Padre::Wx::Progress(3) Tell the user that we're doing something


my $object = Padre::Wx::Progress->new($title, $max_count,
modal => 1,
lazy => 1,
$object->update($done_count, $current_work_text);


Shows a progress bar dialog to tell the user that we're doing something.



    my $object = Padre::Wx::Progress->new(
        message => $default_message # optional
        modal => 1,                 # optional
        lazy  => 1,                 # optional

The "new" constructor lets you create a new "Padre::Wx::Progress" object.

$title is the title of the new box.

$max_count contains the highest item-number being processed.


A default message could be set (in case "update" should be called without text) with the message key. This is overridden by the newest "update" text. Default is an empty message.

Set modal to true to lock other application windows while the progress box is displayed. Default is 0 (non-modal).

Set lazy to true to show the progress dialog only if the whole process takes long enough that the progress box makes sense. Default if 1 (lazy-mode).

All options are optional, Padre will use fixed defaults if they're missing.

Returns a new "Padre::Wx::Progress" or dies on error.


    $progress->update( $value, $text );

Updates the progress bar with a new value and optional with a new text message.

The last message will stay if no new text is specified.
