Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

im trying to get the progressbar in glade to work in conjunction with my web browser. What i want to happen is the progress bar shows how far along a page is being loaded.

I have scoured the internet looking for a way to implement this but i have found nothing.

im using glade in conjunction with Python (its all being created using quickly if that helps). The web browser is also using WebKit and WebView.

has anyone got any ideas on how i can script the progress bar so it works properly?

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Most programming questions are off-topic here; they can be asked on Stack Overflow. If your question is Ubuntu-specific (for example, if this code does work with some compiler on some OS), it would be on-topic. –  green7 Apr 21 '13 at 9:12
The web browser is designed to work with Ubuntu, and im running it through Quickly, Glade, Python and Terminal. So as the program is being designed to work with Ubuntu i would say that it was on-topic –  DriftedMass Apr 21 '13 at 10:14

Here is a tutorial for building a web browser with GTK and Python:

I'm pretty sure that this tutorial covered how to add a progress bar. If not, look here for the official documentation:

I'm sorry I can't help more but the video and documentation combined should give you a good start.

Firstly thank you for the reference materials. I did go throw the video, i actually created the files as he showed in the video but when i went to run it through terminal (python browser.py) i then tried adding the code to my own browser code. Once i had gone back to my browser i tried implementing what i saw in the video and the reference materials and all i got when running it in terminal (quickly run) was error after error. I then went through all of the code making changes as i could see them. but nothing worked If you could provide any more help i would really appreciate it –  DriftedMass Apr 21 '13 at 10:09
