Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
I need to get the progress of the upload to Dropbox to mount a progress bar (JProgressBar).
Is how to do this or do I have to give a manipulated into things? hehehe
I would like to expose a progress bar on my iOS app using the SwiftyDropbox API to upload a file.
Currently I can only update the progress bar when a file completes a upload so the resolution is very poor. Is there a way to get finer detail about bytes transferred periodically.
The only way I can think about doing this is to use the session upload. I don't see this as being a great solution. It would be great if there were an example of doing this somewhere (i.e. splitting up the file, and sending it using a session.)
Ray, I have a sample of registering a progress callback for files.download in SwiftyDropbox here:
It should work the same way for files.upload.
There's also a sample of using upload sessions here:
Hi Girum, this thread is posted in the "API Development" forum, for programmers using the Dropbox API.
It sounds like you're trying to share some feedback regarding one of the Dropbox apps, so you'd be better served by opening a new thread in the "Production Feedback" forum:
