I have looked at the snippet that describes a general method for
displaying the hourglass during 'long-running operations'. I wonder if
anyone has a similar example for controlling the display of the hourglass
during a 'slow download' -- an mp3 file for a user with a dial-up modem,
or a large pdf file even for a user with DSL -- in the Browser. It's not
clear [at least to me] where to intercept the events that define the
beginning and ending of that interval and what 'runnable' to to start in
order to span that interval.

Thank you.

Hi Terry,

There is currently no notification sent for events like download start/stop,
only for the begin/end of receiving+rendering a page. There is a request
for something similar to what you're asking about (see
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=83444 ), but its initial
investigation indicated that this may not be available on all platforms yet.
If you CC yourself to the report then you'll be updated on its progress.
