Package org.netbeans.api.progress Description

This API allows to visualize tracking for progress of long lasting tasks.

The usual usecase goes like this:

ProgressHandle handle = ProgressHandle.createHandle("My custom task");
...
// we have 100 workunits
// at this point the task appears in status bar.
handle.start(100);
...
handle.progress(10);
...
handle.progress(50);
...
// at this point the task is finished and removed from status bar
handle.finish();

There are several options on how detailed visualization you want. All these usecases are supported by methods of ProgressHandle class. Additionally it's possible to include textual information about current progress.
If the task allows to be cancelled by the user, then you have to implement Cancellable interface and pass it to the ProgressHandle when creating the handle.
