To whoever replied, thanks, but the actual reply isn't showing up in here. I don't know why! I think google groups has been a bit wonky today.

I am trying to figure out a way of displaying how far along an AJAX download is. Assuming I know the size of the file being downloaded (this will require the server to send a content-length header) then if I can check the number of bytes downloaded thus far I should be able to work out the download progress.

So what I need to know, how can you get the value of the content- length header if it is set, and how can you check the number of bytes sent periodically? I can then display a percentage for the case where both are known, or simply a count of downloaded bytes when I don't know the content length.
