Enable updating progress bar.
If you enable progress dialog updates, the functions FM.InsertRecordQuery, FM.InsertRecordQueryIgnoreDuplicates and FM.InsertRecordTSV will update progress dialog.
If cancel button is clicked, the functions may cancel and return an error. Depending on event handling a cancel button may not work while a plugin function runs!

You can use Base/Factor to adjust updates in progress dialog. e.g. if you have 4 things to do and FM.InsertRecordTSV is 2nd one, you can use a base of 25 (so 25% is for first thing to do) and factor of 0.25. Our progress will go from 25 to 50% than.


Import tab return text data as records with progress dialog:

Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS( "ProgressDialog.SetTitle"; "Please wait." )]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS( "ProgressDialog.SetShowButton"; 0 )]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS( "ProgressDialog.SetTopText"; "Importing text file..." )]
