Blackberry BrowserFieldListener downloadProgress

Blackberry BrowserFieldListener downloadProgress

The downloadProgress event for BrowserFieldListener never fires.

Let me repeat.

The downloadProgress event for BrowserFieldListener never fires.

So, this is causing me to put together a dirty hack. And it will work.

But once again, spending development time to fix documented Blackberry “features” that simply don’t work.

Like isFocus.

And now, downloadProgress.

  1. The dirty hack is essentially this: manually time how long it takes to perform your uploads / downloads; then, create a timer to update your progress bar based upon the length of time your average upload / download takes, independent of the actual state of your download.

    Far from perfect, but good enough in most cases.

    It just irks me that BB releases production code with such glaring issues like this.
