from B4J?

B4A + B4J solution:
B4X:
Sub Class_Globals
    Private Root As B4XView
    Private xui As XUI
End Sub

Public Sub Initialize
  
End Sub

'This event will be called once, before the page becomes visible.
Private Sub B4XPage_Created (Root1 As B4XView)
    Root = Root1
    Root.LoadLayout("MainPage")
End Sub

Private Sub Button1_Click
 'In B4A you need to add to manifest editor: CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, Core.NetworkClearText)
    Wait For (DownloadAndTrackProgress("http://mirror.filearena.net/pub/speed/SpeedTest_16MB.dat")) Complete (Success As Boolean)
End Sub

Private Sub DownloadAndTrackProgress (url As String) As ResumableSub
    Dim j As HttpJob
    j.Initialize("", Me)
    j.Download(url)
    Wait For (FindTaskId(j)) Complete (TaskId As Int)
    Dim b() As Boolean = Array As Boolean(False)
    TrackProgress(j, b, TaskId)
    Wait For (j) JobDone (j As HttpJob)
    b(0) = True
    j.Release
    Return j.Success
End Sub

Private Sub FindTaskId (job As HttpJob) As ResumableSub
    Do While True
        Sleep(30)
        If HttpUtils2Service.TaskIdToJob.IsInitialized = False Then Continue
        Dim TaskToJob As Map = HttpUtils2Service.TaskIdToJob
        For Each id As Int In TaskToJob.Keys
            If TaskToJob.Get(id) = job Then
                Return id
            End If
        Next
    Loop
    Return -1
End Sub

Private Sub TrackProgress (j As HttpJob, Stop() As Boolean, TaskId As Int)
    Do While Stop(0) = False
        If j.Out.IsInitialized Then
            Dim TotalLength As Long = j.Response.ContentLength
            Dim size As Long = File.Size(HttpUtils2Service.TempFolder, TaskId)
            Log(size & ", " & TotalLength)
        End If
        Sleep(100)
    Loop
End Sub

You need to add to the build configuration (Ctrl + B): HU2_PUBLIC

Thank you very much Erel
I am going to try to add to my project.
Where I must add " HU2_PUBLIC"?... My IDE is in spanish... 1st, 2nd or 4th field?...

B4X:
#CustomBuildAction: After Packager, C:\Program Files (x86)\Inno Setup 6\.....

Hi!
The file is saved correctly. It size is 0k
But, why in this line
B4X:
Log(size & ", " & TotalLength)
Size is always = 0? :rolleyes:
B4X:
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
0, 16777216
How can I solve it?

Create a small project where it doesn't work and upload it.

It is amazing. Exactly same subs in both projects and in my project does not work... hahahahahaha🙄😲🥴

Well.. in Debug mode does not work but in Release (uploaded project)

I understand. It is related to a bug in debug mode that is already fixed in the unreleased version that I'm using.

Try this:
B4X:
Private Sub DownloadAndTrackProgress (url As String, sFile As String) As ResumableSub
    Dim j As HttpJob
    j.Initialize("", Me)
    j.Download(url)
    #if debug
    'delete if using B4J v9.0+
    Sleep(0)
    #End If
    Dim TaskToJob As Map = HttpUtils2Service.TaskIdToJob
    Do While HttpUtils2Service.TaskIdToJob.IsInitialized = False
        Sleep(30)
    Loop
       
    Dim TaskId As Int
    For Each id As Int In TaskToJob.Keys
        If TaskToJob.Get(id) = j Then
            TaskId = id
            Exit
        End If
    Next
    Dim b() As Boolean = Array As Boolean(False)
    TrackProgress(j, b, TaskId)
    Wait For (j) JobDone (j As HttpJob)
    b(0) = True
   
    If j.Success Then
        Dim out As OutputStream = File.OpenOutput(File.DirTemp, sFile, False)
        File.Copy2(j.GetInputStream, out)
        out.Close '<------ very important
    End If
   
    j.Release
    Return j.Success
End Sub

@Erel !!!!

Now is Working in my project!!.. Changing existing sub for above sub 🤣

The line
B4X:
Sleep(0)
was the key

EDIT!!
In my project in release mode does not work. I have deleted the lines
B4X:
#if debug.... #End If

Now works fine

I presume that TrackProgress is a Sub with coding done by the developer (rather than a Library Sub). If so, could someone post the coding that it could have?

Thanks, Dadaista.
I have 2 questions about the code.
1. I don't understand the use of the Boolean array b to check whether the download has finished: Each element is defined with value False in DownloadAndTrackProgress. Then TrackProgress is called with array passed as a parameter. The parameter Stop(0), which has the value of b(0), is then used to loop continually in TrackProgress until its value becomes True. But it is not set to True in TrackProgress. But it is set to True after the 'Wait For' command (in Download AndTrackProgress) after the Job has Finished due the JobDone parameter in that command. I presume that this is because the TrackProgress sub will be continually invoked even after that command is executed. I guess that this is due to the way that Android code works in that code after a line of code is started even though that line of code has not finished execution. Am I correct?
2. Why use a Boolean array when only the first element is ever used rather than a Boolean variable?
