time" string. It seems logical that it would be x seconds of y seconds, where "y" is the total estimated time to upload ALL files in the batch. However, "y" changes wildly and, in fact, seems to be the estimated time to upload a SINGLE file.

It seems that existing dialog should display something like:

Estimated time to completion: "x"

where:

"x" is the estimated time left to upload the BATCH of files in time format (i.e.: 14:39). This is, in fact, all people _really_ care about when uploading lots of files.

Currently the problem with time estimation exists indeed because of inaccurate estimation algorithm. We will try to fix it in the next release.

By the way, you can modify estimation time label using param ProgressDialogEstimatedTimeText. By default it is

Code:
<param name="ProgressDialogEstimatedTimeText" value="Estimated time: [Current] of [Total]">


where [Current] and [Total] are placeholders for the values Image Uploader calculates. So if you change it, say, to

Code:
<param name="ProgressDialogEstimatedTimeText" value="Time left: [Current]">


it seems you will get what you want (excluding time format).

Hope this makes sense.

You should use iuembed.js syntax now:


Code:
iu.addParam("ProgressDialogEstimatedTimeText", "Estimated time: [Current] of [Total]");
iu.addParam("ProgressDialogEstimatedTimeText", "Time left: [Current]");

Hello Andrew,

We are still working with version 2.0 because the changes in 3.0 aren't big enough for us to spent a lot of time implementing the new version. We did purchase 3.0. I saw there is a new java version about to be released wich should work on a mac... any news on that ? Second question; We never got around adding the feature estimated time left of upload. Does this feature work in 2.0 ? According to the documentation it should but I wonder if it would work in combination with:

Code:
<PARAM NAME="FileUploadMode" VALUE="Separate">


I tried the following but it won't show any information on estimated time left when upload starts. Is there any line of code I have to add ?

First of all you should use iuembed.js syntax now. Also you should use FilesPerOnePackageCount property instead of FileUploadMode:

Code:
iu.addParam("FilesPerOnePackageCount", "1");

Hello Andy,

> We are still working with version 2.0 because the changes in 3.0 aren't big enough for us to spent a lot of time implementing the new version. We did purchase 3.0.


Version 3.0 is about to be released. It will be compatible with Image Uploader 2.x, so in theory you will need only update CLSID and CAB file. On practice you may need some tweaks if server-side script cannot process Unicode properly (most of ASP third-party upload components do have such problem). So implementating this version won't cause big problems.

> I saw there is a new java version about to be released wich should work on a mac... any news on that ?


Alas, we had to delay Java version. I guess we need at least few months before releasing it...

> According to the documentation it should but I wonder if it would work in combination with <PARAM NAME="FileUploadMode" VALUE="Separate">


It does work, however it is quite inaccurate (this problems stays in version 3.0). String

Code:
<PARAM NAME="ProgressDialogEstimatedTimeText" value="Resterende tijd: [Current] van [Total]"> 


should be enough to enable it. What do you see instead of this string?

BTW, I have noticed that you are using some localization parameters in old notation (with %s instead of placeholders). It is not supported even in version 2.0, so it is highly recommended to update these strings.
