status bar on the screen while openinng a url


Hi all,

I have a requirement to open a pdf in an abap module pool screen.

I'm able to open the pdf in the screen using <b>show_url</b> and <b>dispatch</b> methods of <b>cl_gui_html_viewer</b> class. But the fetching of the pdf is taking some time and the screen remains blank for sometime.

I wanted to have some status bar being shown below till the pdf download is done so that the user will know that some process is goin on. For this i have used SAP_GUI_PROGRESS_INDICATOR function module. But while fetching the pdf the status bar is shown only for a while and the screen again remains blank.

This is my problem. Is ther any method which returns some value saying whether the download is complete or not.

Please help me in this regard. This is very urgent.

Thanks in advance.
