Curses::UI::Dialog::Progress is not really a dialog, since the user has no way of interacting with it. It is merely a way of presenting progress information to the user of your program.

See exampes/demo−Curses::UI::Dialog::Progress in the distribution for a short demo.


−title < TEXT >

Set the title of the dialog window to TEXT .

−message < TEXT >

This option sets the initial message to show to TEXT . This message is displayed using a Curses::UI::Label, so it can not contain any newline (\n) characters.

−nomessage < BOOLEAN >

If BOOLEAN has a true value, the dialog window will not contain a message label. By default −nomessage has a false value.

−min < VALUE >

−max < VALUE >

−pos < VALUE >

−nopercentage < BOOLEAN >

−nocenterline < BOOLEAN >

These options control the progressbar of the dialog. For an explanation of these options, see Curses::UI::Progressbar.
