Splash Screen needed while forms load.
Posted on 2002-05-15
I have an application that is using <div> to hide parts of the form. It takes a few seconds for the form to load (especially once it has had data entered into it).
I would like to have a little "splash screen" that says "Loading Forms" display while the forms are loading, right now all there is, is a white screen.
I have tried loading a form first, and then having the onload of that form load my frameset, but the frameset load clears the page it is on. (I hope I am explaing this right).
The url that is used to link to the frameset is:
"<a href=./quote?OpenFrameset&Frame=main&SRC=Lookup/" + UniqueKey + openstatus + " target=_top>";
I have seen sites that display a message while the data is being loaded so I know it can be done. Does anyone have an idea?
