I have an query output with 200+ records in it which i am displaying 100 at a time. and i am using cfFlush to display a wait message while it s loading. (which i cant figure out how to get rid of after its loaded)

my question is (and i'm assuming there isnt) but is there a way to know the progress of the query to display a progress bar... or is there a way to cfflush the output so that it will begin populating while its still querying? it is taking about a minute for the page to display and i am trying to stop users from reloading the page in mid query.

ColdFusion was unable to add the header you specified to the output stream. This is probably because you have already used a cfflush tag in your template or buffered output is turned off.

You could use cfajaxproxy and use javascript to show/hide a waiting gif image. Look up that tag at Adobe, it is a great tag. With cfflush you can only use it once I believe because the headers for the web page has already been sent over to the browser.

No. Queries don't return partial progress. You'll only know when they're complete.

or is there a way to cfflush the output so that it will begin populating while its still querying?

Definitely not for file downloads. The old hack was to display a fake progress image/div when the download starts. Then hide it when the download's finished. The newer tags like cfprogressbar are a spin on that old idea. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ColdFusion/9.0/CFMLRef/WSc3ff6d0ea77859461172e0811cbec19562-7fdf.html
