Download progress using HTTP or JavaScript?

Download progress using HTTP or JavaScript?

Looks like the Java SDK has a progress listerner for downloads. Is there a way to get download progress updates in the JavaScript SDK or via the HTTP API? Perhaps there is a way to get a stream or a URL template so we could use XMLHttpRequest directly?

Aha! Problem resolved using get_temporary_link and my own download code using XMLHttpRequest.

Thanks for following up. I'm glad to hear you already found a solution.

 

For reference, the official Dropbox API v2 JavaScript SDK doesn't offer native progress listeners for the standard download methods, but I'll pass this along as a feature request. I can't promise if or when that might be implemented though.
