Internet Explorer 11 Progress Bar
« on: February 07, 2016, 10:04:36 pm »
I've tried to search for some script examples of Winbatch on adding a Progress Bar on IE while the page loads; as the Progress Bar has
been removed by Microsoft as I understand.
Is this possible at all with Winbatch? I didn't want to use 3rd-party plug-ins but wanted to explore this instead through winbatch  - thanks

MSFT removed the progress bar from IE for a reason.  It wasn't all that accurate.    To create one using WinBatch you would have to attach to a running IE process using one of the several techniques demonstrated in  the Tech Database, set up one or more events to respond to a navigation, get the IE status bar window handle with Control Manager, and then add something to it that looks like a progress bar.  Hardly seems worth it.

That is what the Tech Database is for.  There are examples for most of the parts you would need to mash together.   However,  I am not sure that you would succeed in ever obtaining the your desired goal. So given the amount of effort involved and dubiousness of the outcome, you might want to consider a canned plug-in alternative.
