Hi All,

I am using a Dojo SortableTable in my application.When I perform some search on one of the columns, datta will be populated from data base. During this elapsed time, A progress bar is shown.

The problem is after getting the data to the browser, it performs a parse on the data, this parsing takes lot of time during which the progress bar is just stable for considerable amount of time.

So I wanted to make current thread sleep in the parse function of JS during iterations. I hope during that sleep time, the CPU time would be given to the progress bar.

If any one has got some information, please suggest me.

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,
Sandeep.

JavaScript has no concept of threading.

Hi Bear Bibeault,

First of all Thanks for your response.
But is there any way I could make my progress bar move during parsing?

Thanks/Sandeep.
