In D7, I've got some forms that are responsible for uploading potentially large video files via managed_form fields. My server is properly set up for showing uploadprogress (or seems to be, according to phpinfo and Drupal's status report), but when I submit the form via the Submit button, I get no progress bar. Is this just "how it works"?
It's probably worth noting that I've hidden the "Upload" button after a long series of usability problems with my site's users, so that may be a blindingly obvious factor in my problem. But I'm still interested in getting some sort of upload indication in response to the Submit button; I'm not averse to bashing some stuff into the page via a jQuery .submit() handler or whatever if that's what it takes. Is there a way for me to have my cake and eat it too? Thanks!
