I have recently made a CGI script that have a very slow answer time (it executes a lot of queries on a remote mainframe) and the Microsoft IE3 have a strange behavior with this CGI (and possible others). When I click the
Submit button I don't get the Hourglass cursor nor the message "Web site found. Waiting for reply" at the status bar. I know that it works because in few minutes I have the answer but I'm afraid that my users could click the
submit button twice or more expecting some kind of message or cursor changing. What can be
done to solve this problem?
In this case, how do I send an intemediate page with some message like "Please wait... Processing" ?
I'm using VB5 with the MS IIS3.0 web server (NT4 SP3).
