Progress bar / status bar creation inside HM

Recommended Posts


 I am creating a custom HM tab using  hm_framework.  In the GUI, I am planning to add a progess bar/status bar which should update during the process. As of now, I am able to create progress bar but unable to update it dynamically.



Is there any way to achive this?

In loop where you are changing % of progress bar, you need "update" command to refresh GUI


for {set i 1} {$i<100} {incr i} {

     set progress_percent $i; #at this time progress bar displaying not yet moved to i%

     update; #after updating GUI, progress bar move to i%



if loop is very long (millions of cycles), "update" will slow down script very much.

so I only "update" GUI once per 10000 cycles, help to save time while program is not frozen.
