The W3C Strives for Progress


The W3C has been working on a project titled "Progress Events 1.0" that concerns data transfer in Ajax web applications. Progress Events are events that occur when additional data is downloaded on-demand. It refers to scripts which can monitor progress, construct loading bars, and take various kinds of action once data has been transferred.

The 5 progress events are loadstart, progress, error, aboart, and load.

loadstart = the operation has begun.

progress = the operation is in progress.

error = the operation failed to complete.

aboart = the operation was cancelled.

load = the operation sucessfully completed.
