QuickBuild Progressbar #777

puneetg ·
Hi Robin

Once a build is fired a progressbar shows up between 0-100%, For my setup this is inaccurate. How do I control this progress bar by reporting accurate values in several stages of the build ?

thanks

Hi Puneet,

The progress is calculated by comparing current elapsed time against total time of last successful build. It is possible that it is inaccurate. Can you describe more about your idea of "control this progress bar by reporting accurate values in several stages of the build"?

Regards

Hi Robin

One option would be to return specifiers such as "Progress" as stdout for a build. Other option is to set max limits of progress at each stages (20,40,80,100), QB will not go beyond that threshold. Compilation is tricky and file based, (other factors such as node performance... etc) if QB can keep track of number of files compiled by parsing stdout, we can use that to calculate progress delta.

thanks
