I've come up with an idea of how to implement a circular progress bar and I thought I might share it with you all.
Reminds me a lot of the infographix aero design:
There's a dual circle progress bar in there.
BTW, that guy does crazy UI work in FM. I can see why he gets a screenshot into devcon presentations almost every year.
Pretty cool idea. I added a test button so you could see a cool animation. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, interesting technique with the chart!
Why, that's lovely!
Yeah, I absolutely love his designs. But my solution is intentionally 100% filemaker, no Photoshop CPU time was sacrificed for building it
Once you get the idea you can alter it into whatever color, size etc you want and stay Filemaker only.
Should you prefer a linear progress bar instead... here's one, also 100% Filemaker - and I can't immagine something more "essential" than this. Can you ?
There are several progress bar techniques... Here's one I did a while back with animated GIFs.
and another newer one that uses the new Base64Decode function in FileMaker 13.
All interesting. Keys: You want something easy to implement and that works well on FileMaker cross platform, FileMaker Go, and WebDirect. I believe all these solutions do.
Kind of prefer this. Thanks for this
It says the link is broken do you still have this example ?
The site changed, but Tim's example redirected for me to:
the link is not broken, I just click the link and work.
this is the link: https://community.filemaker.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/74519-1-37803/CircularProgressBar.fmp12.zip
I think he was referring to the first, Dropbox link, that Tim provided. That's the one that seems to be broken. Gives a file not found error, as if it was moved or privacy was changed.
Sorry about that, by the way I check this link and is working. (you should check another browser "just a suggestion")
I hope this is the one that everybody is talking about.
Yes Edward I was refering to first one
Im looking for Circular progress Bar in Webviewer. And didnt find any.
Note that charts don't work in runtimes, if that is a concern. Still, I like this technique, and you could build on it to create a donut graph with separate data in the center, ect... Of course I like web viewer graphs for this as well, since they are much better if you need to show animation or be directly interactive. Nice work.
Thanks, @bmera, but those are not the links to which we are referring. In the second reply on this thread, @timcimbura posted a modification that he made to the nice file originally posted. His Dropbox link refers to a file that is no longer available to the public.

The D3 JS library has a lot of options. Check out the demos.
What you "need" is something a little more animated.
