W3C Progress Events 1.0 Working Draft

Category: Standards, W3C

The W3C Web API group has a new working draft, Progress Events 1.0.

This document describes event types that can be used for monitoring the progress of an operation. It is primarily intended for contexts such as data transfer operations specified by XMLHTTPRequest, or Media Access Events.

This API standardizes progress events that seem to popup in many different APIs (and can be a touch different).

These are the events defined:

Progress Events

The spec then goes on to share two use cases:

  • Example 1: Using progress events in another specification
  • Example 2: Using progress event an SVG document.

In other W3C news, the Web Accessibility for Older Users: A Literature Review working draft is out. I had a laugh a touch at the classifications, and how 75+ years == “old-old”. Give this document a read to see detailed studies on the population and how to work with them.
