DESCRIPTION

Curses::UI::Dialog::Progress is not really a dialog, since the user has no way of interacting with it. It is merely a way of presenting progress information to the user of your program.
See exampes/demo-Curses::UI::Dialog::Progress in the distribution for a short demo.

OPTIONS

-title < TEXT >
 
Set the title of the dialog window to TEXT.
-message < TEXT >
 
This option sets the initial message to show to TEXT. This message is displayed using a Curses::UI::Label, so it can not contain any newline (\n) characters.
-nomessage < BOOLEAN >
 
If BOOLEAN has a true value, the dialog window will not contain a message label. By default -nomessage has a false value.
-min < VALUE >
-max < VALUE >
-pos < VALUE >
-nopercentage < BOOLEAN >
-nocenterline < BOOLEAN >
 
These options control the progressbar of the dialog. For an explanation of these options, see Curses::UI::Progressbar.

METHODS

new ( OPTIONS )
layout ( )
draw ( BOOLEAN )
 
These are standard methods. See Curses::UI::Container for an explanation of these.
pos ( VALUE )
 
This method will update the position of the progressbar to SCALAR. You will have to call the draw method to see the changes.
message ( TEXT )
 
This method will update the message of the progress dialog to TEXT. You will have to call the draw method to see the changes.
