FaviconProgressindicator

Displays the progress as a favicon

Rating

This component comes in handy if you for example have several tabs open in your browser and waiting for a task to complete. The favicon in the browser tab will show a pie chart representing how far your task has progressed.

FaviconProgressindicator extends Vaadin's ProgressIndicator and should work with any version of Vaadin7 (that is not beta).

Sample code

		final FaviconProgressIndicator pi = new FaviconProgressIndicator();
		pi.setPollingInterval(1000);
		pi.setValue(0f);

		layout.addComponent(pi);

// Here we create a background thread that tells how much progress is left:

		Runnable r = new Runnable() {
			
			@Override
			public void run() {
				for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++) {
					
					try {
						getUI().getSession().getLockInstance().lock();
						// HERE updating the value
						pi.setValue(((float) (i + 1)) / 1000f);
						pi.markAsDirty();
					} finally {
						getUI().getSession().getLockInstance().unlock();
					}
					
					try {
						Thread.sleep(150);
					} catch (InterruptedException e) {

					}
				}
				
			}
		};
		new Thread(r).start();
