I have a lengthy SKILL script on a layout and it would be helpful to be able to see progress as it occurs. Is there a way to have the layout update at selected points in the script?
Also, the CIW is updating but doesn't make its first update visible until part way through the script after several printf statements have executed. Is there a way to force an update to the CIW as printf statements are executed?
Having this capability would help with the user interface so that users can plan their activities better and not be confused by what might look like a frozen script.
Maybe hiFlush is what you want? Alternatively use hiDisplayProgressBox() or hiSetProgressBar() - and related functions - to get some visual feedback of progress.
