Back to Task Builder Overview


The area at the bottom of the Task Builder comprises an intuitive status bar that displays real-time progress of a running task through graphics and text. When a task is run from the Task Builder, the status bar graphically indicates execution state by means of a progress indicator and activity icons. Textual information such as execution status and runtime details are also displayed. The status bar is a great way to provide useful and relevant information without interrupting execution or breaking task flow, which can be very helpful and convenient for task developers, typically during testing periods.
