How do I control where the jobs progress indicator goes on the status line?

I have a status line, it has some items on it already that i've added previously.

I now need the Jobs progress indicator to be visible when a job is running. So, I turned on configurer.setShowProgressIndicator(true) in preWindowOpen(). I told my jobs to set setSystem( true ) on each of them.

However, the resulting behavior is that the space on the status line that *used* to have status messages in it (which I post messages to on occasion) is now cut in half by a draggable-dashed-line all the time. The Jobs progress indicator shows up to the right of this when a job is active, but it kills the amount of space i have to post status messages now.

Is there any way to programmatically pick where the Jobs progress monitor goes?
I'd love it if it stayed on the far left side of the status line (where there is lots of wasted space).

Any ideas would be appreciated.

thanks,

-dave

Hi Dave,

I'm not sure that you have to make it visible all the time. Just use the run
method of the workbenchwindow class. Also you can get a progressmonitor from
the view- or editorsite actionbars to show progress when you need it.

I want the area visible, but I want to be able to choose the location. It seems to default to the lower right hand corner. If I could make it always show up in the upper right hand corner, i would be very happy.

I've not seen any API calls that will help me do this, although I can drag it by mouse to where I want it.

thanks,
