I need to show a alert message after the batch process is completed. For that i have create a static boolean varible in a class and in my batch process finish i am calling this varible and changing the value of the boolean varible, when the process is completed. I am using a apex button to run the batch process. The value of the boolean is get changed but i am not able to show the message when the process is completed. my batch file

 global void finish(Database.BatchableContext BC)
    System.debug('Batch Process Completed in finish 1');
    BatchUpdate_info.Updateresult = true;
    System.debug('Batch Process Completed in finish 2');
    system.debug('Batch process result ' + BatchUpdate_info.Updateresult);

} static var

public class BatchUpdate_info { 

public static boolean Updateresult = false; }

VF page to run the batch file

<apex:page controller="ctrl_ConatctBatch">
<apex:messages />
<apex:form >
<apex:commandButton value="Run Batch Process" action="{!getRunBatch}" />  


public class ctrl_ConatctBatch

public String getRunBatch() 
     contact_BatchProcess cb = new contact_BatchProcess ();
     Database.executeBatch(cb, 200);
     System.debug('Result : In getRunBatch function');
     if(BatchUpdate_info.Updateresult == true){
        System.debug('Batch Process Completed');
        ApexPages.Message dupeMsg = new      ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.INFO,'Batch Process Completed');
        BatchUpdate_info.Updateresult = false;
        System.debug('Batch Update result ' + BatchUpdate_info.Updateresult);

This is a nice Batch Status bar you might want to look into

Thats a really good find! – developer__c Jun 8 at 14:06

The better approach for this would be use an email alert to send to the User once a batch is completed .

If you want on the page an action poller or streaming API is the only way to detect this and show on to the page the moment batch completes .
